Standout Tracks: Black Sun, The Ghosts of Beverly Drive, Binary Sea
Death Cab for Cutie led by Ben Gibbard and no longer including guitarist turned producer Chris Walla is known for weaving lyrical excellence combined with head-bobbing tunes. This album isn't their best effort, but it's still pretty great. It seems to focus largely on the end of Ben Gibbard's relationship with Zoe Deschanel and as a result his disillusionment with Hollywood. It's a good record overall. Very listenable. Here's the official video for "The Ghosts of Beverly Hills":
