This Band Is Underrated,
This review is from: Transatlanticism (Audio CD)
This is the first Death Cab For Cutie album I have ever bought, and I must say its everything I wanted it to be and then some. For those of you who are just browsing this review and don't know much about the band, I urge you to check them out. This album is relaxing and poetic, brilliant and easy to the ear. I would have to say the standouts are:
The New Year-Opens the Album Perfectly, I could swear I had heard this song somewhere before I bought the album.
Title and Registration- Great Lyrics and I must say a great title to the song, will have you thinking.
Expo '86-One of the smoothest songs on the album, it has a great beat.
The Sound Of Settling- It's the only song I knew before I bought the album, it's short but very catchy, I love it.
Tiny Vessels-Lyrics I think a lot of people can relate to, just put together nicely.
Tranatlantism-This is in my opinion the best song on the album, a huge buildup with some great lyrics. I think its simply incredible.
A Lack of Color-Great acoustic to end the album, this song is beautiful.
As you can see I think that there are many standouts, I love the whole album even if every song doesn't stand out to me. If you enjoy bands like The Shins or Modest Mouse, I think you will dig Death Cab For Cutie.
For an album that is perfect for all types of places, moods, and people, I award with five stars.
