A patchy record. Some good bits but other bits sound like a Bowie wannabe.

I remember hearing "The High Road" and "The Ghost Inside" 6 years ago and liking them. Although, I never really gave the album a fair shot until recently. Needless to say, I enjoyed it a lot. Underrated album on this site for sure.

I think this is made great by Danger Mouse's inventiveness, but James Mercer is also really great, right?

I think this is actually in the better half of James Mercer releases, with only Chutes and Wincing being better.

A Ghost Inside and The Mall & Misery are two of my favorite songs James Mercer has ever done. The album sounds nice but really fails to go anywhere exciting. I enjoy it as nice background music to drive to.

James Mercer is without a doubt one of the best songwriters around today. Songs like Sailing To Nowhere are almost criminally catchy.

Another important album that probably gets more credit from me than deserved because it was one of the first great albums released during the year of my reinvention of my taste in music.

Revisited Broken Bells recently, when I was going through a whole Danger Mouse walkthrough thing. I think it's actually aging pretty well. My initial opinion a couple of years ago was that despite my wanting to be attached to it, it really has a case of the wallpaper and the samey wameys and I eventually just moved on. So I came back just now and there's actually a lot to pull from this record. It's mainly agreed that The High Road was a top tier song. The Ghost Inside is almost a throwback to Demon Days era Gorillaz. Finally, the closing two songs work so well together and seems to have been the seed to his later LP Rome. Still a lot of filler I suppose, but I liked it again enough to bump it up a few places.

Mainly boring. The first song is excellent, though.
