“KINTSUGI” has been welcomed with widespread critical applause, with Stereogum praising it in a recent Cover Story as “inevitably elegiac…full of classic Death Cab structures and melodies, but with new little elements that still sets it apart. Synths and a rhythmic focus play a large role, but feel incorporated seamlessly into the band’s pre-existing aesthetic…” “A return to what made many fans fall in love with the group,” said NOISEY, as WYNC’s Soundcheck declared “KINTSUGI” to be “a classic Death Cab record, if such a thing exists.
Over 11 tracks, lead singer and songwriter Ben Gibbard examines heartache, loss, absence – and dresses these themes in driving, occasionally soaring pop garb with impeccable sheen.” “The band continues its penchant for thoughtful poetic confessionals,” noted the New York Observer, adding, “The music flows like a well-written novel, telling the group’s latest chapter beautifully.” “The arrangements are leaner than before,” wrote the Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot, “creating a desolate atmosphere that puts Gibbard’s carefully measured voice and lyrics upfront…The band’s subtle, painterly contributions should not be underestimated…The background hum of electronics, the ticking percussion, the sinewy guitars, the vaporous, often wordless backing vocals give the narratives plenty of room to breathe.” “A sparsely textured…heart-wrenchingly honest record,” wrote Rolling Stone, while A.V. Club noted how “KINTSUGI” “blends the newer sounds of the group’s recent output with the warmth and accessibility of its earlier work, which makes for a fine cocktail.” Perhaps Magnet summed it up best: “With the new ‘KINTSUGI,’ Death Cab might have made the best record of its 17-year career.”
