Customer Review

on 18 March 2007
I didn't get into the shins really until last year, when, as most of their new fans were told, i expected them to "change my life."

Guess what.

They did.

This album is frankly incredible. Like the first 2 albums, it took me a listen or two to truly appreciate it's greatness but there is no doubting the amazing achievment that James mercer and co have come up with on this new album.

The lyrics firstly, are very complex and metaphoric, which, as I have found, means that you can make your own meanings. It feels as if the songs are written for you and you only and they are sung with such a passion and in such a unique voice that each and every listen makes it more special.

No, there isn;t another new slang here but they sure all hell come close with songs like Australia, Sleeping lessons and Black wave.

There are songs here as well, such as 'a comet appears' which my have you in tears if you take thier lyircs to heart.

A monumental achievement that should be in everyones record collection.
