I enjoy the opposite. To each their own.

I vehemently hope that your opinion on the album is not a consequence of the song having been used on the Vertigo Tour. If that's the case, then it would be disappointing.

It is sometimes difficult to swallow pills, but when it comes to music you shouldn't need U2 sugar to swallow new medicine.

You're not patronising.

Upon reflection, a less substantial one-liner attempting to demean ImOuttaControl would have been more appropriate and respectful. In the interest of encouraging an engaging discussion and a sharing of musical opinions, it would have been damned groundbreaking of me to use thoughtless brevity in our sea of expanded and insightful replies.

A Revelation!

Arcade Fire are amazing.

Haiti, Une Annee Sans Lumier, Rebellion (Lies), Power Out, EVERY OTHER SONG ON THE ALBUM are all amazing.

I haven't been as impressed with an album since I got into Radiohead Years ago, or U2 before them.

I noticed someones post on Interpol - antics earlier too.. agree.. it's an amazing album, but not as multi-dimensional as this one.

And they are Canadian! I sure hope they come to Ottawa at some point in the future.

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
