Sure, the last Death Cab album did not receive the same warm reviews as the previous albums. And sure, we were told that this album "would sound like nothing Death Cab has ever put out", only to find that it sound exactly like every album Death Cab has ever put out. It's not my favorite Death Cab album, but it has really grown on me. Certainly, it is better than 95% of the other crap out there. This song is my favorite on the album. The storytelling and songwriting is brilliant.
