One of the Most Original Albums to Come Out in a LONG Time
It's honestly difficult to relate this album to others, it sounds like nothing I've heard before. It's the psychobilly of jukebox music.
Dead Man's Bones starts off with the creeping, moving sounds from the first track, indicating the subjects and sounds in the following tracks. The quiet sounds of the first track lead into the second, with heartbeats, making the listener anticipate what is coming. The rest of the track bursts into an expressive sound. "In the Room Where You Sleep" and "My Body's a Zombie for You" contain the quintessential sounds of doo-wop and monster rock. The creeping feeling of many of the songs are enhanced when the choir of children are added into the vocals. The album ends with the ambient sounds of Broken Social Scene. Songs like "Werewolf Head" and "Flowers Grow Out of My Grave" are not only indicators of this album as a great Halloween soundtrack, but also as a zombie prom soundtrack, or any other time you feel like slow dancing with that special monster.
