I've listened to this album a few times... and I still consider it to be mediocre.

If Funeral started 2000s Indie rock, The Suburbs finished it

Coming back to this album after years and years of it sitting in my subconscious, there is no reason for it be as high as it is with all the subsequent releases of the 2010s. Although this is a good album, it is not groundbreaking, innovative, or culturally significant such as Good Kid MAAD City or To Pimp a Butterfly or My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. So BEA members, get off your high horses of rock ruling this decade and succumb to the epiphany that hip hop rules the 2010s

I was really thrilled after hearing the first two tracks, and then... Well, the rest wasn't at the level.

Wonderful album, completely devoted to its theme. Almost all tracks are great to listen to. The only negative point may be, that sometimes the production doesn‘t seem to be as perfect as it could be, but somehow on „Empty Room“ I liked it very much, „Half Light II“ though couldn‘t quite overwin me.
I think that „Funeral“ is overall the better album, it is more on point, more diverse in sound and conquered my heart very fast. „The Suburbs“ needed some time for me to really appreciate it. It‘s still a fantastic album.

This album is amazing. Arcade Fire really captured feelings of lost youth in this album.

Good, but for the most time actually quite repetitive. I believe that first and final track are ones of the best songs in the history, so for this reason it is good album.
