"King Decemberist Colin Meloy's love for the heydays of British folk-rock has always served as the foundation on which he builds his crafty, idiosyncratic chamber pop, but on Hazards of Love he's taken that bedrock and built his own version of Stonehenge. A 17-song suite about a girl named Margaret, shapeshifters, forest queens, and fairytale treachery, Hazards of Love is ambitious, pretentious, obtuse, often impenetrable, and altogether pretty great." – All Music Guide

After the train-wreck pressing that was "The Crane Wife", I had serious reservations about buying this on vinyl. No need to worry....the pressing problems have been corrected, and this sounds great.
