Oh my god. I just got Funeral and it is amazing. Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) is easily my favorite song on this album so far.

But seriously. This album is getting played by me everyday, and that is not something that happens often.

Jesus, you're slightly behind.

But yeah, it's a cool album.

I went to an Arcade Fire show to see one of their openers, Wolf Parade. Though Wolf Parade has a couple really good albums, they blew it live. In a huge way. I was going to leave during arcade fire's set. Instead, I found myself staring wide-eyed, drooling on the ground for the entire length of their set.

Thx for bumping this, one of my new fav bands, although I've yet to hear Neon Bible.

I'd say they rock live just from watching the vids on Youtube.


LOL @ the guy who said 'they're creepy..in a really good way'. WOW. that's weird. I guess naming their album Funeral, and having kind of haunting lyrics, music can make you think that. Their music is upbeat and very down at the same time a la Radiohead, Beck, Bright Eyes.

They could be releasing an album 'sooner than expected' according to the band, hopefully it'll come out this year. You really need to hear Neon Bible, it's just as good as Funeral. Ocean Of Noise and No Cars Go are as memorable as you can get.

I saw them at a festival 2 years ago when they were touring Neon Bible, i was actually slightly disappointed to be honest. I though it would be the greatest thing i'd ever witnessed but there was just something missing, they didn't really connect well with the crowd. It would be better to see them in an arena than an open-air stage i guess.
