It's hard to rate a song when asked because your rating It against what? If your assuming everyone that's heard It well that's a no sense writing one. And If assuming everyone that never heard It, how do you describe It? Many people say classic rock Is the best. Well I say new classics are being made all the time and this song Is one of them. If you just give It one full listen It grabs you and stands out as an exception piece of work. I'm now slowly discovering more by the band.
Just give this a try anyone who likes melodic good music. It's not hard rock so here's hoping you give It a chance. This should be In the top 10 and I'm sure Is on many radio stations listners. Just not Itunes.

I found the song typical to the northwest area, fresh, good lyrics, and skillful harp riffs. It was the 4 bar intro that got my attention to the song and thought it would be a fantastic ringtone for incoming calls on my cell phone. THE DECEMBERISTS did a fine job and I give it 5 stars.

Having heard singles for some time from this Seattle based group, I sat up and took notice. So much so that I was finally moved to buy a whole album. Good move. This is country, folk, indie pop and rock rolled into one. Nice job. I will look back on their catalog and dig deeper, probably more gems await.

I heard part of this song about a month ago, then saw the band perform it on Leno. Not a big fan overall of newer music with this song being an exception. It reminds me of old school R.E.M. Great harmonies, lyrics and melody. If you like this song also check out Mumford & Sons "The Cave."

I've been loving the Decemberists for a while now, and this song is currently one of my favorites by them.

Found this little gem while on I-Tunes when it was a free song and I instantly fell in love with it.
