I agree. "Plans" was the first DCFC album that I bought, and I worked my way backward through their catalog. Their newer stuff (Transatlanticism, Plans) is more concrete, with more solid songwriting. I do like their older stuff, but the newer is much more listenable, IMO.
I bought Plans and Transatlanticism first and have worked backwards too. There's a lot of great stuff on the earlier CD's, but those two are much more consistent.
Definitely check out PLANS. Great CD.
sounds like Suzanne Vega could have written this mess

I know what you mean. I think their "uniqueness" is in the quality of Benjamin Gibbard's (the lead singer's) vocals. But I bought and do like their current album, Plans. I think they've matured and gotten more interesting

I'm lovin this because I can listen to RP and my daughters as well, and in a rare accomplishment we all pretty much agree that we won't channel-hop -- mainly becasue we never know what's next. And that is how it should be! We're all exposed to some really great music. Thanmk again, and again, and again... :clap:
"Intentional mess" is he talking about my code!?
Hey, this older stuff by them ain't half bad!

These guys always get lots of aclaim, but every time I hear them, they just seem to be fairly blah and/or genaric to me.

I agree, but the Plans album has some very good songs on it. Sometimes 'the hype' supercedes the artist. byrd wrote:

Don't like Death Cab. Don't like Postal Service. Don't like the little boy simper.

Yes Yes Yes!!! Keep the DCFC coming - they've got a new one coming out this month and I can't wait. Ben Gibbard's writing is very original & unique and Chris Walla is one of the better rock producers working today imo.

and sadly from what I've heard a one time only effort...
Sounds a bit like pink cigarette by Mr. Bungle
:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
one of my favorite tracks from DCFC so far... :clap:
Hey, I can finally be hip and say I listen to Death Cab for Cutie. Actually, though, I really like this...
Reminds me of Dolby... theme

Hmmmm. All their songs are starting to sound the same for me. Not a huge fan of this one.

This track is a little heavy, but overall this band puts out some nicely layered stuff. I was turned on to them by my hip teenage brother-in-law ... who amazingly was turned on to them from Radio Paradise. :-)
I had the opportunity to take note of this band when they made the 'Top 10 albums of 2003' list in Paste Magazine. What an exciting discovery this has been!
