First single "Soul Meets Body" is vintage post-Postal Service DCFC--sharp beats and hooks mixed gauzy and played against Gibbard's yearning tenor--but it's catchy like vintage New Order, and the song deserves to be huge. Most of the other tracks exude a familiar, mid-tempo dreaminess with the standout exception being the stark, acoustic "I Will Follow You Into the Dark." DCFC is typically quiet these days, its mood hushed and private, but in an increasingly routine, electro-folk way. But it's this song, the one that sees the band stripping away the studio trickery and going for real quiet, real privacy, that turns out the loudest. "I Will Follow..." carries like a whisper in a suddenly silent room. It stays with you. The song is major.
