I can honestly call the Decemberists my favorite band and it has always disappointed me that this album is called their best by so many. I'd put it ahead of the new one (which isn't bad by any means, it's just not as good as the others) but they have other much better work. There's 4 songs on this album of 11 songs that I can't even bring myself to listen to. Sure the other 7 are great, but those 4 bog it down so badly for me that it makes the album hard to listen to as a whole.

I just recently went to listen to Ram for the first time and thought it was one of the most god awful albums I've ever heard. I couldn't make it thru it. I honestly, no troll, want to know what you like about it.

Yup. I've actually enjoyed the EPs better than the album this year.

It was far from their best but surely good enough to make a showing here.

That first performance looked like a porn parody of tejano music star Selena.

I love me some Decemberists but I thought this video was awful. Still love the song tho.

I'm not going back to re-examine but most bands, especially big ones, don't use cords like that anymore - they're strictly cordless.

Hopefully the performance isn't the spiritual successor to this one:
