4.0 out of 5 stars
New direction, 5 Dec. 2006
The Shins' third album takes them in a different, slowed down, almost spaced out direction. More synths, slower paced melodies and a wider range of styles are in evidence, and those expecting another 'Chutes Too Narrow' will be a little disappointed. However, The Shins continue to be one of the great alternative bands and there are plenty of moments of quality on display here.
