The Decemberists explore a new sound on their inspired 8th studio album I'll Be Your Girl, out 3/17 on Capitol Records. The acclaimed Portland, Oregon-based band (with nearly 2M adj. albums sales) worked with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana del Ray) & embraced influences such as Roxy Music and New Order to spark a new creative path, as evidenced on synth-driven lead single "Severed." The band kicks off their 2018 Your Girl / Your Ghost World Tour on 3/22.

I heard "Severed" on XM Radio and was completely blown away, very first listen. I ordered "I'll Be Your Girl" on CD and have to say it is the first full-length album, beginning to end, that I truly love all of in longer than I'd hoped.
This album has the Decemberist elements that I liked previously... Colin Meloy's unique voice and singing style, the acoustic and percussion elements, the quirky song elements. On top of that, they have added some really good, well-placed synthesizers that take the whole thing to another dimension that I love. And then there is the lyrical content. A lot of it is dark. The very first time I listened to "Cutting Stone," I had goosebumps and a strong reaction that I haven't had in years and only really remember with masterpiece rock art like Pink Floyd, Rush, and Queensryche at their very best. But this isn't really like them. Hard to describe with words.
I love the whole album. It's 100% Decemberists, but it brings in elements sonically and lyrically that I love. Just love.

I was swayed into buying it as part of an Amazon 2 for £15 promotion, and I'm glad I did.
It's by far the best album since the Crane Wife. Not up there with the first three albums but that would be too much to ask.
If like me you got into the band in their early 'indie' days then take a chance on it.
I won't dissect it track by track - it's more fun to discover for yourself and form your own opinions, but trust me you won't be disappointed, unless you prefer the later more meandering 'concept' albums.The King is NOT Dead, he's just been deposed by the old King.
Disappointing. Meh. Could do better. Lacks heart. Disposable. I'm kind of regretting buying those tickets now.
You get the picture and I am a big Decemberists fan normally
