    I like their earlier materials better, especially this one. [2]

    During one of those eternal, god-awful family vacations every teenager loathes, I ordered this album through a local independent music store. It arrived toward the end of the trip, but I'll always remember "Something About Airplanes" as the album that kept me sane during a 12-hour car ride from Maine to Jersey.

    Narrow Stairs and Plans are good but I like their earlier materials better, especially this one.

    Totally just got that boat tattooed on my wrist. Minus the overlapping lines on the seats.

    drinking champagne from a paper cup is never quite the same...

    Sounds somewhat underdeveloped next to what they'd go on to produce but not bad. Pictures in an Exhibition is one of my favourite DCFC songs after all...

    President of what? is the song that made me listen to this album more.

    Does not compare to WHTFAWVY! or YCPTSWC.

    this is their best, for sure. it's the subtlety, and the comparitively restrained production. but they only went downhill after 'Transatlanticism'. it kind of started with that album, tbh...most of it is magic, but the title track, 'Tiny Vessels', 'We Looked Like Giants'...start of the decline, I reckon.
