nothing earth-shattering but pretty damn solid in my opinion. that sums up a good deal of their catalogue actually.
i'd highlight marching bands of manhattan, someday you will be loved, and what sarah said. what sarah said --> brothers on a hotel bed reminded me a lot of transatlanticism --> passenger seat, which is one of my favorite death cab moments.

I'm loathe to give Pitchfork credit, but they summed it up best, when they said something like, "much like the rest of the death cab discography, plans gives you around 5 songs you'll love, and 5 you'll sort of like." It's so true.

it's okay, has some "peaks and valley's" some of the lyrics suck. i need to listen to it a few more times though

marching bands of manhattan and i will follow you into the dark were my favorites on the first listen through. i really like the production. the effemenite chris walla really helps make it sound nice ;)

does anyone know what the hell is on the cover

it sort of looks like some kind of seaweed or a sea sponge. the color sort of reminds me of that kind of photography noyen used to post

the music in brothers on a bed really reminds me of the album leaf

yeah this is pretty good. not transatlanticism good but not much is. i like the musings on death.
i was at the record store tuesday, but i couldn't bring myself to get it.
i can't say i'm that interested in getting it.
