Arcade Fire: Neon Bible

The critical success of Arcade Fire’s debut, “Funeral”, has enabled this 7 piece from Montréal to offer a lavished packaging for their second album, not to mention the music within. It’s an album that I find rather hard to describe, as the Arcade Fire seem pretty much peerless. The album features orchestration throughout with strings, a large brass section and a gospel choir not to mention the church organ that takes the lead on “Intervention”.
