So here it is, finally: The Decemberists’ latest album. We’re prickling with anticipation, and figured, “Hey, since you can listen to the full thing, why muck this up with a review right now?” Decide for yourself whether The Decemberists’ “The King is Dead” deserves to be on our year-end list of 2011. And feel free to post comments galore here; just keep in mind it’s only going to be up until the release on Jan. 18, so be sure your listen in before you crack open that (warning: “Pulp Fiction” reference) “Bad Motherf*#!er” wallet. Here’s the link to the NPR stream:
