*****
Ein Versuch war es, nachdem ich gute Kritiken in Zeitschriften gelesen hatte. Und er war erfolgreich.
*****
Vier Jahre ist es mittlerweile schon her, dass ihr Vorgängeralbum „The King Is Dead“ völlig überra-schend die Spitze der US-Billboardcharts erklomm. Mit „What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World“ haben sie nun ein introvertiertes, stellenweise gesellschaftspolitisches Album im für die Band typischen, folkigen Indierock-Stil veröffentlicht.

Die Decemberists bleiben sich mit ihrem neuen Album treu und schlagen dennoch eine neue Richtung ein. Statt mystischer und historischer Themen widmen sich die Songs nun dem alltäglichen Leben (Better Not Wake The Baby) und der Verarbeitung von Katastrophen und anderen schrecklichen Ereig-nissen, die in unseren Alltag eindringen. Umgesetzt wurde das allerdings mit weniger fetten Bombast, dafür aber mit mehr Folk- und Country-Elementen.

Was auffällt, ist Sänger Colin Meloy‘s Gabe, scheinbar mühelos einen fabelhaften Refrain nach dem anderen aus dem Ärmel zu schütteln. Dabei bleiben die Melodien überraschend eingängig und hu-schen durch eine Vielzahl an musikalischen Stilen.

"What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World" ist letztlich ein Album geworden, das sich wie ein Portfolio der bandeigenen Möglichkeiten vor dem Hörer ausbreitet. Es gibt den großzügigen Pomp, leichte Anflüge von Progrock und natürlich warmen, kratzigen Folk, der eindeutig tonangebend bleibt.
