I personally prefer Trail of Dead at their meandering best with loose, symphonic song structures that butt up against and ebb away from each other as an album plays out. Tao of the Dead is my favorite Trail of Dead album--not Sourcetags. I add that caveat to my review because most other reviewers and quite a few Trail of Dead listeners seem to long for a return to the band's style on Sourcetags and earlier albums, which was much more focused on single songs and aggressive rather than progressive rock.

Lost Songs doesn't disappoint those fans. It's a focused, song-by-song album that ditches much of the symphonic (both in structure and instrumentation) efforts of their four preceding albums and sees a very tight band delivering well crafted rock tunes. I'm constantly astounded by how well Trail of Dead can hold my attention--six albums in for me and I still greet each release with great anticipation and have yet to be disappointed. I can't think of any other band that has produced six albums I'm happy to listen to in their entirety any time. (Yes, I know that Trail of Dead have eight albums counting the two before Sourcetags, but I don't count the first two in the "listen to in their entirety any time" category.)

If you longed for ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead to return to their Sourcetags sound and style, you should love this album. If you think that World's Apart was possibly even better than Sourcetags, then you might lament the turn this album takes, but should still find it very enjoyable as every song is ridiculously engaging and well crafted.

I almost didn't by this record. With a title like LOST SONGS, I thought this was a B-sides/rarities album filled with songs that didn't quite make it to previous releases. Not so! LOST SONGS is a completely new full-length record from ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead. The band's output since their masterwork SOURCE TAGS AND CODES has been scattershot -- many flashes of brilliance among some meandering or uninteresting tracks. I've been a fan of the band for a while now, and this is the kind of album that you will want to tell people about. The band crafts a brand of post-rock that feels hard to come by these days: part punk, part prog, and park alt rock, the band has slick sensibilities, but they do a great job creating a sonic atmosphere (complete with rolling intensity) around their tunes.

It's clear from the opening track that ...And You Will Know Us are making an tight, aggressive, and energized album. "Open Doors" pushes forward with an intensity that never lets up, and the energy isn't lost in transition to the next few tracks either ("Pinhole Camera," "Up to Infinity", "Opera Obscura"). In fact, this album burns with a fire that I haven't seen in quite a while; even when the band slows down ("Awestruck"), the result is a solid effort. The album does slow a bit towards the end, with the aforementioned "Awestruck" and album closer "Time and Again." These are by no means bad songs, but after the pure adrenaline of the first half of the record, listeners can't help but wait for the inevitable crash of cymbals and roar of amplifiers, but it never quite returns. The album is consistently good, but man, those first few songs are worth the price of admission alone. Not a single note on this album feels out of place or wasted.

An aggressive, all out record that keeps Trail of Dead at the top of my playlist. Fresh off the heals of "Tao of the Dead," which was great in its own right, this record shows ToD can maintain quality, even on record 8, improving with time, and can provide me with the type of progressive rock that frankly, just isn't out there anymore. Great job guys! Keep the records coming.

As a BIG fan of the ToD albums that precede this, the absence of the soaring symphonic elements and tonal shifts and sheer variety of styles disappointed me. But once past those hurdles, i quite enjoyed the new album. As noted in other reviews, this is a less produced and finessed album, a selection of songs rather than a concept album. On those grounds, it succeeds and thrills. So, while not the ToD album I've been waiting for - this si still fine, fine music.

Best album since Source Tags and Codes, it's that good! I did not like Source Tags at first but it grew into one of my favorite albums. Next favorite album would be Lost songs, and then a 3-way tie between World's Apart, Madonna, and So Divided
