Drowned in Sound

They are theatre as much as they are music: embracing vaudeville and folk in the old-style knife a-slashing, maids a-weeping, plots a-stirring, love conquers all sense.


All in all, We All Raise Our Voices ... is a fun listen, and one that really makes the case for the Decemberists as a powerful force, despite what you might have felt about those last two studio albums. 

A.V. Club

The Decemberists remain an energetic, underrated live unit, though the versions of the band’s more straightforward tracks don’t vary radically from their studio versions, nor add much to them.

Beats Per Minute

Listening to We All Raise Our Voices was a pleasant surprise, and made me want to immediately go back and revisit the original records again


We All Raise Our Voices to the Air sounds less like a tour document than a greatest hits, struggling to sum up the band's career and find some new direction forward.
