No Cars Go

Arcade Fire
Arcade Fire long ago attained the sort of critical mass where anyone who breaks ranks from received wisdom and dares to have a pop at them is rounded up by the taste police and pushed down a very tall flight of stairs indeed. Which is why you probably haven't read anywhere that — whisper it — "Neon Bible" isn't in the same league as its predecessor "Funeral" and, by the same token, "No Cars Go" isn"t a patch on the likes of "Wake Up" and "Rebellion (Lies)". Oops — there, we've said it. If you never see our name in print again then please tell our mother that we love her.
