Because of this, Down the River of Golden Dreams is easily the group's most cohesive record to date, and solidifies Okkervil River as a band worthy of scrutiny. The fluidity of Sheff's thoughtful lyrics align with his ability to play with tension, which comes across rather nicely on the jaunty "It Ends with a Fall," the dynamic epic "The War Criminal Rises and Speaks," and the delicate "Maine Island Lovers.
Okkervil River perfectly deploys healthy doses of Hammond organ, Rhodes piano, Mellotrons, and Wurlitzer over the course of the album. Sometimes, as on "It Ends with a Fall", these instruments serve to counteract the jaunty musings of the track to retain its dredged moodiness. On most of the album, though, acoustic guitars and slight percussion wilt beneath keys and sprinkled pedal steel flavorings. Tracks like "Maine Island Lovers" and "Yellow" largely forgo involved arrangements, but creep and crawl through Sheff's heartbroken narratives with spacious good.
