    For lyrics, I think Colin Meloy is utterly amazing. I have been unable to stop listening to the haunting story of their new album "Hazards of Love" for a week now. Colin Meloy is the lead singer and songwriter of The Decemberists. They have great music and the lyrics are stick with you for quite a while after you listen to them.
