The Decemberists | Picaresque & M.I.A. | Arular

It’s finally here. It seems like we’ve been talking about the Picaresque leak for ages. As of today, your MP3s go from ‘illegaly downloaded leaked version of the album’ to plain old “illegaly downloaded version of the album.’

Tiny Mix Tapes celebrates the release with a perfect score for Picaresque….

The Decemberists somehow just get better and better with every release. From 5 Songs to Castaways and Cutouts to Her Majesty, each record trumps the last one in terms of quality, scope, and praise. So when it came time to release their third full-length, Colin Meloy and company did exactly what everyone thought they’d do: released their best and most ambitious album to date.”

Stylus gave it a B+

Rolling Stone voted lowest with only 3.5 stars.

The Decemberists are in need of financial assistance. It’s time to pay for the album. Order Picaresque.

Pitchfork, who seems to stick to the ‘one major release per day’ method, passed on Picaresque today, in favor of M.I.A.’s, actually released, Arular. With an 8.6, it’s the newest addition to their ‘best of’ list. No surprises there.

Order Arular from Insound.

Happy World Water Day
