I have to disagree with you on this one. The lead singer's voice is incredibly grating. At first I thought the album was ok, and then after a couple of listens I vowed to never listen to it again after I realized that my rising anger was due to Colin Meloy's whiny screech.

Speaking of whiny screeching...I was trying to add another review on a wicked album:

The Second Stage Turbine Blade by Coheed & Cambria.

I received an "oops...we cannot process" message....do you know why?

I KNOW WHY...I WASN'T SIGNED IN!

Snap!

While I can see why you might think that, Amanie. I digress, I completely love this album. Eli, the Barrow Boy is amazing. The Mariner's Revenge Song is odd, yet compelling.

This is an album that you will either love or hate, there is no in between.

I agree that this is one of the best albums out in a long time.  The Mariner's Revenge Song instantly gets you stompin' your feet, clappin' your hands, and chuggin' moonshine until you have scurvy.  One of the best "story songs" out there, which is most appreciated while following along in the provided lyric book.  Finally, a band other than Weird Al to utilize the majestry that is the accordion.

nicely put....anytime you can mention "chuggin' moonshine" and "Weird Al" in the same context you are definitely cookin' with gas.
