The Shins - Port of Morrow

Recommended Posts

This has had really mixed reviews but I think it's fantastic; probably their 2nd best record after Wincing the Night Away. I purchased it perfectly to coincide with the beautiful weather we're having.

Anyone heard it yet? It's just another great album by The Shins, consolidating them as one of my favourite bands right now (although I'm not fussed with Oh, Inverted World).

Listened for the first time last night, first thoughts are that it is pretty good. It will take a lot to shift WtNA as my number one, too. Will listen again today.

you don't like Chute's Too Narrow?! that's my favourite Shins album, but it's also the first one I heard so i guess it has that 'sentimental' feel or whatever the fuck.

New Slang is an outstanding song, but that album is pretty uninspriring. I always associate New Slang with Zach Braff's stupid face, mind you.

It goes Wincing the Night Away>Port of Morrow>Chutes Too Narrow>Oh, Inverted World.

Ewan, I love Chutes Too Narrow, just not as much as these other two.

That was the point of my post.

I have Oh, Inverted world and Chutes too narrow. I like Chutes too narrow the most of the two. I'm not exactly sure why I never bothered with Wincing the night away.

WtNA: it is honestly great. I can hear a lot of The Smiths in it, except it is better than The Smiths.

Also, *two.

No way, I thought it was just a given that Wincing the Night Away is the best and Oh, Inverted World is the worst! There's only one weak song on Wincing...

Ha, well it appears we are as flabbergasted as each other.

Oh, Inverted World is sublime in every way. Always recognise it as one of top 5 favourite albums. If you're not that in to it, then I honestly think you haven't given it the time it deserves. Please go back and listen to it on repeat.
