Arcade Fire Funeral US Import album.

Having experienced the sudden and tragic deaths of family members since the bands' conception, Arcade Fire's debut album 'Funeral' was spawned from the frustration of unexpressed emotions and sentiments, finding a voice through these eclectic Montréal-based multi-instrumentalists.
In what is a stunning, stately mixture of euphoric catharsis and theatricality, crafted out of the those unforeseeable forces of death, tragedy, isolation and fear, 'Funeral' is perhaps one of the most talked about debuts so far this year. From the wavering vocal delivery of 'Tunnels', with its engaging crescendo of pianos and elated guitars, to the broody drum precursor of the accordion-blessed greatness that is new single 'Laika' to the momentum of life-affirming pop masterpiece 'Rebellion (Lies)', Arcade Fire are consistently challenging our ears to new commanding sounds of traditionalism paired with angular art-rock celebration.
Pure splendour is delivered elsewhere in the form of 'Power Out', with its incessant pop-beat, shimmering piano, rock-guitar onslaught and vociferous sentiments of battling a world of darkness and uncertainty, and also on album closer 'In The Backseat' where its sheer operatic gentility is enough to remind us of the comprehensive magnitude we have just experienced and make us want to immerse ourselves once again. A modern work of genius.
"One of this year's best already, by a mile. 5/5" The Guardian
