There ain't nothing broke about this album
on 1 August 2013
I can understand the criticism leveled at this album.
Throughout there is a persistent feeling of playing it safe. That this collaboration could have produced something unique and special.
That is not to say that this is a bad album. Far from it mes amis. This is a great album, especially towards the end. It's a Shins album produced by Danger Mouse and there ain't nothing wrong with that and both excel here.
Here's what I'd do. Get out the sun lounger. Bung on a set of quality cans or in ears and let the music flow over and through you.
This is Mercer's Insomniac, his Kid A.
The only question is, when do we get some more!
