Transatlanticism is 10 years old – WTF???
So in connection with my last post today marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Death Cab for Cutie’s “Transatlanticism,” which is probably one of my top favorite albums for me. At it release the album was a huge turning point in popular culture and on the music scene in general. People had started to move away from the radio friendly songs and Top Forty, we were starting to grow-up. This album has stood the test of 10 years and still sounds relevant and as beautiful as it did 10 years ago. I was a sophomore in college when this came out. This album was first for me, In that not only did all my art school friends like it, but my fraternity brothers (which never happened before). It was great to re-listen to this album as a whole (which I haven’t done in awhile) and rediscover some of these forgotten gems.
