The Music Years - 2007

The following albums were released in 2007 and have been reviewed thanks to the following legal music sites:


Arcade Fire - Neon Bible - 5.5

Black Mirror / Keep the Car Running / Neon Bible / Intervention / Black Wave - Bad Vibrations / Ocean of Noise / The Well and the Lighthouse / (Antichrist Television Blues) / Windowsill / No Cars Go / My Body Is a Cage

Considerable merit in this album as well, but there seems to be a spark missing after Funeral. The band seem to be more aligned to rock n roll although it's still difficult to categorise them and there are plenty of anthemic work here including a huge organ solo introduction on Intervention that is reminiscent of Saint Saens. I also have a sneaking regard for the single No Cars Go. Sadly this album falls just short of the very high standards set by Funeral.
