While lots of people (quite prissily) touch on the emotional components of this music I'll say thatI mostly appreciate it's innovative qualities. After Arcade Fire, indie wasn't so much about kooky pop as layered textures, nostalgic/homely (even soft rock) vibes, and a worldly instrumentation.

I can't say I was blown away by it, but the sound of the album is truly fantastic, and probably the best thing about it. Flows very well from song to song.

Great mood and concept. The mixture of the instruments and tone make this one of my favourite.

Emotionally charged anthems that made the album what it is. Beautiful, favorites are Neighborhoods #1 and #3, Wake Up, Rebellion, and Haiti

Beautiful album, it reminds the same approach R.E.M. had with Automatic for the People. Excellent songs and never boring.

I liked this when I was in junior high, but now it just sounds too glittery and clean. It's one of those albums you instantly like on the first listen, but it's just downhill from there. To put it simply: it's just overrated.

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.
