for the past week or so i've been listening to neon bible by the arcade fire. i'm totally new to the band. anna bought the cd a couple of months ago. i've heard their song 'no cars go' somewhere before that, but had not until now listened to a whole album. now i have and let me tell you the band is fucking outstanding. i don't know the drummer's name but he's one of the better percussionists i've heard in a long time. i love the singer's voice.

i'll say nothing more but point out martin stannard's review of a recent gig in the u.k.

below is 'wake up' done live and intimate. watch and listen and see if you don't find yrself tapping those toes. proof that you are awake.

A strong album, yes, yet check out, "funeral," their first release, which, as a whole, with no holes, soars over "neon bible."

Best, Crg Hill

I'm not a Neon Bible fan, but the first EP and Funeral are personal favorites. Saw them live in London too, and they totally rocked.
