This has to be one of the best albums of 2004. The musical talent of this group is far and away some of the most impressive to come out of Canada in the last few years. Gone finally are the tired days of Our Lady Peace and Default. Goodbye awful late-90s rock groups. Hello new-age brilliance. Rock music is alive again, and it's bands like the Arcade Fire that give listeners hope for a resurgence in beautiful lyrics and cascading melodies. 'Funeral' is the best album I've heard since Bloc Party's 'Silent Alarm', and anyone with any sort of taste should own this album.
What is also great about the Arcade Fire is that, along with bands like Stars, Montreal is becomming a hub for great music. Without sounding too terribly soppy, bands like the Arcade Fire reflect their roots, and finally Montreal is cool again! And this coming from a Calgarian.
Please support great Canadian music. Buy this album!

If you remotely like indie rock or Arcade Fire, this is an absolute must have. Unbelievable track list, sounds better than it's digital counterpart. The vinyl case and cover are simply beautiful as well. BUY THIS.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Jan. 1 2006
Format: Audio CD
Every now and then, a truly original, groundbreaking band surfaces amid all the bland pop and rock. Montreal's Arcade Fire is one such band. In their glorious full-length debut "Funeral," Arcade Fire spins elaborate art-rock full of passion and atmosphere.

Rather than trying to hook you the way most songs do, Arcade Fire builds up their songs to a musical (and emotional) crescendo. The album opens on a four-song cycle called "Neighborhood," which deal with daydreams, neglect, fighting in a family, and just sitting around waiting for life to happen to you. All four things are pretty clearly considered disastrous -- don't waste time, make life happen!

Certainly that get-off-your-bum-and-make-things-happen attitude carries over to the wild "Wake Up," a howling anthem with an ever-evolving beat, and the well-named "Rebellion," where Win sings, ""Sleeping is giving in/no matter what the time is/Sleeping is giving in/so lift those heavy eyelids." You'll be emotionally exhausted when it reaches the wrenching finale, "In the Back Seat." And it does all this while making you dance too.

Most pop or rock songs are focused on "He/she left me/cheated on me and I'm miserable" or "I'm so in love." Don't expect anything so obvious from the Arcade Fire. These are about living life in general, not just one part of it. Why's it called "Funeral"? Partly the fear of dying without having accomplished something.

Musically, it will make your head spin. There's a blend of post-punk, rock, art-rock, pop, folk, classical, and much more -- like a punkier version of Neutral Milk Hotel or Modest Mouse. Woven together are xylophone, shimmering strings, swirling keyboard, piano, violins, and accordians.

Undeniably the best album of 2004. I picked up the CD in September and 6 months later I'm still blasting it on a near-daily basis. Emotionally sincere, heartrending, almost transcendent. Be sure to check them out in concert -- they're even better live.

Its always a good feeling to buy an album on a whim, and to discover that it is one of the most amazing recordings of 2004.
Not only is Arcade Fires "Funeral" a genre defying masterpiece, its also pleasing on every level to see a band push aside boundaries and do the impossible, write a totally original album !
Eerie vocals, tinkering bells and whimsical sound effects make for a beautiful and haunting album from start to end.
