From larryrrr
Although I love Richard Swift, I really missed the old band on this album. This album sounds bland and antiseptic, kind of like suburban coffee shop music, compared to the earlier Shins albums. The sound is just way too clean, with rounded childproof edges, and the melodies are mostly safe and predictable. I wish Mercer and Richard Swift would try doing an album with just the two of them and not call it the Shins. I think they're both great artists and ought to try working without the pressure of the Shins moniker. I might sound a little harsh right now because I'm listening to the exceptionally bland "No Way Down." The track after it, "For a Fool," is much more interesting, but overall this album is the Shins' "Around the Sun" in my book.

The weakest Shins album by a significant margin for me, but given how much I love the Shins, it's still good. It's very front heavy though.

I loved this album for a long time right after I bought it (within a week after it came out), but my opinion on it has changed quite a bit, I still like the album though.

I fear to be disappointed at every new record they make but they still have it. Not their best work but still a good album!

This album is just as good as any of the other Shins albums. The instrumentation is cool, the lyrics are well-written and the music is great. It’s everything you could want and ask for in a Shins album. Whether you’re a Shins fan or not, I highly recommend this album to everyone. It is most definitely worth listening to.

Mercer's back, but the old magic of crafting insanely-catchy indie pop tunes is gone. These songs are still good, resembling what could pass for catcy shins indie pop, and will remind you of The Shins back catalog, but there isn't much that stands out here save the "simple song". I like it, but i also greatly value potential, and i think mercer's is about dried up. (For peak shins, see "chutes too narrow".)
