A subtle shift in the current of one of greatest albums in the Death Cab catalogue.
I chose those words specifically: “a subtle shift in the current.” Why? Because, as anyone who’s been spent a considerable amount of time knows, Transatlanticism already has a steady flow. The sequencing is such that sets of two and three songs bleed into one another, which provides a challenge.
So, instead of looking at all 11 tracks separately, I paid mind to the sets, as it were. What I ended up with is a listening experience that I think keeps in step with the mission of Resequenced–to listen to albums we know and love through new ears–but also keeps in the spirit of the original work.
At first glance, it may look like it didn’t take much. But believe me, this one was harder than I thought it would be. Let me know what you think and, as always, feel free to suggest an album for a future edition of RadioBDC Resequenced.
