Somewhere between Brian Wilson and Morrissey with the lyrics for me.

Less well-regarded by most Shins fans. Still, this was my first and probably my second-favorite. A Comet Appears makes the entire album.

My least favorite Shins album. Given I really like the other three, I don't mean it in a bad way, it's just not as strong. It has way too many songs that are just decent, it's nice to listen to (after all, it's the Shins), but every time I listen to it I feel like it has too much filler

There are some great songs in it though, Australia and Phantom Limb are excellent, and Turn on Me and Spilt Needles are pretty good

"Little to no melody of significance." I think you listened to the wrong album bro.

This album has the Shins at their best - especially the first 5 songs - but also has some of their worst as well. Still a good lesson.

Absolutely my favorite shins album. Sleeping lessons is my all time favorite with "you're not obliged to swallow anything you despite" sounds like such an Eleanor Roosevelt preachy quote but I love it nonetheless. Their debut was wonderful but this is more nuanced
