This album has it's merits, It is definitely well arramged and well composed all-along, but still, this album don't reach me in any way. I guess i'm out of luck, cause this feels like an album that I should like, but I much prefer "The Suburbs" over this.

Okay now, I gave this album a third listen, and still cant understand why is this in top 10, sorry... For me just an avarage pop album and I would really consider for instance The Strokes Is This It or The Muse Absolution much more interesting albums. I dont know... maybe I will give it a few more listens...

This is probably the best debut LP I've ever heard in my entire life. I've never heard an album with so much spirit, and passion than this album. For me, Arcade Fire's best songs mostly come from this album, but other than 'Everything Now', what came after this is still very good, but I felt like nothing they ever did came close to topping this. It's so consistent, and (like previously mentioned) passionate, and just so emotional. Neighborhood #1 and #3, Crown of Love, Wake Up, Rebellion, are just soooo good, and the rest of the songs feel at home with the album too. It's a huge pioneer for indie rock, and I'm glad Arcade Fire's still going on... But I didn't like everything now, it was dumb and poopy. The End

Honestly this and the Suburbs are 2 of the few modern albums I would consider a classic. Its so impressive a modern day band can make music this good.

Arcade Fire just performed this album all the way through for the first time ever at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, CA. It was mind blowing.

Only Arcade Fire album that is somewhat enjoyable. The vocals are the most interesting part for sure. However, they are a facsimile of Wayne Coyne’s vocals on The Soft Bulletin, which are a facsimile of Roger Waters’ vocals on The Wall, which are a facsimile of Carl Wilson’s vocals on Wild Honey.

This album is incredible. Arcade Fire have produced one of, if not THE greatest album in the history of music. The melodies are beautiful and the lyrics are a gift to music. It is a wonderful album all the way through.
