Now thats a band worth mentioning.
Its also a band with 7 members, that should give you a little idea of the sound-range we are talking here. Not only do they have an insane amount of instruments in each song, they all know how to play each of them and they create a perfect harmony between them. I think the first song I heard of Arcade Fire was Rebellion which is a great upbeat song in itself, but its even better if you listen to it with the previous one Haiti (the song ends with the beginning of Rebellion).
Actually just listen to their whole album Funeral, its a beautiful musical piece. Their second album Neon Bible keeps that great original sound, and adds a little Religion questioning to it (not only in the lyrics, they recorded part of it in a church).
And finally to top it off, they sing parts of songs in French !! I am originally from France, and I study in Montreal, where the band is based at present.
