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.

Good album, but it's absolutely laughable that this is above To Pimp A Butterfly, good kid m.A.A.d city, and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy for this site's album of the decade.

From Joshuatyler 07/04/2018 03:34
The whole album just gives me the feels. Not the specific, remember-where-you-were-when-you-first-heard-this feels, but in a much broader sense: the neighboring houses where your best friend lived, those two brothers you haven’t seen in years you used to play baseball with, the girl whose attention you never could obtain - what would she think of you now?

It’s these feelings that a decade or more of life haven’t managed to unearth, but a 60 minute album fondly repositions them with the benefit of hindsight.

I can’t recall an album ever bringing out such fondness, such a punctuation mark of my youth while looking to the future with a smile.

This album is just absolutley fantastic. Such emotional power, for me anyway, and some absolute class tunes on here. Maybe not their best one but certainly close! If you haven't already, listen to this album!

I don't think there are really any amazing songs on this album. That being said, there are a lot of good songs and I really enjoy it as a whole. It's very consistent and the switches between songs are done very nicely. Also love the outro.
