    Love the album. Just as I thought it might be. I wish Beck and Mercer would work together. :D

    That would be sweet. Beck's last album was cool

    +1

    I had never really thought about this possible combination...but this would be awesome! These guys are totally the Kings of Quirk. :lol:

    Favorite song is The Rifles Spiral. The rest is growing on me.

    its definitely different. different sounding and a different vibe. Only a few songs with the trademark james mercer existentialist lyrics, which are a main reason why i love the band. oddly, he left off 2 songs, the ones you can get on itunes, which are the most explicitly existentialist lyrics. The last song is that james singing? the voice sounds nothing like his

    Yeah it must be the lyrics. I believe that's him on the last song.

    I'm liking it more and more.. I see some Crowded House influence.

    Can't get into this album at all. Just not feeling it. I'm still optimistic though.
    Pick up my debut novel here on amazon: Jonny Bails Floatin (in paperback) (also available on Kindle for $2.99)

    I'm starting to finally like this album.. Stuff is growing on me. No Way Down is stuck in my head now.

    Bought it a few days ago.....I think I like it, even on the first listen. A few songs might need a bit to get into, but for the most part I'm enjoying it...

    Man, I just really didn't dig the new stuff... Not even live... The band just isn't as good as it used to be... not to me... It was really missing the harmonies that really made Mercer's vocals very cool... The musicians are all very talented but it's not The Shins I grew up loving.

    I thought they sounded better with the new line-up then the last time i saw them in '09 with the older line up :? Just, IMO though
