It's here folks. The Decemberist's 7th studio album, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, was released yesterday. After a long 5 year drought, the wait is over. The 14 track album sticks to the bands indie-rock roots, but takes a more cheerful and more lively sound. It also seems to cover more ground. An album spanning this many tracks can be risky; you don't want to sound monotonous and the same, but it has payed off for The Decemberists. Each song brings something new, and the final product is wonderful. Take a listen, and watch out for them on tour this spring!
