    Death Cab for Cutie is an American alternative rock band, formed in Bellingham, Washington in 1997. The band comprises Ben Gibbard (vocals, guitar, piano), Nick Harmer (bass) and Jason McGerr (drums). In 2014, founding guitarist and producer Chris Walla announced that he would be departing from the band after recording their eighth studio album, Kintsugi.

    Re-listening to a lot of Death Cab today, really solid catalog -- but man, Plans is just something special.

    Love this band so much, Transatlanticism is so very perfect.

    me too. No Room in Frame in particular is wonderful.

    No Room In Frame is the one I'd say breaks into the realm of favorite tracks. Binary Sea maybe.

    Seeing Transatlanticism live was the highlight of my 2015. Never did listen to Kintsugi

    I haven't gone back to Kintsugi often but I still really like it. I also LOVED Narrow Stairs though.

    Plans is easily their best. Transatlanticism is a good second.

    Transatlanticism, Facts, and Photo are top tier. Love em all though

    Learning to love Facts over several years has been so immensely satisfying

    Yeah, this. I like plans and narrow stairs a decent amount but those three are perfect.

    Transatlanticism > Plans > Facts > Stairs > Photo > Kintsugi > Codes > Airplanes

    There we go, my first ranking of the new site. Felt good.

    NS is my second favorite behind Trans. Love it. Kind of darker and moodier. Plans and Photo are about tied. The rest is fine stuff but I don't listen often.

    @jordalsh Also still love Kintsugi. It's such an easy, enjoyable listen for me.

    My opinion on Kintsugi hasn't changed much. I still think it's bland and boring.

    Narrow Stairs is still my favorite, and I've come to enjoy Codes and Keys a lot more.

    Transatlanticism is one of my favorite albums of all time. That album is borderline perfect. Love Facts and Photo as well. Those three are top notch albums.

    I like Plans, Narrow Stairs, and Airplanes, but none of them really grab me the way those other three do. Kintsugi is alright. I find it to be pretty mediocre overall, but I love No Room In Frame and The Ghosts Of Beverly Drive.

    I just stay away from Codes And Keys now.

    I listen to Transatlanticism in the middle of the morning Jan 1st every year. This year was while walking home a ridiculous distance whole being very drunk. It's a good routine.

    Listening to Trans, and essentially this band, for the first time right now. 3 minutes in - so far so good.

    I think the first four songs on Kintsugi are wonderful, and then the record drops off the cliff from there, which is a massive bummer.
