Death Cab for Cutie’s new album, Thank You for Today, arrived from Amazon yesterday. I ripped it last night and it’s playing as I write this.
Initial impressions are very good. “Gold Rush” is a real stand-out. It’s no surprise this track is the album’s first single.
My only real disappointment is the production of the album in regards to dynamic range. It’s yet another victim of the loudness wars. The album as a whole scores a poor DR6.
Even despite the terrible dynamic range, my impression of the material itself is very positive after my first listen.
