  • This is probably the most brilliant album the Decemberists have ever conjured up. Blows me the fuck away.
  • Love beyond words for this album. So beautiful!
  • I forgot how good Annan Water is. One of their best songs, in or out of context.
  • I am apparently the only one who dislikes this.
  • This is the greatest collection of songs in the history of music. [2]
  • If i was a film director, I'd make this story into a film.
  • This is one of the best albums of all time, hands down.
  • This is the kind of record you have to listen to start from finish in one sitting. To me this is in the category as Wilco's "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot."
  • well said.
  • If you hate this album, you can go fuck yourself <3
