im looking for some new music today as im very bored at work so figured i'd try some arcade fire.
where to start?
this is the general consensus as well, not just my opinion.
But I'll be surprised if they ever better Funeral.
If you can find a recording of their live performance at Electric Picnic in 2005, I'd also HIGHLY recommend giving it a listen.
I was at that, deleriously good stuff
...but yes, Funeral then Neon Bible then the EP in that order. I guess this is what most people think. And I equally guess that a shedton of posts contradicting this will appear below me.
There's only 2 albums, both recent-ish. Do you really have to ask?
is arguably one of my favourite songs. incredible stuff.
which part of you disagrees with you strongly enough that you want to have it out with you over the matter?
is not a term i would've used
Talk about squandering a promising start. Dull, pompous, repetitive.
so much. I'd probably rate it higher than funeral. But either or in terms of 2 albums and picking them out. Also this bootleg is a pretty decent reflection of their live show: http://ceart-bootlegs.blogspot.com/2008/08/arcade-fire-enmore-theatre-sydney.html
arcade fire euphoria.
or, if you like modest mouse circa 'the moon and antarctica', have a listen to 'power out' from the same record.
i've only given neon bible around four listens but it totally failed to grab me. that said funeral took a few goes.
and watch this http://www.blogotheque.net/Arcade-Fire,2867
Listen to The Acorn instead.
The Fire are just U2 without a no girlfriend rule.
I have this recording.....the stuff of legend.
somewhere else altogether.
