Comments on: Track Review: Death Cab for Cutie – I Will Possess Your Heart Mon, 09 Nov 2015 02:04:23 +0000 hourly 1 By: michael haggerty Tue, 15 Apr 2008 00:42:51 +0000 Great song. Dan , I live next door to Wayne Coyle who’s forgotten more about music than you will ever know.

By: Mr. Mojo Tue, 08 Apr 2008 23:38:43 +0000 Dan, spot on with your review here. I’ve been a follower of their music since the beginning and am convinced the correlation with their success has been inversely proportionate to their creativity in songwriting. Plans and Transatlanticism are DCFC’s weakest showings, though they hit on some songs it’s not the collective effort seen on their earlier work.

When I listened to “I will possess your heart”, I was stupefied in how cool the track sounded and like you feel they drifted away from a very enveloping first 4.3 minutes of bliss. It’s still a great song but now Ben’s vocals become an appendage to the song rather than the main force. Earlier works had me waiting to hear his vocals, now I tense up hoping for the best.

Just, please, stop telling a freaking whiny story about how he wishes he were lovers with someone. Blech.

By: qualler Tue, 25 Mar 2008 23:20:17 +0000 I completely agree with your assessment of this song — it does take the more interesting aspects of Plans, like “Different Names” (which I thought of as a highlight as well) and then Gibbard totally ruins it.

second, are you complete without taste? differrent names is nothing compared to this song
do you know anything music? even pop music? this is bad writing.
write something worth hearing some day, then you can bitch about something a real songwriter like gibbard wrote
i’m not being a fanboy for the sake of it – i wouldnt defend a lot of plans… but are you fuckin kidding me? have you even heard the song? have you heard heir catalogue? where the hell are you coming from.
put the song on and don’t decide that you have to be cool and rip on a good band thats gotten popular
listen to the music and then sit down and pass judgment – and be civil. for fucks sake, who the hell are you?
