4 stars Some bands from current Indie scene deserve to be heard and known by PA visitors, and I personally agree that THE DECEMBERISTS are truly the band of that kind. With epics alone, like 'The Island' and 'The Crane Wife 1/2', this album is worth of solid 3 stars, but I'll add an extra star for that massive melodic talent Colin Meloy seems to have. Even filler-like songs are catchy and memorable, with nice lyrics and tasteful arrangements. A new JETHRO TULL? Why not, actually? Some GENESIS can be heard as well, and despite that ugly Indie attitude these guys seem to care for ;), 'The Crane Wife' is indeed a great and progressive record. Recommended, if you haven't checked it yet.
