Decemberists - King Rat
Private Life
Why are the Decemberists so popular? With all the top ten of 2006 lists coming out lately, it seems every reviewer has these guys there. Their music grates on me like that band with the bee kid from the early 90s.

Thank you. I have asked myself this same question over and over again. My musical tastes encompass several genres, but some of the crap that seems to be popular these days (in another words, big on KEXP), makes me want to jam pencils in my ears.

I like their first album, but the new one Crane Wife puts me to sleep. The singer's voice is starting to get tiresome.

There is no denying the good musicianship of this band, but they really are a bit too clever.
