For a band that was practically unheard of when this debuted it is amazing how well it was put together. I personally enjoy older music from the 60's and 70's but this band caught my attention as progressive yet grounded with some really good tunes like Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) and Rebellion (Lies). I enjoy The Suburbs much more than this album

This album epitomises youthful abandon. Just so much energy and heart, and it never once feels forced or cheesy.

Close to perfect, if not perfect. It feels so nostalgic and you can really immerse yourself here. Great use of French too.

In many ways I feel the need to rank this album as their best, but its raw, "early days" production really shows. The Suburbs really improves on their sound in so many ways.

That said, I still remember the day I previewed this album in Barnes & Noble's not long after its release and was somehow instantly electrified and drawn in by its brilliance.

One of those very rare beautifully perfect albums. With the way people purchase music nowadays, the cohesive album maybe becoming a dinosaur, but Arcade Fire produces a true gem here. It's simply astounding.
