stunning 2 juin 2004
Par carl cuchetti - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
have you ever heard a beautiful old celtic song, where upon listening closely to the lyrics you discover it's about how a bride is killed on her wedding day and her ghost avenges her death... and you think "that's a weird thing to write a song about..."

Well, this disc is a lot like that.

Raised on pradies, peanut shells and dirt 31 mars 2004
Par Jellybones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Last years opening salvo from The Decemberists was Castaways and Cutouts. Crafting beautiful songs rich with story, they have quickly become a pinnacle on the scene (followed by another full length release the same year, and already an EP this year, they may also quickly become one of the most prolific if they are not careful). Colin Meloy and his Decemberists hail from Portland OR, and are oft compared to Neutral Milk Hotel. I'm going to get one thing clear and out of the way right off the bat if you don't mind. One, yes, they do sound akin to Neutral Milk Hotel. And two, I'll be perfectly honest, I'm not that fond of Jeff Magnum's voice. Though I can hear the resemblance, I like Colin's voice much, much better. Another reviewer implied that this was a less daring album than Neutral Milk's outings, and I concede that might be a fair assessment. But while the blueprint might not be pushing the envelope quite as far as they did, that does not keep this group from putting together a musical monument through perfect, beautiful execution and well measured emotion.
Overall, this album is dotted with beautiful musical interaction by so many instruments and graced with detailed lyrical imagery. In my mind I can picture them as the last of the wandering minstrels, recanting the ghostly mid nineteenth century tale of young death on "Leslie Ann Levine", featuring what I can only identify as some sort of well played squeeze box ("Fifteen years gone now, I still wander this parapet and shake my rattle bone / Fifteen years gone now, I still cling to the petticoats of the girl who died with me"). I can picture them modern daydreamers lost in the visions of ages past during "Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect", where they evoke pictures of soldiers, rogues, and scoundrels while finishing upon a more modern but just as elegant fancy ("But you / my soiled teenage girlfriend / while you furrow like a lioness / we are vagabonds, we travel without seatbelts on / we live this close to death"). Gorgeous in its orchestration with a melody like soft falling rain in the background, it is definitely my favorite. "July, July!" goes a bit more up-tempo, displaying some vocal harmonizing, and almost rocking out on the memorable chorus. The album closes with "California One / Youth and Beauty Brigade" a montage of intoxicating guitar work and stunning lyrics that capture that strange paradox feeling one has when they have at once a complete satisfaction in the moment, yet doubts and fears about the future. Flipping midway, the tune changes and piano accented by wave crashes of cymbals take over, organs swell, and the ten minute juggernaut finishes in a beautiful almost psychedelic whirlpool, and coughs up its albums title ("We're lining up the light-loafer'd and the bored bench warmers / Castaways and cutouts, fill it up / Come join the Youth and Beauty Brigade / Nothing will stand in our way").

The Least Impressive of Their First Four Albums (* * * 1/2) 30 juin 2008
Par Blake Maddux - Publié sur Amazon.com
I will try to keep this short, as you have surely read by now that The Decemberists' debut album Castaways and Cutouts is inhabited by ghosts, prostitutes, nefarious seamen, and various other rogues. You probably also know that the songs evoke a time virtually untouched by modern civilization.

About half of the songs on the album are at least pretty good. These include the only two up-tempo numbers on the album, "July, July!" and "The Legionnaire's Lament". The strong mid-tempo songs include "Leslie Anne Levine", narrated by the ghost of a stillborn baby, "Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect", and "A Cautionary Song", which is about mother who must sell her body to randy sailors in order to feed her children. "Odalisque" mixes up the tempos, and will require the first - if not second or third - reference to a dictionary for most listeners. The prominent arpeggios toward the end are reminiscent of "Because" by The Beatles. With these five songs going for it, the first half of the album is uniformly strong.

