The Decemberists The Crane Wife 2006 Review by Mike

9.0
Eclectic Prog Rock/Independent
Awesome. Hard to describe what sets this apart from other prog concept albums. Aside from the flawless musicianship, the eclectic instrumentation and all the other trimmings you would expect, I guess for me it is the really sinister humor. If you are the type of listener who will pay attention to the lyrics, proceed with caution, and take them with a grain of (sea) salt.
