ARCADE FIRE "FUNERAL" APPRECIATION

I got a serious late pass on this record because, well, I don't listen to a lot of rock records and it takes years before I discover the great records that rock has to offer, but this has got to be one of the most beautiful modern rock records I've ever heard. The melodies, the instrumentation...everything is in the right place. It's stunning. Go to your local Hastings and pick up this record. You'll smile, laugh, sing along, sob and dance your col' ass off. I'm gonna go over the top (it doesn't take much) and say this record restored my faith in today's rock music.

Amen to THAT - Arcade Fire rocks. All about someone making weird liner notes, too.

Hey, your blog came highly recommended from my biatch Sarah. I'll have to agree that Arcade Fire freakin' rocks! Glad to know you have kickass taste in music.

welcome, sassy. i wouldn't judge my taste however too quickly. my lovely wife would contend that i have the worst taste in music.

ah yes, but your lovely wife likes Celine.........
sorry Erin.
You know I hold you in the highest regard aside from your favoritism of the Diva that is "CELINE".
