5 stars I liked The Decemberists the very first time I heard them. The part that appeals to me the most are the vocals and how the songs are mainly acoustic-guitar driven. Also, this is a band that shows prog music doesn't have to be complicated music. The opening song is simple but great in its simplicity, I think. The singer for this group might actually be my second favorite singer with work on this website. I like the opening the closing sections of "The Island," but I don't care for the middle section quite as much, though it's still good. I also love the female's vocals on "Yankee Bayonet," as I think she has a unique voice. The songs are diverse in sound, and yet anyone can know this is The Decemberists because of the singer's distinct voice. A lot of bands sound stupid singing "oos" and "ahs" and "la-de-das," but somehow this band sounds great singing such sounds. Each song sounds great, with interesting lyrics that actually made me want to ask someone about them (although I think the Asian story is kind of weird). Overall, this album has many memorably parts, and I fully recommend it to pretty much anyone.
