Death Cab for Cuties classic album Transatlanticism, reissued for its 10th anniversary after being out of print for years. Four sides of high-quality 180-gram vinyl in a nice gatefold sleeve, with a 12-page full-color booklet. Comes with download of the album plus the newly released original demos, many of which are drastically different from the final versions.
This concept record explores the theme of long-distance romance. Ben Gibbard's trade mark, poignant lyrics are somber and focus on the need to be loved. Transatlanticism has more depth than any of the bands previous albums, they have never sounded more cohesive. Chris Walla was expanding his scope and ambition as a producer, intersecting with Ben Gibbard, who was doing the same as a writer.
