Another solid Death Cab album

I don't get the bad reviews for Codes and Keys. Yeah, it's not like Transatlanticism, but neither is any other Death Cab album.

If you're new to Death Cab, I do recommend starting with some of their older albums, as this is a little bit of a change from Death Cab's core sound.
