the arcade fire: neon bible

Continuing the series this week of "Five favorite albums that aren't on Napster, but are available on Imeem", this is Neon Bible from The Arcade Fire. I'm afraid this is as close to America as we're going to come this week... and we'll have to settle with Canadia.

This band is huge, literally. Seven permanent members and an additional six that travel with the band on the road. I came across them on NPT one night performing on Austin City Limits... what an incredible live show. These guys are true musicians, and they know their stuff well. High points of the album... well, of course "Keep The Car Running" and then "No Cars Go". Basically they need to continue writing songs about cars. Oh, and yes, that's a real pipe organ on "Intervention".

I like that their recent tours have centered around finding churches that have big pipe organs, and those are the venues they play in.
