Why I want to consume this — 6 years ago
I sought this out because I recently saw Death Cab for Cutie in Berkeley (mp3.com review). The show was my first introduction to their music and I was quite underwhelmed. There was no energy and the songs just droned on with no build up or climax. The only song I really liked was the title track to this album, “Transatlanticism,” I found out later. On my first listen, nothing really grabbed me about this album, but I’ll give it another chance or two.
