Arcade Fire released their second studio album Neon Bible in 2007. It does not have anything to do with the novel of the same name by John Kennedy Toole. I read that book so many years ago. I am still waiting for a film version of his Pulitzer Prize for Fiction novel A Confederacy of Dunces.
Trivia Moment: The recording of the Budapest Film Orchestra and a military men’s choir were produced in Budapest.
My favourite songs are “Ocean of Noise”, “My Body is a Cage”, “Keep the Car Running”, and “Windowsill”.
Overall, I like the album a lot, but I think it deserves more attention than their first album. It seems to be more in hyperdrive and their isn’t really a “hit” song to grasp onto that many people need to draw them in. The instrumentation on the album is quite grand for an indie rock album. I recommend it if you are patient enough to give it a few listenings. 9/10.
