Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
"Photobooth" is about as good as a song can get. I've heard it a dozens of times and its never gotten old, everything about it is amazing: the lyrics, the singing, the little clicking noise throughout the whole thing, and the instrumental part in the middle with the bells is incredible. It's such a simple song, but it's so listenable, i've never seen anyone who hasn't liked this song.
"Technicolor Girls" is also a fantastic song, it gives you that nice, warm feeling, and i find it hard not to start humming along with it. It's also very simple and stripped down. For alot of the song its just the electrical guitar and the vocals, which sound so good together.
"Song for Kelly Huckaby" is sad sounding song all about "photographs of the past". It's very emotional and hits harder than any other song on the EP. You see a more complex side of the band in this song that i really like. It's a good song to listen to after a break up.
"405 (Acoustic)" after photobooth is my favorite song on the EP. It's one of the prettiest songs they've ever written, the acoustic guitar is fantastic, it's reminiscent of classic acoustic songs such as "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac. Ben has a really high voice, and this is about as high as his voice ever gets on this song.
"Company Calls Epilogue" was proclaimed by Ben as his favorite death cab song. I love the acoustic guitar in this song, especially when it cuts to it about 2 minutes into the song. Like every Death Cab song, this one has a great melody and great lyrics.
Basically this EP is a must have for music fans, and especially death cab fans. If you like Indie Rock at all you'll love this EP. I can not say how good this EP is so just get it and find out.
The lyrics of "Photobooth" tumble out over a tinny drum loop like a series of those tiny square photos from a tiny curtained room. Each line conjures a picture of skinny-dipping or living out on the lawn as a friendship veers into summer love and then just as quickly veers out, leaving just that strip of pictures to document the moment of shared longing.
"405" could be about the same relationship, but rather than focusing on an artifact it peers across the distance between the two actors, now represented by the distance of a lengthy highway. This acoustic take offers a vastly different mood than the electric album version - the bouncy guitar picking and Ben's delicate delivery is immediately reminiscent of Elliott Smith.
It's hard to describe what about each of these five Death Cab For Cutie songs makes them so visually evocative. The songs are exactly like movies - not about a theme or a riff or even a single line of dialogue, but about the the story they allow you to voyeuristically live in for a brief four minutes. It's something about a focus on details like floorboards and wedding cakes, lips and fiber optics, while guitars and keyboards are woven together to form an impenetrable bed of rolling electric noise for reminisced lyrics to glide over.
