The Decemberists: The King Is Dead

January 27, 2011

So, I’m planning on reviewing a lot of albums on this site. My goal is 50 in 2011. I want to try to do this in some kind of consistent way. With this in mind, I am going to have sections for each review: History, Review, Rating. In the history section, I’ll talk either about the band’s history or my history in the band. The aim of this section is to put my review into perspective by disclosing what I know about the band and how I feel about their earlier work. The review section should be pretty self explanatory. Finally, the rating scale will be a different arbitrary rating (i.e. 4/5 basketballs, NC-17, 12 stars…). Hopefully this will be relevant to the CD. Oh, and I’ll also provide download links. Because I want you to like fun. I also want to keep them pretty short. Here we go. Review 1/50