Alas, several songs on the second half of the CD are a bit, well, boring. "Cocoon" slows the tempo significantly, to the detriment of the song and the album. It is quite difficult to remain interested in it over the course of its seven minutes. "Grace Cathedral Hill" is a better song, but does little to add any momentum. The aforementioned "The Legionnaire's Lament" rescues the listener from the onset of ennui, but "Clementine" - a sweet and sincere song worth listening to at least once - threatens to set it right back in.

Fortunately, Castaways and Cutouts closes on a upbeat note, albeit a very long one. "California One/Youth and Beauty Brigade" is the first epic of the group's career. It is a dreamy, mid-tempo number featuring a tasty steel guitar and a seamless transition from its first half to its second. The ironically-named brigade of the title welcomes "bed wetters", "ambulance chasers", "poor pick-pockets", "the light-loafered", and "bored bench warmers". The last verse includes a clever first-person reference to the Multnomah County Library in Oregon, where Meloy's overdue fines were likely very large.

Overall, this is a good debut. It introduces a singular new talent on the indie rock scene. Even when then songs themselves are not that great, the songwriting and instrumentation are solid. Colin Meloy is a great front man with a unique voice, literally and figuratively. His lyrics are vivid and his vocabulary is enormous. Raise your hand if you have ever heard words like "odalisque" (which I think he mispronounces), "parapet", "wastrel", "camisole", "balustrade", "bagatelle", "fecundity", and "charabanc". They should start including Decemberists albums with SAT study guides. Instrumentally, the guitars all almost exclusively acoustic, and accordions add an old-world flavor to several of the songs.

If you are inclined to like The Decemberists, you will enjoy Castaways and Cutouts. If it is the first one that you hear by them, you will be impressed by how much they improve on later albums. If you work your way back to it, you will probably find it to be a bit of a disappointment. One will get a more accurate sense of how good this band is from Her Majesty, Picaresque, or The Crane Wife. Rather than risk not liking Castaways and Cutouts very much, I would highly recommend going with one of their other albums as a first purchase. (Frankly, each of the band's subsequent releases is so much better than Castaways and Cutouts that they render it the least essential of their first four albums.)

I know, I said that I would *try* to keep this short. I failed. Sorry.

Sharing the Blessing 16 juillet 2006
Par Bart King - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
There are some bands that one is happy to hear the first time, and there are others that make one feel blessed. Listening to this Decembrists' CD, I reveled in my good fortune; what a wonderful world we live in that can yield music this good.

The Decembrists' "sound" is very distinctive-- organs and accordions feature prominently, while singer/songwriter Colin Meloy's voice is slightly reminiscent of Robyn Hitchcock. Like Hitchcock, Meloy has a uniquely personal writing style, but where Hitchcock is deliriously surreal, Meloy's writing is structured around storytelling. Simply reading through the lyrics (which can be enjoyed in and of themselves), these tales of life's, er, castaways in various exotic time and place settings entertains. Listening to them, of course, is even better.

Throughout, the Decembrists walk a remarkable tightrope. Their music is quirky without being obtuse, literate without being pretentious, catchy with being cloying... I've been listening to a lot of good music this year, and CASTAWAYS might be the highlight. And the fact that they're from Portland is just icing on the cake. Hey, there's a song here called "Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect"! You know, I wrote a guidebook to Portland architecture... and you really don't care. :)

Listen to this CD.

Come Join the Youth and Beauty Brigade 24 mai 2003
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

Listening to this disk makes me wonder just how much good music I will never discover in my lifetime. I stumbled upon this disk from a review at cokemachineglow.com. I just happened to stumble upon this random website and read a random review submitted by a random guy. So I not so randomly bought this disk as a result. From the first listen I was hooked. Songs of soldiers, unfortunate souls, whores, highways, and many things I don't quite understand grace this album. Refreshing. Lovely. Wonderful choruses, excellent musicianship, extremely unique vocal and lyrics. This album is definitely something 'new' in a world of tired 'old' bulls#$t. Thanks Colin et al.
