More unease from Arcade FireJanuary 29, 2008
The aforementioned It’s Nice That had the GALL to suggest that Neon Bible is not as good as Arcade Fire’s previous rekkid. This is, of course, pish. Neon Bible is every bit as good–it may even be slightly better. You haven’t listened to it enough, guys! As with many great albums, it all sounds perfectly pleasant at first… nothing earth-shaking… and then there’s a moment when everything clicks and you’re unable to listen to anything else for a month. I think you must have stopped playing it just before that point. It’s the only logical explanation I can come up with for this appalling lapse in taste.
