Funeral is the debut studio album by Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire, released on September 14, 2004 by Merge Records. It was given its title because several band members had recently lost members of their families; Régine Chassagne's grandmother died in June 2003, Win and William Butler's grandfather (swing musician Alvino Rey) in February 2004, and Richard Reed Parry's aunts in April 2004.

Released September 14, 2004. 1. Neighborhood (Tunnels) Lyrics. 2. Neighborhood (Laïka) Lyrics. Where are Brazil and My Buddy featured on this album? They were included on a four track bonus cd packaged with the Japanese release of the album. Producer Arcade Fire. Featuring Alvino Rey Orchestra. Producers Arcade Fire.

And so The Arcade Fire asks the question again, but with a crucial distinction: The pain of Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, the enigmatic husband-and-wife songwriting force behind the band, is not merely metaphorical, nor is it defeatist.

the notion that "the power's out in the heart of man, take it from your heart and put it in your hand. Arcade Fire are not bereft of whimsy. Crown of Love" is like a wedding cake dropped in slow motion, utilizing a Johnny Mandel-style string section and a sweet, soda-pop-stand chorus to provide solace to a jilted lover yearning for a way back into the fold, and "Haiti" relies on a sunny island melody to explore the complexities of Chassagne's mercurial homeland. However, it's the sheer power and scope of cuts like "Wake Up" - featuring.

Funeral is the debut studio album by the Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire, released on September 14, 2004 in North America by Merge Records and on February 28, 2005 in Europe by Rough Trade Records Preliminary recordings for Funeral were made during the course of a week in August 2003 at the Hotel2Ta.

The Arcade Fire are not bereft of whimsy. Crown of Love" is like a wedding cake dropped in slow motion, utilizing a Johnny Mandel-style string section and a sweet, soda-pop stand chorus to provide solace to a jilted lover yearning for a way back into the fold, and "Haiti" relies on a sunny island melody to explore the complexities of Chassagne's mercurial homeland  . Some will call Arcade Fire an overly dramatic band, and point to Funeral as a prime example for good reason. It is a very dramatic album to the point that some will find it pretentious. To me, it's that very human emotion that is woven throughout the album that I love. It's a postmodern take on the human condition and emotion.

Wake Up" sounds like it was written for a revolution. Arcade Fire didn't start one - their songs ape the best bits of Springsteen, U2 and the Talking Heads - they merely sound like it, and in so doing have gotten several folks believing in collectives, Canadians and the power of jams to inspire joy and conviction. This album evokes familial connections, love affairs and the bonds of friendship; if it were a Rorschach drawing you'd say it looked like passion itself. What the band is so exuberant about is simply being a band. Their songs have purpose but.

Reviews:
  • Dondallon
Slightly off-center, compressed digital sound and In The Backseat gets absolutely drowned in distortion. Not the best pressing but serviceable.
  • Ziena
The whole thing sounds like it was pulled from a compressed copy.... there is very little dynamic range. I had hoped a vinyl pressing might open up some new details to me.... sadly not the case.
  • Foginn
The vinyl is deformed and also in "Crow of Love" there is a failure of pressing that affects the sound.
  • Seevinev
simple pressing it doesn't come with lyrics, heavy weight vinyl.
  • Zulkigis
Avoid this pressing. The sound is very flat and dull. It also does not include the Funeral booklet.
  • Dogrel
My copy is warped. It lacks dynamics, but not clics or pops.
  • Nidora
Love Wake Up, and the youtube of them in a band with David Bowie always makes me cry (with a smile)
  • Thiama
My copy was pressed off-center, resulting in a warped sound.
  • Kigabar
My favorite album of all time. 10/10. Love the songs, front to back. I want to say way more, can I edit this later?
  • Tane
OK, so I have the US vinyl in the Rough Trade sleeve...I bought it new in the UK. Does this make me unique or was there a mix up at the shop...?! Am I alone in this universe?
  • Vispel
Sound is dead queit would recommend to anyone that loves this album!
  • Goodman
side B is much quieter than A. do me a favour
  • SadLendy
As great an album this is... the pressing is kind of lifeless and shitty. It's a shame! Same with the first pressing of Neon Bible too.
  • Jonide
Well, I recently read there's a (vinyl) repressing coming on, perhaps that one is better?And since my cd version is having chronic hiccups, I might get myself a vinyl version someday soon…
  • Meri
Wow. Just.. wow... Probably the best vinyl in my entire collection. Absolutely amazing; dead silent all throughout. Hearing it on vinyl is an absolute experience.
  • Natety
This pressing is generally good except theres definitely some inner groove distortion on the last tracks of each side. Pressing: 3.5/5. Music: All time classic/5
  • Owomed
I don't have this particular release, but someone who does might want to check the tracks because I think the order for tracks 3 and 4 is backwards. Une Année Sans Lumière should probably be track 3 and neighborhood #3 should be track 4.
  • Jwalextell
The track order is fixed now, but I think the writing credit is still wrong.
  • Sinredeemer
You’re right. there’s a mistake in the tracklisting above, probably because Neighborhood 3 ( listed as track four on the sleeve, is right to Neighborhood 2 ( listed as track 2) sonwhen you read from left to right, you think that it comes before Une année sans lumière that appears just after, but still is listed as track 3.
  • monotronik
The barcode on my copy is 6 73855 02551 3 as opposed to 0 36172 95551 0 a stated in the info for this pressing.
  • Kardana
Might have a newer reissue, or alternate version? My copy has brown labels rather than blue. Runouts and hype sticker are as pictured.
  • Redfury
Same here. Golden labels rather than blue. Same text etched and stamped as shown in the info. The pressing sounds very nice indeed.
  • Karg
Someone knows what version is better? MRG255 or RTRADLP219? .
  • Blackbeard
Wow. Cant get over how great this pressing is. Beautiful. Loved this album but pretty sure up to this point(mp3 only), I never "heard" it before.
  • Malalrajas
My absolute favorite arcade fire album! Every song is just as good as the last one.
  • Rocksmith
Fuckin' agree !!!!! There are particular qualities in this album that I love , even though "The Subarbs" comes close , with a different sonic envelope in all (y)
  • Doukree
Great album, as always. However this vinyl edition omits the lyrics and credits pull-out that was included with the CD version. On this edition its a gatefold sleeve and the tracks listed on the back, thats it. So hence 3 out of 5 for this edition! A bit of a poor show.
  • Defolosk
Mine did and I bought it back in 2006 so I don't think it's a new addition!Edit: I'm sure you've checked, but it was in the front half of the gatefold - not the one with the record in. So I suppose it's possible to miss it? Not that I'm doubting anyone's detective skills!
  • Goldenfang
Mine didn't include these either, like the above stated. Perhaps new pressings have them?
  • invincible
"No insert on mine. Bought factory sealed."Same story(
