With their beautiful lyrics and haunting melodies, this band truley is one of a kind. You can't help listening to them and ending up contented, they are original, beautiful, and Funeral is one of the finest albums I've heard in a long while.
I was listening to Arcade Fire the other day, and I thought "Wow, my taste in music is awesome".

A fine Indie-Rock band so bautiful and gut-wrenching it makes Radiohead almost look at posers.

A Post-Rock Band with a fuckload of reverb on each instrument.

Getting fired because of overall slacking done in a way only the hip kids can do. Or browsing pitchfork and tweeting about post-modernism while at work.
"I spent too much time on youtube at work streaming coachella yesterday, so I got Arcade Fired".

A 5-member band originating from Montreal, Quebec. Known for their lurid beats and definitive sound, they sound a lot like early David Bowie. With two main vocalists, a guitarist, a drummer, a violinist, a bass player and who knows what else, we expect promising things from these modern day troubadors. Their album Funeral is a tribute to growing out of childhood, the hopes and dreams, young love, and rebellion we accosiate with growing up.

Montreal band that writes some really beautiful lyrics and songs that are so beautiful and elegiac that they stick in your head for weeks at a time. Live performances can only be described by awesome, mind-blowingly energetic, heart-breakingly moving.
The Arcade Fire is one of the best bands I've heard in years.
