Antichrist Television Blues is repetitive in my view as much as Lemon is to U2. I think they are but there is a flow and wonderful storytelling to both songs that keeps things interesting.
With ATB, there is actually alot of variation with his vocals and music that match the right feeling conveyed with the lyrics.
I think the song is actually quite smart.

I think this album sounds like the best of Springsteen, Dylan and U2 combined. Like I said before, these songs are more like hymns that spill out spiritual frustration.

I get a lot of Joshua Tree feel with this in the metaphoric style of writing on Neon Bible.

I grew up in Tennessee, the belt buckle of the bible belt. Since Win Butler grew up in Texas, which is one of the big "holes in the belt", I think he did a great job of conjuring alot of images and feelings of the influence of religion in the southeast.

I'm sure this has been around for a while, but being the Springsteen fan that I am, I was listening to AF's cover of State Trooper again, and while the quality isn't the greatest, I love how they do it...

It is kind of short but it's all relative. Consider that U2 has what,10 or 11 more albums than Arcade Fire and their sets are sometimes 21-22 songs which isn't that much more. Coldplay has three albums and their sets were 17-18 somgs I believe.

But I consider these shows warm-up concerts anyway. I think their sets will get longer during their spring tour.

i definitely hope so. as it is now, they're only playing for about 80 minutes. thats not a long concert. they have to play 20+ songs.

If you're not a premium member, you can't receive PMs, but it's easy to find it if you do a Google search.

I like this album far more than I did Funeral. I was always impressed by Funeral as a debut album, but there was something missing from it for me. I think it had something to do with the guitar parts, though I'm not sure exactly.

My favorite tracks are Keep the Car Running and My Body Is a Cage. Windowsill sounds to me like a song Johnny Cash never got around to recording, and the new version of No Cars Go is so much more polished.

There are quite a few albums coming out in the next few months that I'm really looking forward to, but I have a feeling this will still end up as one of my favorites for '07.
