personally, i like the music. but i can't stand the guy's voice. if i don't like the singing, it's really hard for me to like the band.

at first, I felt that too (about his voice). It has grown on me though.

His voice has an incredible emotional intensity to it.

To whoever asked what kind of music I'm currently into:

U2, Coldplay, Radiohead, The Killers, Interpol, Oasis, Travis, Kings of Leon (which really grew on me after seeing them twice opening for U2), The Beatles, Pearl Jam, RHCP among others. Hell, I've even been on my "rat pack" kick lately with a lot of Sinatra and dean martin.


It's not like I hate Funeral at all, it's just that it hasn't really grabbed my attention yet--which is why I said it makes good background music. If I hated it I just wouldn't play it. In fact, last night I was drinking and it sounded pretty good. I just really don't like the singers voice. I can't really describe it, because usually the only singers I dislike are boyband, pop princess type singers.

I'll keep listening to it because musically it is pretty interesting...I just love being able to sing along which it's pretty hard to do when I can't understand what he's sayin.

Absolutely fair.



Sometimes people in this forum may come off as harsh to prod a deeper explanation of an opinion, but it's all in good fun.

I must say, this is by far the best album of 2004. (That is when it came out right?) It's just so damn good!

I guess I am always drawn to bands with a unique voice (Radiohead, Coldplay, Talking Heads, U2 duh, etc...) so I was immediately attracted to the singer of this band.

Every song is just gorgeous and well written, and even if the lyrics weren't good (which they are!) I could still listen to this album all day. It's got just enough intensity to keep the balance as well, with songs like Neighborhood #3 and Rebellion (Lies).

I have to say though, the most emotion point on this album is "In the Backseat". That woman's voice is haunting, beautiful, wrenching, thin yet full.

What more can I say, I love this band. I can't wait for them to come back to the U.S.

i just saw arcade fire tonight at the hollywood bowl. if you like this band you MUST see them perform live. they sound AWESOME and fun to watch. band members switch instruments and use random objects (like helmets and mike stands) as percussion...they play real tight. i would SO love to see them opening for U2 during the third leg.

I didn't say that you (ImOuttaControl) must like Funeral, I just was curious because sometimes knowing people tastes you can understand why that person didn't like certain band/album... that's all

My friend can play Power Out quite well on the ukelele. It's hilariously awesome.

I went to see them last night at The Hollywood Bowl. Absolutely brilliant. They obviously have a great time on stage to accompany their Smorgasbord of sounds. I'm looking forward to their next album already.

I know! Jesus, that was a kickass performance. That segue from Power Out to Rebellion was awesome!


Does anyone have any more videos like this?

thanks for the awesome video! power out has never been my favorite, but that's a great performance.

i really really really hope they come to atlanta this fall...i heard they might do a quick US tour before they go back into the studio.
