I picked up the new Decemberists Album this weekend The Crane Wife
. I must say that I like it but it is a departure from a bit of what they are known for. The new album has a much more rock feel to it rather than the old timey, folky feel of the older stuff. While I was looking forward to accordians and such the new album fills the void will heavier guitar riffs and as always interesting story lines in the songs. By no means will long time fans be disappointed nor will first time listeners.
