The Arcade Fire, a Thriving Throwback

The Garden shows are another conquest for a band that has barely been heard on commercial pop radio stations yet had its previous album, “Neon Bible,” make its debut at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart in 2007. According to Nielsen Soundscan “Neon Bible” has sold more than 439,000 copies in the United States, while the band’s 2004 debut album, “Funeral,” recently passed 504,000 copies — a megahit for an indie-rock band.
