I have no idea why it took me so long to get into Arcade Fire. They are so amazing and this is by far their best album. That is saying a lot having listened to the rest of their discography.

Deserves all the acclaim it's gotten, and then some. It took a couple of listens for this one to grow on me, but every track is brilliant.

Best tracks: Neighborhood 3, Rebellion (Lies), Wake Up, Neighborhood 1, Crown of Love

I'm not really sure what makes this album so beutiful, but from the moment Neighborhood #1 started playing I was engaged.It was such a perfect way to start an album, and the rest of it really delivered. Simple melodies, simple progessions, simple lyrics, there is not a single element that stands out on its own,(maybe Regine Chassagne vocals at the end), just a big bunch of people trying to play together and making some heartfelt songs, and the result was one of the most beutiful records I will ever listen to.

First listen: overrated, I didn't see variety of compositions and sounds. Lets see at the second listen... Maybe the people rating this 100 listened to it like 10 times or more... So lets see if a get what is about.

This is such a beautiful album. I don't think there's much more you could ask of a band for their debut album. It has most of Arcade Fire's best songs, and there's not a single song I would skip on here.
Best tracks: Neighbourhood #1, Wake Up, Crown of Love, Rebellion
Worst track: Haiti

From callinmclinden 08/11/2015 11:34
Nice enough and had some really good moments but really not that great, too many boring tracks to make it a truly "great" album, i dunno, maybe I'm missing something but i really don't get the massive appeal and acclaim with this album. I understand the emotion portrayed but I don't believe it's done in a particularly interesting way. Don't get me wrong it's not bad and I did find myself enjoying myself on a fair few tracks and some bits were impressive and immersive but overall it's nothing spectacular and I felt shorthanded when the album had finished.
