From Strangel
Unlike many, I didn't discover The Shins through the movie Garden State and the song from that movie soundtrack, New Slang (it will 'change your life' and all that). I was initially blown away by their second album Chutes To Narrow which led me on to this other excellent album of theirs. Like Chutes, there isn't a bad tune here. It's understated production makes it less glossy in sound but a bit more cred as an indie classic. And while New Slang won't necessarily change your life, it will give you a satisfied smile which is just as important sometimes.

Caring Is Creepy and New Slang are really good.

Great album. Full of good songs like Pressed in a Book, Girl Inform Me, Know Your Onion, and the rest. I probably like Chutes Too Narrow a little better, but this is a close second

Best album by The Shins by far. Some argue that Chutes Too Narrow is more consistent, but there isn't a bad song on here, and the highs are so much higher.
