Am I the only one who doesn't get this band? I don't know it just falls a little flat. I mean I like some of it. But the universal appeal hear is crazy. The top ten of all time? I dont think so!

I think if you cannot connect to this album on the grand emotional level that it aims for, you're not going to get as much out of it as if you did. Must have been the case for me, because while I don't have negative feelings toward Funeral, I just feel that I'm never prepared to immerse myself in this album's depth. That's all. There are great songs here and weirdly enough my favorite track is the one I think has the least emotion in it, which is Haiti.

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.
