The new Death Cab CD is released today. If their first single is any indication, the album is probably darker than its predecessors.
When I have spoken to friends and acquaintances regarding their thoughts about 'I Will Possess Your Heart,' the consensus seems to be general disapproval. Some individuals have stated that the song sounds too goth, while others have expressed annoyance at the relentlessly repetitive chorus.
I, on the other hand, have found myself really appreciating this new sound. Concededly, the lyrics do have a stalkerish quality to them, but the music imposes such a subtle level of perseverance just underneath the words, that I find the song to be simultaneously inspiring.
