6/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 7th June 2015
Death Cab For Cutie took their name from the song of the same name by The Bonzo Dog Do-Dah Band, well I assume that’s the case unless there’s been some sort of massive coincidence. As alluded to in the above review, their 2001 album, “The Photo Album” is probably their best – certainly the one that got them noticed above the underground. “Transatlanticism” is the follow-up and starts like it means business with the melodic anthem “New Year”. The pace is slowed as it is followed up by “Lightness” which is delicate and beautiful. “Expo ‘86” is another stand out with a chorus that is reminiscent of Fountains Of Wayne. “We Looked Like Giants” is good and “A Lack Of Colour” is one of the better songs with it’s lovely vocal harmonies. All-in-all, this is okay. This might not mean much to a lot of people but when I think of melodic American indie rock I immediately think of The Lemonheads and their effortlessly brilliant take on it. That said, Death Cab For Cutie don’t quite match up. Whilst not being a fan of “best ofs” per se, I might prefer listening to a Death Cab For Cutie collection rather than listening to full albums waiting for the good stuff.
