Uncut (p.104) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Their songs strike out at unexpected angles, bringing to mind a morbidly romantic 19th-century Radiohead."

Magnet (p.100) - "[A] compelling debut....FUNERAL deals with grief by obsessing over new relations and future births, decorating each lost leaf in brilliant fall colors."

CMJ (p.38) - "Putting the 'fun' back in FUNERAL, the debut disc from Montreal indie-pop sextet Arcade Fire exhumes instrumentation extinct since third-grade music class and sets them ablaze in anything but a macabre fashion."
