Our Review

While Ben Gibbard receives most of the attention as the writer and singer of these earnest songs of heartbreak and displacement, the Seattle band's guitarist and producer Chris Walla deserves to be acknowledged for giving Death Cab for Cutie the expansive, widescreen sound that separates them from the ever-crowded emo ranks. Transatlanticism, the band's fourth studio album, is a major step for the group. Gibbard's songwriting is as hook-filled and tear-jerking as ever. He sounds like Elliot Smith funneled through the Zombies' Colin Blunstone and Pernice Brothers' Joe Pernice. But it's the extra layer of guitar and keyboard washes of “The New Year,” “Tiny Vessels,” and “The Sound of Settling” that kick-start these songs into permanent resonance. The added pillow of sound creates dream-like prospects for the group,but they wisely choose tokeep their mojo workin', operating from a position of both strength and repose. Rarely is rainy-day music this potent and loud.

Customer Reviews

Quite Simply My Favorite Album EVER (5 stars)

I was no Death Cab fan for a long, long, time. I heard Soul Meets Body on the radio, but i was not too impressed. One day I decided to buy "Plans". It was a pretty good album, but once again, not too impressed. But i heard of an earlier album, Transatlanticism. I bought it a month ago, and can not stop listening. It is good at first listen, great at second listen, and after that, i became obsessed. I listen to the whole thing throu

One for Rainy Days, Introspective Moods, and Broken Hearts. (5 stars)

Words cannot describe the majesty, splendor, and PERFECTION that is Death Cab for Cutie's lush and beautiful eighth record release, "Transatlanticism". While a major theme of the album seems to be distances and travel, I would also say it is a work centered around on perfect balance. The lyrics are sophisiticated and elegant, yet unassuming and humble. Ben Gibbard offers, once again, an honest and wistful persepctive on simple,

One of the Best Albums Ever Written! (5 stars)

This album was a step forward in history when it was made. Every song will touch you in one way or another. There are fun songs, sad songs, and songs just to please you. And what's better? "For a limited time" it's only 8 bucks!


Biography

Formed: 1997 in Bellingham, WA
Genre: Alternative
Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Death Cab for Cutie's rise from small-time solo project to Grammy-nominated rock band is one of indie rock's greatest success stories. Launched in the bayside college town of Bellingham, Washington, the group was originally a side project for singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard, an engineering student at Western Washington University who split his time between school and music. Taking a break from his local power pop band, Pinwheel, Gibbard began recording an album's worth of solo material during the summer…
