We asked our readers to submit their own sound bites about Arcade Fire’s debut album, Funeral. Here’s what they had to say, along with our selection of sound bites from established reviewers.
“Enchanting, ghostly and at some points, downright depressing. Arcade Fire do what they do best in Funeral, their best record to date.”
“While falling for the hype back in ’06, after re-evaluation Funeral sounds more lethargic than cathartic.”
“Even in its darkest moments, Funeral exudes an empowering positivity.”
“Funeral captures the agony and even ecstasy of surviving death all around you.“
“Funeral, the band’s follow-up to their revelatory DIY debut, documents a passionate and thoughtful indie-rock band whose perspectives and convictions are bolstered by their everyday lives.”
