They used to actually be a phenomenal band and Funeral is all the proof you need. Full of gang chants and guitar twitches, big band fever and Springsteen suburbia, the Arcade Fire made a hopeful and triumphant rock record that fully deserved to be loud. With a handful of indie rock's best tunes on it, it traversed a whole lot of death and even a bit of romance -- "Crown of Love" is still their best, most heartfelt moment.

9/10 Brian Staff review, 29 November 2006
So now to the bands of today that actually matter. Cos they're good, rise way above the hype & release thought provoking, original music. Arcade Fire are Rough Trade's latest bagging & with immediate effect they make me think of The Walkmen. FB says The Waterboys but his hearing is tuned into a rusty wireless in an underground bunker in Shitflap, Nowheresville. There's dozens of bands you could namecheck but I'll just say this Montreal 5 piece are a shining beacon of hope in today's cannibalistic desperate musical climate. 'Funeral' is a lovingly packaged collection of great rock songs Grand, stirring, fascinating, moving & incredibly adept & accomplished. 10 tracks on CD & G/Fold vinyl.

10/10 Jack Customer review, 10th January 2015

Arcade Fire's influential 'Funeral' is the landmark when it comes to a greater widespread acceptance of indie rock. From the front half's heartfelt & personal concept to the latter half's captivating diversity, the affecting and ultimately inspiring lyrical symbolism makes it an exquisite and compelling listen. The effortlessly layered melodies emanating from a multitude of instruments and vocal techniques are deceptively catchy, while the ambitiously grand and cinematic crescendos are extremely memorable. That one of the best albums of the decade turned out to be a debut LP is a phenomenal accomplishment. Recommended Tracks: Crown of Love, Wake Up, Power Out, Rebellion (Lies) and Laika.
