Album Review:
The Decemberists-The King is Dead

I have listened to The Decemberists' The King is Dead endeavouring to get a sense of why this band should be treated seriously.    If this were an R.E.M or Tom Petty cover band, I'm sure they'd be pretty good in a hotel bar in Eugene, Oregon, but as a band that wants to sell fresh albums and gig dates, they need to revisit their tedious sound.    Maybe some peyote and a month long vision quest might help.    Not only is the king dead, so is this album.
