Editorial Reviews

2012 sophomore album from the Provo, Utah-based Alt-Rock band. The follow-up to the album Habits, Picture Show features the single 'Everybody Talks'. Like their name, Neon Trees are a combination of slick pop hooks and sturdy organic rock, both melodic and hard-hitting, their anthems of adolescent angst, longing, love lost and found, delivered with the kind of heart-on-the-sleeve passion that only comes from hard work and commitment.

Neon Trees' first album, Habits, is terrific from top to bottom; it's only shortcoming is its scant number of tracks. If you liked Habits absolutely get Picture Show Deluxe Edition. It is an embarrassment of riches with 14 songs.

Overall song quality: Almost every song on the album is good to outstanding, including and especially the bonus tracks on the deluxe edition. Getting the regular version of the album and missing out on three gems would be foolish. No need to write a discourse on each song. They are all different and terrific*.

Musical Style: The arrangements are more layered and complicated than the crisp, clean songs on Habits. I don't necessarily prefer one style over the other but it is the most significant difference between the two albums. Listen to them back to back and it's striking.

As they did on Habits, they pulled off an amazing creative feat by capturing the essence of the 1980's alternative rock style ("modern rock" in 1980's parlance) without just being a rip off. Some will disparagingly say they're "derivative" but I say they have continued to develop a musical style that was abandoned too soon. Sure you can hear shades of Depeche Mode, early U2, Duran Duran, Erasure, etc but honestly I like Neon Trees' songs better than most of the material from the era. NT songs are simply constructed better than a lot of the inspired material, from writing to arranging to production. That's what is supposed to happen in any discipline whether it's academia, athletics or the arts - you build on what your predecessors did.

Slam dunk five star album.

*My only critiques: the first single, Everybody Talks is perfectly fine but feels like the obligatory follow up to Animal, just not quite as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Picture Show-Neon Trees April 18, 2012
By Wayne
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Neon Trees since their freshman release of Habits, the poppy album that got them attention, especially with the single "Animals".
While Picture Show does by no means drift from their Indie Rock sound, Picture Show does provides some very interesting views into the band's influences and experimentation. Bass riffs/solos are amidst every song on this album--a welcome feature of the indie rock genre--along with Tyler Glenn's powerful vocals. I by no means was let down by this album, but honestly, if you are expecting a similar album to Habits, stick with a few songs from this CD, such as "Everybody Talks", "Mad Love", "Lessons in Love", and possibly "Weekend". If you are a little adventurous into the band's sound, check out the rest of the album, especially the deluxe edition. The bonus songs are a must have for this album. I cannot wait for their third album.

I love this CD! I'm not your usual Neon Trees fan; I'm a grandma (although not typical). I like discovering new (to me) bands. Looking forward to more!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Record Of 2012 July 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I rarely review records on Amazon, but if this review leads just one person to discover Picture Show, it will have been worth it. My preferred genres of music are alternative and pop, and it's becoming more and more difficult to find artists that hit that sweet spot right in the middle of the two. But Neon Trees does it brilliantly, and Picture Show is even better than their solid debut, Habits. Nearly every song here hits its mark (the mediocre Hooray For Hollywood being the one exception), leaving an indelible mark on the listener that demands he or she listen again. And again. I've been spinning this thing non-stop since it came out and I imagine that won't stop anytime soon.

This is one of those rare cases in which the deluxe version is worth seeking out, and newer versions include a pretty stellar cover of The Human League's "Don't You Want Me." If you like alternative music but aren't afraid of a good hook, or are a pop fan looking for something more, this is your album. Despite their considerable success, I can't fathom why Neon Trees isn't the biggest band in the world yet. But they will be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant album May 6, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It was impossible to to know just how good this album was gonna be from their radio songs. I was aware of "Animal" from their last album, and "Everybody Talks" from Picture Show; I liked those songs, but it wasn't enough to make me interested in the rest of their catalog. I bought this on a whim and it blew me away. "Everybody Talks" might be the worst song on this album, and as I said I like that song. It reminds me of The Killers' Hot Fuss; not that it really sounds like The Killers, but in the way that this is a very well-done alternative/pop album where every song sounds great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sort of deja vu April 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this on the strength of "Everybody Talks", which I really like, and enjoy hearing on the radio. Funny how I've been listening to it for months on an alternative radio station and now it's finally showing up on other, more mainstream stations--good for Neon Trees!

After having listened to the whole disc, I can't help feeling as though I've heard this music (not the songs per se) before. Then it hit me--it really reminds me of some of the stuff I listened to in the '80s, only with a more modern take. I don't bash the '80s--it's really "my generation", and it's actually kind of cool to get that vibe again.

Neon Trees are great! Love the upbeat music and quirky lyrics. So glad I got this album. It's hard to find an album that you like more than one song on it.
