Plugged-In Takes on Neon Bible

The last time we checked in on Plugged-In, fundamentalist James Dobson’s guide to secular pop culture was warning its readers about the dangers of the Shins. This time, they’re taking on Arcade Fire:

With an ELO, rock-opera vibe and a few Springsteen-esque vocals, Arcade Fire relies heavily on poetic, often biblical imagery that’s wide open to interpretation. While not deeply objectionable, Neon Bible won’t change the world for the better either, mainly because its critical rants throw the baby out with the bath water.

Hard to argue with that!
