    The Decemberists - Castaways and Cutouts
    I received my copy of this CD from Amazon yesterday. Oh yeah! I love it! I just placed my order for Picturesque (Her Majesty was going to delay my order by two weeks, so I put that one on hold until they get it in stock). After hearing C&C and The Crane Wife, this band has earned Blind Faith status from me. I don't know how they flew under my radar for so long.

    Oh, wait a minute, yes I do... Several times I had a copy of Picturesque in my hands, but then decided that I didn't want to pay the $24.99 that the CD stores were asking for it, here. It's unfortunate that somebody feels the need to overprice some CDs so much, that it discourages buyers from discovering new bands. Bad economics. And unfortunate for the band who could be selling far more albums.

    Don't forget Five Songs (which is actually six songs). In fact . . .

    Thanks. But I found 'em for only $17.99 on Amazon.ca. Hmmm. With the exchange, that's even cheaper than your hole-in-the-wall. :ciappa:
