Reissue. Funeral is the debut studio album by Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire, released on September 14, 2004. It was given it's title because several band members had recently lost members of their families. Preliminary recordings for Funeral were made during the course of a week in August 2003 at the Hotel2Tango in Montreal, Quebec, and the recording was completed later that year all in an analogue recording format. The album produced five singles. The most successful, "Rebellion (Lies)", peaked at #19 on the UK Singles Chart. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2005 for Best Alternative Music Album. It received widespread critical acclaim and topped many year-end and decade-end lists.

as everyone else has said, this is an amazing debut album. it will make you laugh, cry, and want to run outside in the snow with everyone in your neighborhood and swing from power lines and jump around on rooftops. its hard to describe this music, its very unique. its unlike most music i've heard. there are a ton of instruments on here and a mix of male/female vocals. great lyrics too. highly recommended!
