"Yeah I don't think this was really noteworthy at all. Kind of a forgettable album imo"

I liked one of their older tracks a lot but I don't remember which

I miss when the Decemberists were more exciting. This isn't bad but 2 or 3 albums prior they were really out on a limb.

Listening to January Hymn while shoveling snow is just perfect ~

Criminally underrated album.

There's a sheer feeling of summery nostalgia surrounding this.

I used to snob this record - and I still do prefer their more excentric and ambitious stuff - but I've become more obsessed with it recently than I've ever been with a specific album

Digging: Yoko Ono - Approximately Infinite Universe

The nostalgia factor is what elevates this above the rest of their material for me. They've made more interesting albums but none of them resonate with me quite as much as this.

Not to degrade the rest of their material, I adore almost everything else they've done too!

The songwriting is impeccable on this one, it's just a bit short on intrigue.

I get why many die hard Decemberists fans don't enjoy this as much but to my ears this is a stone-cold classic.

one consistent jam after another, but where's the whimsy?



this album is almost too grounded, if that is even possible
