20. Jun. 2008, 14:31 von jonatas_froesO Arcade Fire é uma dessas bandas indie que ninguem põe fé, a crítica detona e na primeira audição parece ser igual a todas as outras, imitando Oasis e Belle and Sebastian. Porém, esse casal canadense vai muito além, compondo canções serenas incrementadas com boas letras e uma enorme quantidade de instrumentos diferenciados, como harpas e cítaras.
O album Neon Bible já é o segundo da banda, aclamado pela crítica mundial e citado como um dos melhores discos do século.

29. Feb. 2008, 21:06 von marsheeWell, as chucknorris2 has been pressurizing me to write a review of The Kissaway Trail concert on Wednesday 20 February, and I feel the need to put off my homework of 7 German essays, I thought I might as well oblige and write a review, so here goes:
The concert was in a small, beautiful venue called Bush Hall in Shepherd's Bush. We (chucknorris2, another friend and I) arrived relatively early, just when the doors opened and so we got to see he hall empty and how nice it really was. They even had a grand piano in the corner which I was sorely tempted to go and play.
Anyway, enough about the venue, and on to the music. The first support band, The Burning Leaves, were nice to begin with, but they were boring. the music wasn't bad, but not engaging, and their performance was terrible, something akin to a band in a shopping centre who just doggedly go on playing though nobody notices them. a shame really!
The next band, Red Light Company…

5. Feb. 2008, 6:30 von bound2rambleArcade Fire 23rd January, 2008.
There's a reason why Arcade Fire is hailed by many as the best live act of today. That reason, I found out a couple of weeks ago, is because they are.
Spoon, whom many people were there to see as much as Arcade Fire, played a one hour set, and a damn good one at that. They're an extremely talented band, it was a very tight performance, they played very well. I do love it when we have excellent luck with support bands at gigs. Although, they were all pretty much co-headliners. Spoon were really great, I wouldn't mind at all seeing them again.
Arcade Fire, however, blew the entire audience away. A blues backing track welcomed them onto the stage with an audience filled with applause, anticipation, and excitement. I'd say that with the band having such excellent live reviews, everyone had quite high expectations of this show. My goodness, did they deliver. The full ten-piece touring band walked onto the stage, Win gave a little hello, and they burst straight into Wake Up…
31. Dez. 2007, 14:15 von miguel8801. Radiohead - In Rainbows
The most interesting side of In Rainbows might not be its distribution, but Radiohead's cleverness to come up with an incredible album that is capable of mixing the sound of their previous albums and yet still not end up sounding like something we've already heard before.
From the Kid A-style 15 Step to Videotape, the album contains some of Thom Yorke's finest songwriting to date, but here's a five-piece band's work which result is instrumentally and stylistically diverse with no waste on it.
In Rainbows represents the actual sound of a multifaceted band that's been creating beautiful music over the last 10 years. And the bonus disc is a pleasant collection of equally great songs, maybe the perfect ending for another journey Radiohead invite us to join them to, and it's hard to say no to that invitation.

18. Nov. 2007, 14:00 von Steveweiser357Sat 17 Nov – The Arcade Fire, Clinic, Wild Light
My second Arcade Fire show of the year, and they were amazing yet again. Bit of a shame that I can't say the same about Alexandra Palace. It's a very long walk up hill - Win even complained about it - the only working toilets were in the main hall, with big queues, and there was this stupid token system to get drinks, with people still queuing for tokens when the band came on. I could maybe understand £3.50 for a pint, but £1.75 for a can of Coke? C'mon. And the shuttle bus back down after the gig was a shambles. The security staff lost control of the fans, and it took me half an hour to get onto a bus. Can't say I'll be going back there again, even if that means that their next London show is at Wembley Arena, which some will see as a sell-out.
As for the gig, a great atmosphere, they did a couple of covers, they did Neighborhood #2 (Laika), Neighborhood #3 (Power Out) and (Antichrist Television Blues), which they didn't do when I saw them in Brixton. …
