The Decemberists

The Decemberists new album is a stunning tour de force. Following on from their 2005 release Picaresque, this new one represents their debut for Capitol Records. It opens with "The Crane Wife 3", which is a great introduction to the band's unique blend of baroque pop, folk and rock. The second track, "The Island" is a highlight, an amazing song which is divided into 3 parts and takes you on a journey through prog rock and folk. The other highlight is "The Crane Wife 1 & 2" which is a touching and superb song adapted from a japanese folk tale. Co-produced by Chris Walla, this record is a major triumph that reveals itself more after each listen. You will not be disappointed if you buy this unique and eclectic record.
