From RobertChristgau 05/09/2015 18:24
First you notice that the opener really is kinda gorgeous, with its twin-xylophone-echoed piano flourish and all. Then you isolate Win Butler's sob and fantasize about throttling the twit, an immature impulse unmitigated by the lyrics, which are histrionic even for a guy who's just lost a grandparent (or whoever). But if you keep at it till the next song, which tells the story of his runaway older brother getting bitten by a vampire, you begin to admire his resilience--he's retained a sense of the ridiculous, which is more than you can say of most young twits who sing about losing a grandparent (or whoever). And that's how the album goes--too fond of drama, but aware of its small place in the big world, and usually beautiful. N.B.: if you're considering Montreal, which is certainly my favorite Canadian place, the ex-Texans and -Haitian here want to make clear that it's horribly cold.

90/100 = A-

Opening track is innocent and childhood. You don't want the album to end and reality to kick back in.

My grandmother passed away this morning. This album has been nothing but relatable and reassuring.

2004 was a genre defining year for music. This is linearly channeled; this is hurt, childhood and anguish which Arcade Fire turn into something so brave and empowering that one cannot help but to be moved by the story of childhood and loss that the album revolves around.

The album is celebratory, emotionally rich and life-affirming, and this makes the revolving theme of death as polarized to its nature as possible.

Filled with beautiful songwriting and tracks, music history's biggest post-modern classic is right here, in my opinion.
