The Decemberists – The Hazards of Love

March 22, 2009

My only fear before hearing this album for the first time was that perhaps The Decemberists‘ Colin Meloy has run out of good ideas, that the poetic moments such as those on Picaresque, which was my first encounter with the band, will begin to repeat in a parodic familiarity. None of this is fortunately the case, as The Hazards of Love sees them moving on and stretching in a brilliant… rock opera. Yes, and there’s nothing wrong with that, because it works. Totally recommended.
