At the center of every album is a musical thesis. Death Cab for Cutie's "Plans" is filled with songs I wish I wrote. They drip with relatability and poetry about the process of aging. As the album progresses forward, it moves like pain in motion. As a 32 year old man, I never listen to this album the same way twice. There is always something new to learn and/or something in my own life I can find in each song. This is why I wish I had written these songs. They are built to withstand the test of time and discover a new audience with each passing generation. If you are a songwriter, I don't think you can ask for much more than that.
Be good to each other,
