The Hazards Of Love

The Hazards Of Love Released: 23/03/09 by The Decemberists

This is a refreshingly substantial listen in a culture plagued by throwaway blog hits. The album plots an extravagant tale rooted in ancient language and imagery of a woman ravaged by her lover who is able to change his form between animal and man. As can be expected from any Decemberists release, the result is both musically and lyrically rich with elaborate orchestrations accompanying cleverly crafted plot developments. The Decemberists are joined on this record by Lavender Diamond's Becky Stark, My Brightest Diamond's Shara Worden and cameos from Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Robyn Hitchcock and the Spinanes' Rebecca Gates.
