The Decemberists 'Hazards of Love'

The Decemberists 'Hazards of Love'

A truly lovely record, 'Hazards of Love' brings the rock opera format bang up to date. Drawing on influences as diverse as Emerson, Lake & Palmer, The Incredible String Band and Fairport Convention, this record tells the tale of a maiden knocked up by a shape–shifting beast who may be her future husband. There's also a psychotic queen and three revenge–seeking ghost kids to keep a look out for.

Grab a seat in front of the fire, stoke your Meerschaum pipe and take a trip.


On your advice I've just

On your advice I've just finished listening to this. masterpiece. really really lovely sound. proper rock opera and all. not quite sure why I've ignored the Decemberists for so long. unforgivable.
