Until today, I thought that The Arcade Fire were an acquired taste which I had yet (if ever) to acquire. Their much acclaimed first album Funeral has never really done it for me.

But today I listened to their new album Neon Bible and realised that they are, without a doubt, the only band who could score a slightly retro acoustic guitar strummy song for full church organ and glockenspiel.

Then bring in strings and a choir without it sounding remotely like Mistletoe and Wine.

Oh, this album is going to be in my CD player for quite some time I think…
