This is to go along with my other review. Apparently there was a limit to how much I could write so I had to cut these song reviews out. Probably because this album is so great that I could not stop writing about it.

The first song is Lightness. Now this song here is more their slow and dramatic style. Combined with the vocal stylings of the great Ben Gibbard. The main hook in this song is the "Uw-wha-oh"'s that are dabbled throughout. Every single time I listen to this song I am singing those parts to myself all day.

The Sound of Settling is a very good song, but in no way compares to Title and Registration. It does contain a fresher sound like TaR, but is a little to fast pace to showcase it as much. Still a decent listen.

Another great in A Lack of Color. Such a soothing sound will be coming out of your speakers. This is the type of song that you will listen to and remind you of something or somebody. Classic.
Probably the best album Death Cab for Cutie has ever produced. So many songs on this one have been categorized as their "Greats". Almost not one bad song on this entire album. Probably marking the exact point in history when Death Cab for Cutie really took off and made a name for themselves. With songs like Title and Registration, Lightness, and The Sound of Settling all coming from multiple singles, jam packs this album with classics.

The first song is Title and Registration. Again, one of the greatest Death Cab has ever produced. Really and unbelievable song, it contains their style but with more of a fresher taste. Perfect melody that will make you never want to stop listening to this song. Ever.

Tiny Vessels, just thinking about this song gives me the shivers. What a fantastic slow song that escalates into a faster, more impacting song. But then they brings it back to the beginning to give you a second dosage of what you loved in the first place.

We Looked Like Giants is a very confusing song. Starts out slow, then gradually adds instruments until they get to the breaking point. Personally, I feel this is one of the best vocal performances by Ben Gibbard. Definitely a must have for any DC4C fan.

Finally, my personal favorite of all-time by Death Cab for Cutie, Transatlanticism. Just such a powerful song, with a long instrumental at the end followed by Gibbard's famous repetition cues. Just really unbelievable to hear this song, especially for the first time. I'm well over 500 and I still adore it.

With all of these songs, there is no wrong turn to be made with this album. There are a couple of other decent songs that I did not mention, but these are the main ones. With this much talent produced in one album, it is hard that this is just the beginning stepping stone for their most powerful music to come. Listen to it as long as you can.
