Everyone lost faith in the Decemberists when they signed with Capital Records, fearing that it would tarnish their sound. Hate to say it, even I did. How could I be more wrong? The Crane Wife might be their best work to date, from start to finish– unbelievable songs. They clearly haven’t left their roots, and what good roots they are. The single “O, Valencia” is a clear standout on the record, but the hands down favorite (at least for me, and should be if you have ears too) is “The Crane Wife 3.”
