    Default NEON BIBLE = HEAVEN

    I just got the new Arcade Fire album, and it's totally awesome. I'm so psyched to hear "Keep The Car Running," "No Cars Go," and whatever else they choose to play. I just want those two, because they might be my new favorite Arcade Fire songs.

    I. can't. wait.

    No Cars Go is an old song.

    Hey mister hipster, he never said it was a new song. Just said it's his new favorite.

    They played No Cars Go at the 2005 Coachella, right? Cause I surely recognize it from somewhere, and I can't imagine where else that would be.

    Intervention and Ocean of Noise are my two new favs.

    And the update to NoCarsGo is awesome!

    the album is OK. There are some weak tracks, some solid ones, and a couple great ones.

    I liked Funeral a lot better, I've given it 12 listens so far and I'm pretty sure that's where I stand. I'm almost inclined to say sophomore slump, but it's a solid enough album not to.

    I've listened to the streams in The Hype Machine etc ... I love tracks #2 thru #10 (fall in love on 1st and/or 2nd listening only) - DEFINITELY am going to buy it in CD and vinyl!

    Keep The Car Running
    Black Waves/Bad Vibrations
    Neon Bible
    Intervention
    Ocean of Noise
    The Well and The Lighthouse
    Antichrist Television Blues
    Windowsill
    No Cars Go

    Interestingly that 1st and last tracks are growing on me. Great album - almost as good as the epic Funeral.

    Great 2007 start for indie music ...

    1. The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible 9.5/10
    2. The Shins - Wincing The Night Away 9.0/10
    3. Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer 9.0

    Menomena - Friend and Foe 8.0/10
    The Good, The Bad and The Queen 8.0/10
    Deerhoof - Friend Opportunity 7.5/10
    Piebald - Accidental Gentlemen 7.5/10

    After about 20 rotations, Ocean of Noise is the only weak track for me- and that is even growing on me as I listen to it more.

    They played No Cars Go at Coachella 2005, yes. It was on their first EP.

    I had an old version of No Cars Go. The album version is cleaner, and better, and my new weapon of choice. I want them to close their set with it.

    i like both versions of no cars go. the old one sounds more raw and natural. the new one sounds more...produced, but its still good.

    Because they ran out of ideas.

    I heard the album... I think it is okay. I mean, it's no Funeral... But it is still a good album.

    There has been some sweet releases this year (tgtbtq, shins) but this is far superior to me. This is a 10. It honestly feels as good as a new radiohead release(almost.) Can't wait for its vinyl.

    and with that, heres a sweet imaginary Coachet-list:

    Neon Bible(just win and regine on drums)
    No Cars Go
    Neighborhood #2 (Laika)
    Black Waves/Bad Vibrations
    (Antichrist Television Blues)
    Haiti
    Wake Up
    Keep the Car Running
    My Body is a Cage
    Neighborhood #1(Tunnels)
    Rebellion(Lies)
    Intervention
    Power Out

    Hell yes
