The Shins - Oh Inverted World

Ok. Now I listened to this today for the first time and wanted to hurry to get it up here for you.
What to say?
I like it.
I can't for the life of me think of who it is that the lead singers voice reminds me of. Damnit. You know how it is..when it's on the tip of your tongue but...damn damn damn!
The music is pretty mellow. Nice, relaxing summery-feel-good music. It has all the right components and they all go together to produce a highly listenable, peaceful and professional album.
A reminder of the sixties is in there somewhere. Some basic twelve-bar blues in a kind of psychedelic style in there too. Some great drumming and lots of guitars. Even some hints of a slight trip back to the eighties in there somewhere too...and could it be Robert Smith of The Cure that I am being reminded of here..?
Could be, could be.
I need to hear the album at least thrice before I say for sure!

I can't slag them off.
Very good. Might even have managed to mellow me out!
For a day anyway.
Back tomorrow with some real angst!

Excellent choice. Particularly love the last track "the Past And The Pending".

Their second album "Chutes Too Narrow" possibly even better.

Wow. I bought that album a couple of days ago, and listened to it for the first time yesterday as well... Cosmic!
