5.0 out of 5 stars There best work still.., 13 Jun 2008
This review is from: Transatlanticism (Audio CD)
I'm also surprised by the lack of reviews for this remarkable album so thought I have to had my own. The song that got me really 'into' them was The New Year and after hearing I brought the album on here and loved straight away, that track and Expo '86 being the real stand outs at first. Then the all album opened up for me and every song was a classic. Lightness is a ear pleasing and joy of a song, with great vocals and 'oh wha-ho's' aplenty. I skip forward to The Sound Of Settling being the most uplifting song on the album 'Old age is just around the bend and I can't wait to go gray'. The title track echoes and wallows with Ben saying 'I need you so much closer' then passenger seat will bring back down to earth with it's light piano sound. We looked giants is a other loud song with a nice ending of guitars. The final song A lack of color is there most famous song and can also be heard on The O.C (thanks to that show that made me listen to the new year) ends the album fantastically and leaves a nice feeling inside even though the song is quite sad about a break up of all things. Have to say theres a very natural transition from track to track on this album unlike Plan. , This still ranks my favorite of all the albums second being The photo album which I also love. If your a Death Cab fan chances are you already own this and if not then your mad! And new fans should by this 1st rather then Plans or the new album.
