Well, I think Neon Bible carries that emotional edge even better. I think they've progressed and will continue to do so.

But yeah, these are minor details. Both records are fantastic.

My problem with Neon Bible was people went crazy over it and made it so overrated that it became hard to appreciate it.

Especially when it first came out. It wasn't as bad as the hype for HTDAAB, nor was the dropoff in interest as noticeable, but it didn't help.

I've always thought it was about a B or so. Better live.

I can definitely agree with these statements.

However, I don't let a forum or other people's comments determine how good an album is.

Ok, now I'm gonna go eat for real.

Just got back from seeing SATC

There were a few men there with wives and girlfriends, lol... I had to laugh.

And now I want to go shopping... I forgot how much of a bad influence that show was...

SATC is destroying American society from the inside.

And the only attractive woman on the show is Kristen Davis, which is just wrong. There's nothing for the men at all.

Alright. Starting Funeral.

The only songs I'd purchased on iTunes before were Rebellion, Wake Up, and Neighborhood #3, so most of this will be new to me.

7 Kettles is absolutely gorgeous. Offhand, I'm not a big fan of Crown Of Love, but the rest is, at the very worst, pretty good.

Neighborhood #1 is a good opener. Solid song throughout.

I think Tunnels is my favorite Arcade Fire song but I forget if that is Neighborhood #1, 2 or 3.

So much of this record reminds me of Talking Heads, Laika most of all.

#1.

Une Anne Sans Lumiere is underrated.

Laika was a bit weaker, but still another good track. This album's actually surprising me a bit.
