Well as I had told you earlier, Death Cab for Cutie released their newest album entitled, Narrow Stairs on May 13th, 2008.  The album was an ultimate success, and in my humble opinion, the best one made by the band.  While their release before Narrow Stairs was amazing, the new album is just as good if not better.  The album does have some similar comparisons to the release before (Plans).  

The first, and lone single off the most recent album by Death Cab for Cutie was alright.  Not the best song on the album, I can tell you guys that much.  The song is featured at number two on the track listing, but while that may be the case, the single itself is very long.  The radio edit is much shorter, and pleasing to the senses, but if you are listening to the album edition of this song, then you can get lost.  I personally did not like the extended album version due to the length, and how long it took to get to the actual song.  While the instruments playing until the singing begins is pretty good, you tend to lose focus on what you are listening to, and sort of get lost in the song (and I don't mean lost in a good way).  All in all, the single was pretty good, and it really does reflect the way the album sounds in a whole.  In fact, now that I think of it, I ended up buying the album in hopes of it sounding similar to the first and only single thus far to be released.  If you have not hear of DCFC, or have not given their new stuff a listen, go out and listen to the single, and if you like it, then pick up the album ASAP!
