I love pretty much everything James Mercer does so it was not a big decision to buy. The Shins last album Port of Morrow was a mixed bag but contained a few gems (simple song, rifle spiral) but this is top notch all the way through, and a better initial listen than the first effort with Danger Mouse. Highlights at the moment are Holding on for life, control and perfect world but I can imagine the other worming their way into my brain in no time.

Broken Bells, consisting of Danger Mouse and the Shins' James Mercer, released a self-titled album in 2010, which feels like an eternity ago in the current music business environment. Since that time, James Mercer released a new Shins album in which he is the only remaining original member of the band, and Danger Mouse has continued his high profile producer career. It wasn't clear whether the 2010 album would be a one-off. After that new Shins album in 2012, Mercer and Mouse started working on new material. Now comes the second album.

"After The Disco" (11 tracks; 46 min.) starts off with a number of incredibly strong tracks. The ambitious 6 1/2 min. "Perfect World" opens the album, and comes with a nice instrumental outro. The title track follows, and I must tell you that it is my favorite track on the album, a perfect 3 min. of pop-disco (with lyrics that go The chill of night has got you dancing away/And I'm not the dreamer or the dream you're/Out there looking for". Next comes "Holding On For Life", which is what the Bee Gees would sound like today if they still made new music. Those three songs along are worth the admission price. Further into the album, another great tune is "Control", again finding that sweet spot between pop and dance. The album falters a bit towards the end, in particular with "Medicine" and "The Angel and The Fool", but makes up for it with the album closer, another ambitious tune "The Remains of Rock and Roll".

In all, this is quite the album, and in fact for me it is MILES better than the first album.

The first 3 tracks are for me the best 3 tracks on the album,and the title track,After The Disco, will be right up there with the best tunes to come out this year. If you liked the first album then this is a step further in the right direction,not perfection by any means but a very,very good album. Shins and James Mercer fans will certainly find it appealing.

My interest in this Album was spurred by a review of it, in the ‘Times newspaper; I found it very listenable, and have not wanted to skip any track on this CD. It has an almost mystical, faraway quality about it, which I find appealing; well worth the money….

With one previous album (Broken Bells) Broken Bells have burst back with a sophomore album which improves from the debut record in every way. It's full of life that is purely infectious upon hitting play on that opening track, and what a track that is, known as "Perfect World" and it does exactly what it says on the tin. The opening baseline is like a red carpet welcoming you to an event, providing great hospitality this song hits in every area it aims for, with powerful lyrics, consistent bass, and strong vocals to boot this will keep you rocking throughout the six minutes and twenty four seconds of duration.

With the opening three songs focusing on deep bass and energetic synth we come to track number four, "Leave it Alone" which would remind you of a The Shins song, for good reason. I believe it's one of Mr. Mercer's most powerful songs, and he seems to be in paradise with it. The track focuses on pitch perfect guitar work, beautiful lyrics and even a string quartet is given a warm welcome, the backing vocals are like a pathogen, and I mean that in the best way possible, it infects your mind and you will be humming and whistling them everywhere you go.

Trying to think of a bad song and it is physically impossible for me to do so, but if I was to pick the worst song, I would say "Medicine", not a bad song at all but the only thing is; it's colleagues are better.

With a well earned 5/5 for this record my review is your excuse hit that "Add to basket" button. It goes to show, you can teach old dogs new tricks.

However if this has not sold you, pay reference to the other great reviews for this product.

I bought this for my boyfriend for valentines day because he loves broken bells. And because I bought the CD, I got a free digital copy, which was cool. I've listened to it a few times, and I like it, despite the fact that it's not necessarily my kind of music. It came on time and in good condition, thank you.
