Neon Bible (оригинал Arcade Fire). Неоновая Библия (перевод tiny lies из Москвы). Vial of hope and a vial of pain. On every boy and every girl singing. На каждого мальчика и девочку, которые пели: It's the Neon Bible, the Neon Bible. Это Неоновая Библия, Неоновая Библия. Not much chance for survival. Не слишком надейся выжить, If the Neon Bible is right. Если Неоновая Библия права. Take the poison of your age.

Released March 5, 2007. Neon Bible Tracklist. Arcade Fire followed up their breakthrough 2004 debut with Neon Bible, a set of songs that pushed the dour, bombastic sound to a darker, more baroque extreme. Though many of the tracks, such as Intervention and Black Wave/Bad Vibrations, are fixated on a noble, Job-like suffering, the group never shy away from cathartic crescendos, with the Springsteen-esque Keep the Car Running and the charging No Cars Go reaching the most ecstatic heights of their career to date. On December 15th, 2006 the band started to send out ‘spam’ e-mails teasing the album title
Arcade Fire – Neon Bible. Label: Merge Records – MRG285. Format: CD, Album, Cardboard Slipcase. Orchestra and Choir Sessions recorded at the Hungarian National Radio Studios, Budapest. The name Neon Bible, from a novel by John Kennedy Toole, is used with permission of Grove Press, Inc. c/o Macintosh & Otis Inc. Some copies have got a sticker on the front side of the slipcase with the names of the band and the album.
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". These songs don't erupt, but gradually crescendo and intensify. Like many indie artists, the Arcade Fire work best in the album format, and Neon Bible runs on a different- and in some ways more finely tuned- mechanical system than its predecessor.
As the best of follow-ups go, Neon Bible is recognizably Arcade Fire, even a similar record, musically, but make no mistake, it is a very different record than Funeral. On a melodic level, there are similarities. Black Mirror treads the same atmospheric and layered, yet hard-driving rock sound of Neighborhood and Rebellion (Lies), as does the soaring The Well and the Lighthouse. Black Mirror opens the album with the energy and vigor of Funeral‘s most rocking tracks, yet sounding slightly darker with ascending piano and Win Butler’s own conflicted lyrics, show me something that isn’t mine/ but mine is the only kind that I relate to. On the quieter, brief title track, a religious cynicism permeates, Butler whispering Oh God well look at you now/ well you lost him but you don’t know how.
