Rolling Stone (p.66) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he album is as dark as anything the band has done....[T]he most indelible moment is 'Grapevine Fires,' a minor-key processional framed by churchy organ and electric piano."Spin (p.48) - Ranked #25 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "Every album gets slightly more refined, with Ben Gibbard and Co. stretching their sound..."Entertainment Weekly (p.121) - "Death Cab's ebullience makes this a redemptive work about sadness.
