Album Rating: 4.5
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.
