    I love the new single!


    It's pretty rocking for their standards.. Reminds me of The Who.

    There aren't any yet? Bummer... I think this tour will be pretty extensive so I wouldn't get too worried! More dates should pop up.

    I liked that the tickets for the Minneapolis show weren't sold on Ticketmaster. :thumbup:

  • I am really jazzed about this album. I doubt it will match my favorite album of 2012 to-date (Van Halen), but if it comes even close on the awesomeness scale, I will be thrilled.

    I have all their other albums and like them all a lot...so fingers crossed!

    i posted this in the lookalikes thread but doesn't James Mercer look like Kevin Spacey? :lol:

    It's going to be leagues better than Van Halen. But, I hate Van Halen so... Haha :lol:

    Heh.

    Well, yeah...if you don't like them to begin with, it's a bit hard to make a comparison. :lol:

    But I'm pretty much a hard-rockin' kind of girl. ;) And most Van Halen fans will tell you that the new album is the best one they have put out in a really long time. I personally think it's their best one since '1984'...which is their best album. So you can imagine how thrilled I am with them right now.

    But to put it in Shins terms...if this upcoming album is as good as Chutes Too Narrow, I will be one happy camper. :D Chutes, for me, is The Shins best work to-date...and if this one meets or exceeds that standard, I will be very, very pleased.

    I think The Shins have had some personnel changes though, haven't they? I think I recalled reading that a while back...although it was a while ago and my memory sort of sucks, as a rule. I have their 3 records...but I must confess that I don't keep up with them outside the music itself nearly as much as I keep up with bands at the top of my all-time fave band list. Sounds like you might know more about that sort of thing that I would. Do you anticipate any changes to the music style as a result of any personnel changes? Just curious!

    In any case, I like The Shins enough to buy the next record. Hope it's a good one!
  • i dont think they have made a bad record. I think Wincing the Night Away is terribly underrated. But that album is so textured and brilliant.

    Im looking forward to what this thing sounds like and of course James' lyrics. The first 3 albums pretty much sum up my 20's
  • they have had quite a few personell changes. I think only james is the only member who has remained from previous incarnations.

    The drummer i believe at one time was famous for getting kicked out and then having some sort of mexican food cart stand thing in portland.


    Just like I wish i had seen Arcade Fire when Funeral blew up, in 2004/2005, I saw the Shins in 2011, but also wish i had seen them right when Garden State came out, in 2004.
