5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Pleasure, 5 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Funeral (Audio CD)
I love music. I love new music, but new music I love is hard to find. Antony and the Johnsons 'I Am a Bird Now' and Kanye West's 'College Dropout' have been the only new-ish releases to blow my mind (I'm looking forward to Kanye's new one). Finding something musically beautiful, conceptually whole and emotionally mature, music to fulfil my every need, is a rare thing indeed. Then one day came Arcade Fire...
'Funeral' is a deeply-charged, whirling, emotional explosion. There are moments of gut wrenching sadness and boundless joy. Ghostly backing, sparkling piano, slicing guitars, roar tribal disco-style drumming and the desperate plea of the vocals all make up these compelling, vivid, fantastical snapshots.
I feel sure it's an album you will keep coming back to in years to come.
