Is it just me that feels this way?
Haven't heard the album. But I really like the first single.
See also, Neon Bible and Viva La Vida (well about half the songs)
I absolutely adore the first two singles but, in truth, there's not too much else on the album to get excited about. I think your criticism is a little harsh...nah, fuck it, it's right.
I must stick on Funeral again. You're right. Funeral is a collection of tracks of sprawling brilliance. Neon Bible is really poor in comparison. Not that it's a bad album, but it just seems to lean towards more conventional Bruce Springsteen-esque music writing and lacks the emotive power of tracks like Power Out and Rebellion (Lies). Gotta stick on Funeral asap.
does sound like Arcade Fire in parts but that's no bad thing surely?
