That is interesting, never would have guessed someone from Dream Theater would enjoy Death Cab. I didn't care for this album at first, but now that I've heard more of their discography, I wouldn't say it's their worst by far.
This album was [artist]Dream Theater[/artist] bassist, John Myung's number 1. favorite album of 2011. And being the big JMX fan that I am, I immediately began to listen to it, and after a few listenings it also became my favorite album of 2011.
It's such a simple piece of work but at the same time, it's a emotionally masterpiece, every small details works together perfectly. As John Myung himself said it, "Chemistry, lyrics, and production.".
