`Narrow Stairs' is another solid album from Death Cab For Cutie and whilst it isn't a departure from previous albums, when the music is as good as this you wouldn't want it to be. You will find their distinctive sound and song-writing here and stand out tracks have to be `I Will Possess Your Heart' which has an excellent build up before you get into the actual song itself. I also enjoy `Pity and Fear', but other people don't rate this too highly, but that's what is great about this band, they can appeal to many people and what stands out to one will pass another by. The booklet is excellent with all the lyrics and great design and I love getting a decent booklet with an album rather than a flimsy bit of card with just the production credits that are so often used these days. This isn't quite as good as `Transatlanticism' or `Plans' but they were both outstanding albums and will be pretty hard to beat. Saying that this is still very good and well worth a listen if you enjoyed this bands previous music.
