Funeral by Arcade Fire

За албумот: Првиот албум на канадскиот инди-рок бенд Arcade Fire, издаден на 14 септември 2004 од Merge Records. Номиниран за Греми во 2005 во категоријата Best Alternative Album, број 1 албум на 2004 според многу критичари, според некои албумот директно влегува во најдобрите албуми на декадава. Како што кажува и самиот наслов, албумот е пред се за смртта но и општо за загуба на важните работи во текот на сечиј живот и за несопирливиот тек на времето. Албумот има многу оркестрални елементи со голема употреба на жичани инструменти. И покрај тоа, жанровски сепак се држи во инди-рок категоријата.


An emotionally wracked masterpiece, drawing on immaculate influences like the Pixies and Talking Heads while sounding distinctly original.

Encompassing chamber pop melodies, angular art-rock, lavish orchestration and post-punk vocals, its sheer sonic size and ambition goes some way towards justifying the amount of gushing praise that’s been heaped upon this album since its September release on Merge last year. The fact that the music is so paradoxically life-affirming and euphoric makes it much easier to write, what now feel like, trite hyperboles.

So long as we’re unable or unwilling to fully recognize the healing aspect of embracing honest emotion in popular music, we will always approach the sincerity of an album like Funeral from a clinical distance. Still, that it’s so easy to embrace this album’s operatic proclamation of love and redemption speaks to the scope of The Arcade Fire’s vision.

For those of us who still believe in music’s power to redeem, ‘Funeral’ feels like detox, the most cathartic album of the year. [5 Mar 2005, p.49]

Funeral aches with elegiac intensity.
Rolling Stone

Butler sings like Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood used to play, like a lion-tamer whose whip grows shorter with each and every lash. He can barely contain himself, and when he lets loose it’s both melodic and primal, like Berlin-era Bowie or British Sea Power.

IMHO: Налудничаво, убаво и неверојатно заразно. На прва не толку лесно за слушање поради многу чудниот звук, речиси експериментален и поради уште почуднипт вокал. Но откако еднаш ќе се навлезе во албумот, нема враќање назад. Текстовите се прекрасни, цели приказни, и тоа не какви било приказни, мрачни, тешки, не сосема нормални…….за среќа на крај секогаш со доза на оптимизам.

“And if the snow buries my,
my neighborhood.
And if my parents are crying
then I’ll dig a tunnel
from my window to yours,
yeah a tunnel from my window to yours.
You climb out the chimney
and meet me in the middle,
the middle of the town.
And since there’s no one else around,
we let our hair grow long
and forget all we used to know,
then our skin gets thicker
from living out in the snow.”

” All the neighbors are startin’ up a fire,
burning all the old folks the witches and the liars.
My eyes are covered by the hands of my unborn kids,
but my heart keeps watchin’
through the skin of my eyelids. “

” If the children don’t grow up,
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.
We’re just a million little god’s causin rain storms turnin’ every good thing to
