    *Raises hand* DCFC is one of the best indie bands around (if not THE BEST), everyone should seriously go out and buy ever cd by this wonderful band, I honestly havent heard a single song by the that got less than 4/5 in my mind.Its not just the beauty of their lyrics for the matter, but the music in itself is wonderful. I would be extrmely intrested in hearign a full lenght Instrumential EP by them. The vocals are just so grand, "Title Track" is just an incredibly clever song

    eft uninspired by the crust of railroad earth that touched the lead to the pages of yout manuscript. i took my thumb off the concrete and saved up all my strength to hammer pillars for a picket fence. it wasn't quiet what it seemed: a lack of pleasantries (my able body isn't what it used to be). i must admist i was charmed by your advances: your advantage left me helplessly into you.
    talking how the group had begun to splinter and i could taste your lipstick on the filter...
    i tried my best to keep my distance from your dress but call-response overturns conviction every time. my memory cannot recall: a wave of alcohol we shared a cigarette and shaved the hours off.
    lushing with the hallway concregation, my best judgement signed its resignation.
    i rushed this. we moved too fast, and tripped into the guestroom.


    i could taste your lipstick on the filter..., that has to be one of the best song lines Ive ever heard in my life, EXTREMELY sexy.

    If you enjoy DCFC i reccomend checkign these following bands


    The Postal Service
    Interpol
    The Shins
    Snow Patrol

    An Indie band. I personally didn't like them at all, but I listened to the Soul Meets Body tune, and I became obessed with them. There music is soft and influenctial to me. They are pretty good, and I will have to check out there other albums. Any Cutie fans?

    *raises hand* I didn't like Plans that much actually, but I love Transatlanticism. I'm driving down to Vancouver to see them in October.

    I have everything by the band. I love their intellegent music and their great songcrafting. Though Im slightly dissappointed by their latest effort; Plans. It's a fine, solid record with the usual great tunes by DCFC (though the songwriting is the weakest thus far by the band). The issue is that it seems they are falling comfortablly with their style and becoming less and less outgoing and challeneging leading to them being predictable. Also, another major complaint I have in regards to this record, is the fact it has no flow. Previous DCFC material was a straight shootout listen from start to finish. I find myself skipping alot of times while listening to Plans.

    As I said, this is still a rather solid record, filled with great indie pop tracks. But it feels as if the band isnt quite sure what direction it should take, resulting in an off balance record. But still worthy of picking up.

    My ratings for these lads:-

    Something About Airplanes 4/5
    You Can Sing these Songs With Chords 4/5
    We Have The Facts And We Are Voting Yes! 4.5/5
    Forbidden Love EP 3/5
    The Photo Album 4.25/5
    Transatlanticism 4.7/5
    Plans 2.5/5 - 3/5 (depending on my mood)

    <3 Ben Gibbard.

    Transatlanticism and The Photo Album are my favourite albums.

    I like Plans, but I agree with moe's argumentation for liking it less than their previous material.

    best tracks on Plans:

    Marching Bands of Manhattan
    Soul Meets Body
    Summer Skin (great bass line)
    What Sara Said

    oh god dont get me started.I friiggan love the feel to the bassline so much..The firsttime i heard it i was just like wow.It feels like I rarely here a bass playing by itself.its just so damn sexy.I want to play bass so much more than guitar.

    I loved the piano in what sar said and brothers in a hotel bed.There real good parts of certain songs i just think all together its not as powerful as their past works.

    I love Plans, actually.

    And I'm listening to Death Cab right now. I <33333 my shirt. XD

    Marching Bands of Manhattan, Crooked Teeth, I Will Follow You Into The Dark, and Someday You Will Be Loved are my favorites. =3 (from Plans, that is. <____<)

    I'm a Death Cab fan too, but i thought "Plans" wasn't great. It is a produced album and you know what happens... only song i could find that had an impact was "I will follow you into the dark"

    I still have to listen to their songs from their new album, "Plans!" I've seen them live and they were awesome! I love Ben Gibbard's voice so much! I truly admire their "Transatlanticism" album too.

    Death Cab is one of my favorite bands at the moment. Transatlanticism was amazing, and why I started liking them - starting with We Looked Like Giants. Plans is actually my favorite at the moment, just so many mind blowing songs. I Will Follow You into the Dark is easily one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, and Soul Meets Body has the ability to make me upbeat no matter what, temporarily. They have such moving and poetic lyrics, Marching Bands of Manhattan is such a vivid image, and loaded with symbolism. Their depth, their lyrics, and their soothing instrumentals just puts me in a trance sometimes.

    10/10. :tem

    I actually have been a fan for quite some time. I think that they peaked as a group around the Photo Album. I find the new album a bit dissapointing. Seems a though they lost their "indie" sound when they signed to Atlantic.
