The Decemberists’ "The Crane Wife"

Filed under: Music — Chris @ 3:42 pm

I’ve only listened to it once, so a grain of salt, but I think The Decemberists’ “The Crane Wife” might be the best album that ever was or ever will be. They’ve brought back some of the crunch of “The Tain” and skipped the musical-theater preciousness of “The Mariner’s Revenge Song” (which I liked! But still!).

Note to Stephen: this is twee. Pooping back and forth is quirky. (And may get you ejected from the House GOP caucus. After, you know, five or ten years.)
