Very good, but great..... I don't know. I'll keep listening, and see if
That changes. Come to think of it , some of my absolute favs in the past,
I didn't think they were that good at 1st listen or two.
Revised:: ok, I'm a believer after 3 more listens .... Up 10 points !!

You know those moments when someone gets in your car and you think "I'll put this album I love, I want him to tell me who is playing this wonderful music"? Most of the times the result is "sorry, can I turn on the radio?". Well, that's impossible with Funeral, because its sound is too charismatic, too coloured, too three dimensional to be ignored. It's impossible also because everybody knows it, but here where I live I can still play the hipster role

There was a time when the seminal album "Funeral" by Arcade Fire was a sort of anthem for indie music back in the early 2000's. Time has only treated it with more respect. "Rebellion (Lies)", "Wake Up", and of Course "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) could possibly be the three best songs of the new millennium.

This album makes me think sometimes "Oh my god, I'm actually an adult now." And I become very concious of my past, my future and my own humanity.

A masterpiece, to say the least. These guys are easily the best band of the past decade or two, closely followed by Radiohead. In my opinion this is their best album, exceptionally good for a debut album, very few bands nowadays come close to the level of Arcade Fire.

Every Arcade Fire album is flawless in my eyes, yet Funeral still stands above the rest. One of the most beautiful albums I've ever heard.

I can never really decide how I feel about this one, though all things considered there's no denying it's an astounding work of art. The emotion is palpable and blends the sorrow of loss with triumphant optimism - and some a dose of nostalgia - to create something uniquely inspiring.

On the other hand, depending on my mood, I find it's stadium-singalong-bait somewhat obnoxious (though I have no problem with stadium rock), and though this album seems pure the band has since adopted a public persona I can't get behind. Overall, I find consider this a great album and *maybe* a masterpiece, but far removed from top 10 all time albums.

Took me a while to get into it, but then isn't that the mark of a truly great album? How many great albums provide instant gratification?
