What can I say about 'Plans'? Death cab's best yet! The indulgent voice of Bem gibbard is put to good use in the powerful songs on the album. The much loved 'I will follow you into the dark' has already met it's share of success and other tracks such as the rock- based 'Crooked Teeth', 'Soul meets body' and 'Your heart is an empty room' are no doubt headed for the billboards. Death cab's reminisent vocals and heartfelt melodies are sure to caputre your heart as they have mine. I reccomend this timeless album to anyone, any age, anywhere.

Quite possibly one of the greatest and most poetic bands that i have had the privilage of listening to originally was passed over for an equally great artist. But upon further listening to tracks like "soul meets body" and "Follow you into the Dark" the genious of Death Cab came shining through. It was the clever use of metaphors, the lush arrangements, and the always hesitant, but assured vocals that first caught my attention. The album is a breeding ground for some of the most beautiful landscapes of aural exploration and emotional contemplation i have ever heard. The genious lies not in the songs individual complexity, but in the simplicity and raw emotion that cant be easily duplicated. This album is an adventure in self discovery, emotional longing, and a quest to understand the complexities of life, death, and all that there is in between. A must listen.

normally, I wouldnt give 5 stars to someone so easy, but I believe Death Cab has the right to it. Right away I liked this album. I like every song on this album, and I liked them with the 1st listen. Death Cab, Im impressed.

As someone who would normally pass on so-called "indie" bands due to elitist attitudes and obtuse stylings, a single on the radio from this album caught my ear. What "Soul Meets Body" led me to was a wonderful palette of metaphors and melodies that was DCFC. I had never heard any of their previous material, but I am very impressed with the lyrics of this album. In a world of trite, emo-laden songs, here is a band who takes the act of songwriting seriously. It seems to me, that all the songs on this album deal with death, or at the very least some sort of loss, and how it intersects wtih love and honor. They are poignant without being sappy or overly sentimental. It's the first CD in a long time that I have listened to from beginning to end, hanging on every phrase of every lyric. If I had to pick a favorite, "I Will Follow You Into the Dark" would be it. Give yourself some time to earnestly listen to the tracks, so you can focus on those lyrics. This is a CD best enjoyed at home, in quiet contemplation, or on a long drive by yourself.

This is a really good album, but I'd like them to go back to the post-rock that they did so well. Now this is sounding not far from true emo, and the lyrics don't have the poignancy that they had on Transatlanticism.

Trans will always be a favorite, but after owning all of Death cab's collection, this is smooshed right up next to Transatlanticism. Excellent, classic Death Cab. Granted it never really 'rocks out' but who cares? I'm just happy they didn't totally change with their first major label release. This album is lovely.

Wow, amazing album. I got it the first day it came out and it was great. Personally I liked their previous album, Transatlanticism better, but this album is close behind. I love dcfc.

Death Cab For Cutie strikes a few familiar chords with "Plans" but doesn't fail to impress. It only receives a four here because "Transatlanticism" wasn't allowed six. The title track, "Marching Bands of Manhattan," is a beautiful opener. The band's intoxicating melodies and pointed lyrics stick out from the start. "Soul Meets Body" and "Summer Skin" follow, and with a catchy chorus in hand, they are sure to be favorites. A new addition on "Plans" is the acoustic attempt with "I Will Follow You into the Dark." It includes a simple string, but lead singer Ben Gibbard delivers. In convincing fashion, he makes the topic of death a remarkable love song. Gibbard's lyrics amaze throughout, and the band goes along for the ride. The music never becomes as harsh as it did on tracks like "The New Year" and "We Looked like Giants" from "Trans," but don't let that worry you. Loyal fans will not be let down. "Plans" is a lyrical masterpiece. It questions who will watch us die and gives us hope and love in the midst of an overall, mournful tone. Produced by their very own Chris Walla, these next 11 tracks from Death Cab will not disappoint. Death Cab fans need only rejoice, for they have found a miracle in singer-songwriter, Ben Gibbard.
