Arcade Fire: Neon Bible 12"

Merge Records


The eagerly anticipated second album from Montreal'sí_Arcade Fireí_exceeds all expectations.Neon Bibleí_was written, produced, arranged, and performed by theí_Arcade Fireí_and recorded throughout 2006 in Quebec, New York, Budapest, and London with recording and engineering help from Markus Dravs (Bjork, Brian Eno) and Scott Colburn (Animal Collective, Sun City Girls). With string and orchestral arrangements by the band's own Owen Pallet (also Final Fantasy) and Regine Chassagne,í_Neon Bibleí_is full of both half-assed punk rock mistakes and meticulously orchestrated woodwinds; processed strings and mandolin; and quiet rumbles and loud rumbles. But mostly,í_Neon Bibleí_is just eleven songs that the band thinks are really good!
