Arcade Fire - Funeral

I just got this yesterday. What a great album. 'Wake Up' caught me off guard. What’s played at the U2 shows is cut short from the original. Good job too because not long after that the song turns into 'You Cant Hurry' Love'. Quite bizarre. I wish I had caught these guys at 'Coachella'. For those of you in Europe they are touring soon. Dates here:

The best CD I have bought in months. This is the band that should have opened this tour.

they're pretty good. i think i would have liked them more if i hadn't downloaded Kasabian the same day, because Kasabian simply blew me away. but Arcade Fire definitely has a good future ahead.

Yea, you're right, sorry I never noticed that before. Some good stuff in there though.

At least this isn't an Oasis or Coldplay thread to look at.

I really like this band, I hope they'll get more recognition over here.

The only song i've heard of theirs is "Wake Up," which I was introduced to at a couple U2 shows in Chicago. It's a great song, although something about the singers voice sort of bugs me.

I think I'll pick up this album next week when I go get the new coldplay and oasis albums

definitely buy Funeral. It is the last album I actually bought *cough* and they are my second favorite band right now.

Hi Lara Mullen, I've gathered from some of your other posts that you don't care for U2 much anymore. That's fine if you feel that way, but I'd ask to you read the thread titled "Ah now i know why miracle drug and sometimes are played together...." over on the General Tour Discussions board. Some fans, like myself, find value in U2's music because we still interpret it as coming from the heart. Maybe I've been duped, but just because Bono is a multi-millionaire doesn't mean that he can't communicate to his audience in a genuine way. If you don't see it that way, that's ok, it's your prerogative.

Anyway, I find the Arcade Fire cd very cool.

Hmm, did I mention not liking U2 here?

P.s. I have never said I no longer enjoy U2's music, I'm just not fussed on HTDAAB.

Thanks for your input though.

Funeral is miles ahead of HTDAAB. The Arcade Fire are really amazing, and I've heard that they're live performances blow people away.

Get the album!

I'm hoping that they open when U2 returns to the States.

It's a great album.

Lara, I guess I was mistaken. There are alot of members here that don't like ATYCLB and/or HTDAAB, that's not uncommon at all. The posts that I disagree with the most are those that say the new music lacks soul and heart. I know it's not as creative, but for me, it's just as genuine. Anyway, sorry I called you out!
