The Decemberists' prior output has a reputation of being dense, artsy, dramatic and not particularly accessible. With this release, the group turns that reputation on its head. Sounding musically like a cross between Neil Young and R.E.M., this album boasts tight, efficient playing and outstanding melodic content with a slight country tinge. The vocals are fairly standard alt-rock, but with an interesting twist - Colin Meloy sings loudly and confidently, an approach that works perfectly with the material.Was this review helpful?

Rootsy American acoustic music played with an alt-rock perspective - it's hard to beat that combination in my book!
