December 28, 2011: Intervention by Arcade Fire
- Nominated by KristofferAG.
- Intervention is quite different from much of the other music on the Neon Bible album by Arcade Fire. It was the third single from the album, released on the 28th of December 2006, five years ago. It features some amazing organ play, and really powerful vocals. An immense buildup really sets the mood for the track, which really swells in size when the drums kick in, and later the strings.
