Review: Death Cab for Cutie - Narrow Stairs

A new album from Death Cab?! Sweet! I loved Transatlanticism with my whole heart.

Narrow Stairs is a good album. It falls flat once or twice, and I must admit that I prefer the truncated radio version of the first single, "I Will Possess Your Heart." If that makes me less of a DCFC fan, then so be it! This new album features some great lyrics by one of my personal favorite songwriters.

It's a good addition to Death Cab's already stellar catalog, and you should pick it up.

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you about "I Will Possess Your Heart"; that song's heart (pun!) and soul are in its super long intro and outro.

It is a pretty solid album though, my current fav's are "Your New Twin Sized Bed" and "Cath," though "Pity and Fear" has been coming on strong as of late.

I'm a bit disappointed with this review. You don't go into any meaningful depth. Where does the album fall flat? Why?

All you say is "you should buy it" and then push your affiliate links.

Come on, you can do better... said...

I'm glad I am not the only one who likes it. So many of my friends who call themselves die hard Death Cab fans don't like it... I honestly don't get it!?! It is a great record!
