I grew up with the songs off this album on rage of a Saturday morning, just like a few others. I love everything about this album, it's so close to being a 10!

I used to look at this album and tell myself, that it was made by a bunch of hipsters for a bunch of hipsters, then I listened to it a few times. Feels good, being a hipster, feels good.

Outstanding album. Personally I find that the album does not really pick up until Crown of Love.

There are few albums, if any, that I connect with on such a personal level. The themes and motifs resonate so deep within me. As a Canadian, the motif of snow and storms providing loneliness and fear are so real. There are some days where we were stuck at home for days. The snow outside was too strong for us to face. The air bit at us and the storms kept us inside. As a result, we were trapped in our homes. This always made me feel weak and lonely, as I wasn't strong enough to face the winter and see my friends. Funeral is an album about those storms, and the ways in which we face them. When the storm locks us inside, we can choose to hide and cower, or we can face them with dignity and strength in order to grow personally.

Arcade Fire dare us to fight back against the storms of life, and to face them with resilience. When we feel most afraid or vulnerable is when we should fight the powers of nature that are beyond our control. The most prominent motif used here is death. Arcade Fire lost many people near and dear to them during this season, and it shows in the music. After a long fight in the storm, this album ends on a beautiful and emotional note with "In The Backseat". Sometimes, life is too strong for us to handle, and all we can do it sit in the backseat and let life take us for a ride. In the end, life won't always be a happy experience, but every storm can be faced with dignity.

There is something about this album, especially the opening track, that gives me a sense of nostalgia, even though I am new to the band. It is rare for an album or any piece of media to generate this feeling.
