The stories colin meloy spins about sailors, hookers, ghosts of dead children & chimney sweeps, lost loves, and recently found ones are priceless. Slide guitar, stand up bass, accordian, and that voice take you places you never thought, in the now and in times and places past. Music in the vain of robyn hitchcock & the egyptians, rufus wainwright and belle & sebastian. Tight good stuff that will infect you with it's evocative sound.

The Decemberists--now my favorite band--are masters of exacting lyrics. "July, July" contains the memorable phrase: "And we'll remember this when we are old and ancient/Though the specifics might be vague/And I'll say your camisole was a sprightly light magenta/When in fact it was a nappy bluish gray." Most of the songs are rolling, subtle collections of minor and diminished chords. The entire album has a ballad feel--"Legionnaire's Lament," arguably the best song on the album, is the song of a soldier in the French foreign legion, longing for his homeland, while "Leslie Anne Levine" is a dark and twisting ballad of a woman who dies in childbirth, from the point of view of her stillborn child. The Decemberists are VASTLY less popular than they should be. This album is worth the money.

Truly the future of indie rock/pop. The first LP by a truly spectacular band. "Cocoon" is intoxicating and the two- part finale is pure genius.
