The Decemberists | The King Is Dead Album Review

The Decemberists are set to release their sixth studio album in 2011. The release date for the new album is January 18th 2011 and you might just want to mark it on your calendar.  You can tell that some of the tracks on The King Is Dead album find some inspiration in R.E.M. They sort of resonate with that kind of Orange Crush energy. The beginning of The King Is Dead may have a more commercial sound to it but it also harkens back to the good old days, bringing on recollections of bands like Neutral Milk Hotel, with its slight country twang matched with a curious set of cautionary tails woven into the lyrics. The lyrics to Calamity Song and June Hymn are standouts and will no doubt find their way into the hearts of fans that flock to this band.
