Since they are touring together i thought this might be appropiate. Arcade Fire's Neon Bible or Patrick Wolf's the Magic Position? Listen to both albums before voting please. Surprisingly enough my vote's with Patrick Wolf, pretty incredible album.

Where's the PW stream? Anyway, once you have the poll option ready, please put one vote for The Arcade Fire for me.

I think everybody should listen to the full albums before voting, i dont think one song from either is enough for an informed vote.

Thanks for the tip. Where's the free full album stream? My best of '07 so far is now a 3-way battle between Neon Bible, Klaxon's and The Shins (Wincing The Night Away is a phenomenal grower) ... so you better not waste my time j/k ;)

I really enjoy the magic position, the stars is a great track, but as a whole neon bible is light years ahead. I really hope they bring Patrick back to the US for their tour here.

Dont know where you can find a stream, the album was just released in the UK today, wont be in the US until May 1st. The album is definitely out there on the file sharing networks (if you're cool with that). Try doing a torrent search or using Soulseek.

Naah, I'll just check NME ... Neon Bible is still streaming over there http://www.nme.com/mediaPlayer&playlist_id=904 ...

OMG! The Magic Position ... the full album stream is also there.

I'll comeback with my verdict. Give me 3 full album rotations/listening, okay?

Well, the start of Overture is really good. Okay, nice start!

WTF? It is scoring a 10 ... oh well, it's NME :D

No prob. Did you see the Oasis album is also there? I've already listened to about 7 times to Kaiser Chiefs album over there. Wow, !!!'s is now out there too. (Not really sure if all songs of those albums will be streaming)

The second is also good but on 1st 2 tracks listening so far (vs. my 1st listening 1st 2 tracks of The Arcade Fire ... I'm into the third track ... I'd give slight edge to Neon Bible so far ... it has the Klaxon's vibe and tunes going)

Are you a DJ (DJ Insu)? I'm checking your myspace link.

Sweet beans, didn't even know Oasis was still putting out music (not sure if that's a good thing though).

Ya, it is a pretty tough call, i'm thinking I should have put a "both are awesome" option in the poll.

Very talented bloke. Bit weird too, but nice enough.

Because this was a poll from last year when the Arcade Fire were playing. Check the dates. I think someone necro posted and raised this old poll from the dead.

neon bible is better, but it doesn't have as catchy singles as the magic position

the magic position > keep the car running
ambulance & emergency > no cars go 2.0

The Patrick Wolf record is "interesting" but there is absolutely, positively no comparison between these two records. Arcade Fire wins. Patrick Wolf loses.

It's a rather weird comparison.
