A vial of hope and a vial of pain In the light, they both looked the same Poured them out on into the world On every boy and every girl. It's in the Neon Bible, the Neon Bible Not much chance for survival If the Neon Bible is right. Take the poison of your age Don't lick your fingers when you turn the page What I know is what you know is right In the city it's the only light.

Summary: One of the most anticipated releases of 2007 is this second album from Montreal's Arcade Fire, the Win Butler- and Regine Chassagne-led band that won over bloggers, critics, and, ultimately, fans with their 2004 debut 'Funeral.

Fitting Neon Bible 's more worldly concerns, the Arcade Fire have streamlined the raw, large sound of Funeral into something that achieves the same magnitudinous scale through more economical means. Propelled by inventive guitar work and Jeremy Gara's steady drums, the group pares back anything that might curb the controlled forward thrust of songs like "Black Mirror", "Keep the Car Running", or "The Well and the Lighthouse".

You and her both are looking for NEON BIBLE. Revolutionary safe new Program really works.

In my experience, "Neon Bible" is the best album Arcade Fire has produced and will be hard, if not impossible, to top. There is something very natural, very genuine about the experience that cannot simply be duplicated. This is why I would highly recommend "Neon Bible" to music lovers everywhere, no matter your tastes, because I believe there is something for everyone. 5 people found this helpful.

Neon Bible became Arcade Fire's highest-charting album at the time, debuting on the Billboard 200 at number two, selling 92,000 copies in its first week and more than 400,000 to date. Being released within a month of similarly successful releases by The Shins and Modest Mouse, Neon Bible was cited as an example of the popularization of indie rock.

Redirected from Neon Bible (album)). Neon Bible is the second studio album by Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire. It was first released on March 5, 2007 in Europe and a day later in North America by Merge Records.

When The Arcade Fire released their critically acclaimed, fan obsessive, epic, beautiful, strange and awe-inspiring debut Funeral, the face of indie rock changed. Hell, the face of music changed. Neon Bible is dark, even draining, but it’s not hopeless. The album then comes to a close with My Body is a Cage, an odd yet lovely dirge that ends with Butler singing set my spirit free.

Armin
No issues found, sounds clear with no popping or hisses

Ckelond
One of the best sounding records in my collection. I replaced my original 2007 copy, which also sounded excellent, with this. I'll be using it for sound testing if I suspect my cartridge is going bad. Wide dynamics, quiet vinyl, zero distortion.

SING
Neon Bible - Arcade FireUpon reading all the reviews here i was hesitant on listening to my copy of Neon Bible. I have to say that I experienced no issues what so ever with my copy. Side 3 played through flawlessly. So there are good copies out there.

Gagas
Really Nice repress. Nice print work. Sounds really good. Excellent album.Enjoy !

Ffan
Great album and pressing. Packaging quality was very good too. The album itself can come off a little preachy, but it is one of my favorite Arcade Fire albums.

Winail
Great pressing. Uses the original US plates/mastering done at Metropolis, which is much superior to the original U.K./EU copy. Great depth and really happy with this pressing.

Aedem
Same problem with my Pressing. I‘m not the Audiophil perosn with a 10K $ setup, but this is just disgusting to be honest. All sides sound blurry and there are many crackles on side 2-4. It was a gift for my Birthday so i didnt exchange it. 1/10 for this pressing but 8,5/10 for this mordern classic. May you better enjoy it on CD or on Tidal.

Gribandis
Even if you get a decent 3rd side... this whole pressing sounds dull and lifeless anyway. Hopefully there is a nice sounding pressing of this?

JOGETIME
I'm experiencing pretty significant pitch issues with this pressing. I know some of the instrumentals are intentionally low-fi but I'm nearly certain my pressing is faulty...

WinDImmortaL
If you have pitch issues with your copy then it is probably off-centered

Madi
Great album but the side 3 of this pressing is ruined in the etching process. That side sounds distorted and is practically unlistenable.

Alister
I've purchased 3 copies of this press now and all 3 have the same problem, side 3 is hideous to listen to. I'm also a bit disappointed with the overall production - this is such a great album, a feeling of dread should build throughout but doesn't quite come across for me on this version. On 'Intervention' with the use of the organ I want to feel like I am there in the church, but maybe this is just my set up that is holding it back.Fantastic album, avoid this version.

Nothing personal
DISC 2 Unlistenable (noise, distortion)....GO back directly to the shop...The US pressing (Merge Records) is very good.https://www.discogs.com/fr/Arcade-Fire-Neon-Bible/release/968765

Bandiri
Excellent pressing, great sound ! I had before the horrible "sonovox Presing" (disc 2 very noise) I returned to the store...https://www.discogs.com/fr/Arcade-Fire-Neon-Bible/release/1022035

Dianalmeena
all the third face is wrong here. Twice bought in amazon Spain, and both with same problem. 1/3 of the vinyl is not audible...

mr.Mine
Correct. One of the most gorgeous songs of the album, My Body is a Cage, is completely ruined on this pressing. Such a pity.

Bolanim
Does ANYBODY have this?

Dori
yup, very disappointing, horrible sibilance during "my body is a cage" and "no cars go"

Wrathmaster
I concur - mine also has a pressing/mastering distortion at end of last last track. 3rd side of vinyl also has infill causing further sound issues.

Moonworm
Word of warning for anyone thinking of buying this version, Ive tried 2 of these (sonovox) pressings and both have had a horrible pressing fault at the end of 'my body is a cage' making it sound very distorted. Just tried a 'city slang' version and it plays fine.

Zieryn
Hi, just want to confirm that the German pressing doesn't have the issues with 'my body is a cage' and 'no cars go'??

Ffrlel
My free download was for lossless files.

VAZGINO
Hmm, hints at greatness in many places but just isn't as good as the first one. It's a shame they moved from introspection (or at least lyrics about the self and people) to more worldly issues. The whole album is very self-important, heavy, and it takes itself too seriously. Where's the fun that Funeral had? Not a lot of it is to be found here. I'm disappointed in this album, but I guess a band would have to lower the bar after an album like Funeral.
