* {{Shotacon}}: Possibly "The Chimbley Sweep". It's not completely clear whether the Sweep is still young enough for it to be shota territory by the third verse. He probably is, though, going by the fact that he's still addressed as "urchin".

Colin Meloy, Chris Funk, Jenny Conlee, Nate Query, and John Moen form the band's current rotation, with Meloy, Funk and Conlee being the only original members remaining in the band (the band's best known former member is drummer/vocalist Rachel Blumberg who was a member of the band between ''Her Majesty'' and ''Picaresque''). The songs, penned and sung by Meloy, vary from quirky, introspective pop about filicide to rollicking ballads about pirates and gypsies. (There is a disproportionate amount of drowning.) Meloy often employs the narrative form, creating baroque tales from the perspective of lovers, soldiers and sailors.

* NewSoundAlbum: ''The King Is Dead'' brings with it an Americana sound best described as BruceSpringsteen gone [[CountryMusic Country]] (that steel guitar!). Seriously. Other albums do exhibit subtle changes, but none presented as big of a change as this one.
