Till The Water Is
All Long Gone
THE DECEMBERISTS What A Terrible World,
What A Beautiful World (Rough Trade)
The last album from The Decemberists was OK, but for me it could never match the majesty of The Hazards Of Love, and so I wasnt really expecting too much from this one. A pleasant surprise, then, to find that it includes great melodic pop songs such as Till The Water Is All Long Gone and Easy Come, Easy Go, alongside some harder rockers like Cavalry Captain. A very welcome return to form.
