Phantom Limb and Sea Legs are the only tracks worthwhile on this

I've always kind of hated The Shins since they first came out. Thought they were a bunch of twee pansies who made Death Cab look full of testosterone by comparison.



This is the one album of theirs that impressed me....it gives me the same vibes of wonder, introspection, and self-discovery that I get from albums like Funeral or Aeroplane.



Sleeping Lessons makes me want to go find everyone who's ever wronged me and spit in their face......in a positive, self-improving kind of way.

Basically to sum up the Shins:



Oh, Inverted World = Classic album and an essential addition to any indie collection



The rest of their career = 3.5

Nope. Inverted is really good, but Chutes Too Narrow is better.

A stronger girl would shake this off in flight

And never give it more than a frowning hour

But you have let your heart decide

Loss has conquered you
