Described as the "most pastoral, rustic record they've ever made" by Douglas Wolk of Rolling Stone, the album reached No. 1 on the . Billboard 200 chart for the week ending February 5, 2011. The song "This Is Why We Fight" reached number 19 on the . Alternative Songs Chart, while the song "Down by the Water" also charted in the United States
For all its rural pedigrees, The King Is Dead is still a clean and meticulously crafted album; the production is smooth and the performances are unnervingly error-free. Consequently, it's missing a little vulnerability- the best Americana records tend to feel a little lawless, but the Decemberists just can't quite relinquish control.
What’s remarkable is how much richness and beauty the group has folded into the 40-minute album: The melodies are sticky, the harmonies sumptuous, the arrangements (centering on guitars, fiddle, accordion, harmonica and pedal steel) unfussy. Mastermind Colin Meloy hasn’t abandoned his lust for Scrabble-champ words ( gabardine, plinth ) and fantastical narratives.

David Rawlings and Gillian Welch also join the party on a number of tracks, lending their instantly recognizable voices to two of the album’s finest moments, the Wildflowers-era, Tom Petty-inspired Don’t Carry It All and the lovely, Paul Simon-esque June Hymn - Meloy and Welch, the former a Montana-born Anglophile and the latter a California girl. with a fetish for dust bowl Appalachia - harmonize nicely, canceling out each other’s vocal affectations. It’s by far the clearest and most commercial collection of tunes the band has amassed to date, but it’s also the least interesting.

From the opening harmonica bluster of Don’t Carry It All to the record’s pastoral recording location to the album cover of looming black pines, The King Is Dead is thematically nestled in the backwoods. Gone are the band’s tavern orchestra instrumentation and elaborate Gorey-esque tales
