The Decemberists - The Hazards Of Love (2009)

The Hazards of Love is an hour long rock opera if you will, an album-long narrative with a denser sound and more guitars that tells the forlorn tale of a woman named Margaret. The album solidifies The Decemberists standing as one of the most innovative creative forces in music today. They will debut the album live in its entirely at SXSW in March. Lavender Diamonds Becky Stark and My Brightest Diamonds Shara Worden deliver the lead vocals for
the female characters, while My Morning Jackets Jim James, Robyn Hitchcock and the Spinanes Rebecca Gates appear in supporting roles.
