the king is dead

Today, the new Decemberists album was released- the king is dead.  I have to say, I wasn't as impressed as I thought I'd be.  I'm not quite sure what it is though... maybe it's just because it's so different from their other stuff.  But I do like the slightly shorter songs- especially compared to 12+ minute long "the island" from the crane wife album.  Needless to say, it's a good beginning to a wonderfully musical 2011.  I've attached some of the songs below for your listening pleasure.  

I think my favorite is 'june hymn' but I couldn't figure out how to get a good recording of it on here.  Sorry!  This stuff is still so new to me :)
