If you like Death Cab for Cutie, Built to Spill, or Modest Mouse, you'll probably like this band as well. They have a similar semi-polished sound, more accessible than the Mouse and more upbeat than Death Cab (broad generalizations, of course.) There are several bouncy tracks ('Car parts' is my favorite on the CD) and a handful of slower, folkier numbers such as 'Mimi.' Great attention to detail; love the liner notes & photos. Definitely looking forward to more in the future...

After the departure of Harvey Danger, I caught wind of The Long Winters (HD's former singer Sean Nelson does backup vocals). And, although the music here is more "indie" than Harvey Danger ever was, 'The Worst You Can Do Is Harm' is a fabulous album nonetheless. (What does "indie" even mean? It seems every band not on MTV gets labeled "indie".) Every song here is beautiful one way or another, and there are countless lines that become embedded in your mind for hours on end. Whatever your taste in music--whether it's rock, pop, classical, or (dare we say) "indie"--The Long Winters are for you. An overview...
The real gems are "Unsalted Butter", "Carparts" and "Medicine Cabinet Pirate", in that order. "Unsalted Butter" boasts a simple melody mixed with scathingly soothing lyrics. John Roderick's voice make the song what it is; and that's the best song here. "Carparts" is more upbeat and rocking. The subdued 'baby wasn't down with the heist' bits stand out, and 'I don't even have cigarettes' finishes it off quite nicely. The first stanza of "Medicine..." has already been talked about here (fittingly) by another reviewer, but I must say it is one of the greatest lyrical uprisings in the history of music (really). The music is rather one-dimensional, but the lyrics are just stunning. "Mimi" is an interesting track, musically, but doesn't quite compare to "Unsalted Butter". The fast-paced silliness of "Samaritan" is amiable and intriguing, though not as absorbing or as good as "Give Me A Moment", which starts slowly--almost like techno--and fades out with beautiful piano keys.

There's different types of music for everyone. This one is mine.

I love a good story. I love it when you can tell someone is working out what they're going through through their music. I love lyrics. I think this album is simply beautiful, and I wouldn't change a thing. The first time I ever heard the song "Carparts" it was live, and it hit me right in the feels - I knew from that moment on that I'd always be a fan.

I'm not sure if this is standard, or the point of it, but I received two seemingly identical cds in this albums jewel case. I don't know if it was somehow a mistake, or what, but it's not one I can really complain about.
