BTW, what I have heard from British Sea Power has been very enjoyable.

I prefer Neon Bible.
Bite your tongue, sir! Funeral is an emotional rollercoaster. Neon Bible just sounds like Arcade Fire trying to make an Arcade Fire record. But it's still pretty good.

Same here. They're coming to town soon, but it's the same night as prom, I think.

I have not heard that one. It's on the very long list of "Albums the lead singer of my band is going to put on my computer for me." That list is about 150 cds long, though, so it will be awhile (as I insist on listening to them, 5 at a time, over 2 weeks).

I think it's more of a natural progression from the darker tracks on Funeral. The Springsteen/Talking Heads influences are definitely heavier on Neon Bible as well.

I could send it to you if you like.

That vote won't be from me, though. I'm not finished with Phanan's list and I've gotta shower and get ready for work and vacuum my room. The girlfriend's coming over after work and I don't want a messy room.

Ugh, I really don't like REM. I don't get their fame.

OK, yeah, it's a good progression. I would say that the Springsteen influences are heightened, and the Talking Heads influences are muted. At least vocally.

Neon Bible's about a 7.5 or 8 for me, while Funeral's probably a 9.

Although, LM, be glad. Why? you might ask? Because at this point, I might be enjoying Phanan's list more than I enjoyed yours.

Perhaps I just met my match this round.

Time to cut my losses and get ready for...whoever I face next. Not sure.

That's fair.

I love both albums though, and I'll listen to both when in different moods, but NB's a stronger effort overall, methinks.

I'm close to having a bitchout...

So if Funeral's a 6 for me, that would make Neon Bible a 4.5 of 5. This makes me look forward to it less.
