I'm a little out of practice.
But I have to start somewhere. The first prediction of the new era is the new Decemberists album, The King is Dead.
Now I'll admit, I hate this band. I find it boring, and Colin Meloy's voice makes me want to do bad things.
But this new album is apparently country-informed.
Which does sound promising.
Unfortunately I don't think it will be the good type of country-informed. I'm pretty sure this album will continue the Decemberists brand of what I like to call douchebag-indie.
But it isn't about me. It's about the rating.
I'm predicting a 7.1.
Actual rating: 7.2. Point differential: 0.1.
