I'll Be Your Girl, the group's eighth album in 17 years, doesn't upend every weapon in The Decemberists' arsenal: Colin Meloy still writes disarming, thematically ambitious songs while maintaining a thick fatalistic streak. But the record does steer its sound in unexpected directions, thanks in part to new producer John Congleton, who's known for his dense and busy arrangements. Especially in the album's first half, the new songs often revolve around the smeared-out thrum and menacing pulse of Jenny Conlee's synths, which conjure images of many '70s and '80s pop stalwarts. As a lyricist, Meloy seems emboldened on I'll Be Your Girl, especially in dark, self-explanatorily titled barnburners like 'Everything Is Awful' - surely the jauntiest song ever to bear that title - and 'We All Die Young.' The latter is especially rousing, with its stomping/clapping percussion, a chanting children's chorus and a saxophone solo. Elsewhere, the ambition that led The Decemberists to record a rock opera resurfaces in 'Rusalka, Rusalka/The Wild Rushes,' which builds from a plodding dirge to a grandiose, satisfying epic in the course of more than eight minutes.
