Funeral is one of, if not the greatest debut album ever put out. It truly encapsulates a unique sound that would try and be replicated by future artists who would not be able to touch upon the same emotional strings that funeral tugged on. On top of this, Funeral demonstrates fantastic instrumentation that feels very geo/culturally varried. By doing so, it gives this LP a sound that does not seem to age. The album does not drag on and has perfect track placement. Funeral is a lesson in how I make indie Rock, how to make a debut album, and How to organize and album in general.
Best tracks : neighborhood 1, Crown of Love, Wake Up, Rebellion

Definitive record of the indie era, and as gorgeous and heartfelt as rock music is capable of being.

Adults are messes of anxiety and heartbreak. Funeral wants you to know that. The instrumentals are more beautiful than their twee counterparts, especially when juxtaposed with the album's lo-fi tinged vocals. Splendid.

I like Hospice more. I only compare because of their album titles. I can dig it.

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.
