I am so dying to see them live. I can't believe that they are not coming to Miami.

i've read it a couple of places- like at the link below. it hasn't been confirmed by Win Butler, i don't think, so it's totally open to speculation. but i kinda like that interpretation...

Not that the Killers didn't do a great job on their follow-up. They just didn't nail it like this.
Exactly!!! I love ST, but frankly, NB kicks its ass.

Funny that this record, which is so anti-religion and govt, is more 'all American' in the cosmic sense than BF's faux patriotism.

I don't think there's anything there to hate

I'm not a fan of Arcade Fire at al, but my girlfriend plays this album quite a bit

I like the way they dress up the songs
the strings and organ and brass parts all work really well
the songs themselves I'm not a big fan of though (a couple of them I do like)
it also doesn't help that the vocals don't do much for me except for annoying me now & again

hitsdailydouble's weekly sales chart is 75% done, and as of now Neon Bible is at #5. So a Top 5 debut on the Billboard chart is quite likely.

hitsdailydouble's chart is now final...Neon Bible came in at #2 with 83,165. #1, Notorious B.I.G. came in with 99,490. Given the gap, it looks like it'll probably land at #2 or 3 on Billboard (Daughtry's at #3 on HDD with 80,811, 4th is 5,000 behind that).


I don't follow the charts every week, but it looks like an extraordinarily slow week all around. With the reviews and everything though, I think Neon Bible will show stability or maybe even be a grower in the weeks to come as far as sales.

Well, I was hoping for top three, so I'm pleased with the turnout.

Hasn't he been dead for many, many, MANY years?

B.I.G??? No way man I saw him last weekend with Tu Pac eating a burger.

I really wonder how Arcade Fire will do in the Billboard charts.

I really love Neon Bible for many of the reasons already mentioned in this thread. More a fan of the music than the lyrics although the lyrics are quite interesting throughout. The only thing I can think of that I'm not thrilled about with this band is (no way is it even close to "hate") the lead singer's (Win Butler?) voice. It does not come off distinct or special to me. I love everything else about them right now!

Edit: Oh.. and also, is it just me or is the production a little muddled on this album? There doesn't seem to be much of an improvement from the leaked tunes on the original CD.

Yeah, the production is mediocre.

But I must say I am starting to appreciate Win's voice. It's getting better.
