New 'Shins' was worth the 4-year wait! Was not thrilled by James Mercer's collab with Danger Mouse (Broken Bells) from 2010. Was worried they'd be carried over. They weren't. For 2 listens, it's almost as good as "Wincing the Night Away."
Looking forward to listening to that this weekend. For some reason I've stayed away from the Broken Bells project. Now I know why. Bob said so.
Bad news/good news.
For the second time, while listening to The Shins new album, I fell asleep. This is in no way indicative of the music, but more about my energy level. I really like what I've heard so far.
The good news is that the third time listening to this CD will feel like the first!
