    this weekend i gave all of arcade fires albums including the suburbs a good honest non interrupted listen.

    when i was done i sat there thinking jeez this band does absolutely nothing for me now, it did nothing for me 3 years ago, it just does nothing for me.

    what makes a band like radiohead great is that each one of their songs has a simple melodic anchor that then they wrap all this ambient phrasing around, capture it all with effortless production that never sounds overproduced, and drips with honesty and emotion (even when its english wank). arcade fire never does this - they never anchor their songs in anything even resembling a hook. even tool - the pretentious math metal acid fiends understand that music that is intended to be listened to by a big audience must have hooks. arcade fire doesn't bring the hooks.

    arcade fire's emotions don't sound emotional to me. they sound like archetypal hispter sounds to me. they aren't anchored in anything interesting and bold. they dance around their emotions, they don't ever seem to make a point. that seems to be the hallmark of (and why i can't stand) indie hipster bullshit music - its either understated when it should be embracing the emotion full on or completely fucking over the top about pathetic mindless bullshit

    The first time I listened to Funeral it did nothing for me. In fact, up until about a year and half ago, I only liked a handful of Arcade Fire songs. Then one sunny day, I was on the bus and for some reason my head went "I want to give Funeral another spin." From the second "Neighbourhood #1" started, something clicked and I "got it." From that moment on I considered myself a fan.

    yo that is basically the equivalent of farmers learning to love the smell of pigshit after being around it long enough.

    you are putting pigshit in your ears dude!

    This was my experience as well. A slow gradual build. In 2005-early 2007 I only liked about 4 songs on Funeral. When Neon Bible came out, Funeral finally hit me and in a way I that's very deep and personal. I can say this about other bands I end up loving for years and years like The National, Wilco, NIN etc. etc. Some of their works took a long time to digest but man when they hit, the payoff is gold and it's the stuff I can now listen to for eons on repeat. I never got into much of Neon bible and haven't had that moment with it yet but I liked The Suburbs from the first listen and I think that has a bit to do with the better production quality and actually being able to hear everything Win is saying clearly. For some reason that was a big obstacle for me on Funeral. Then when I finally read the lyrics while listening it would start to click more.

    definitely. Tool and Radiohead are the most interesting rock acts around
