At 33 minutes, with 10 songs

Are you serious? I've seen it in stores for $26. Cheap.

Sup Bron, how's the wife.

I LOVE YOU BRON
Yeah I got this for around $18, not too bad, but still pricey for half an hour of a band that's pretty well known.

Well, she was a tad too overbearing the other day during the Super Bowl, but one good jab to the jaw fixed her wagon.

18 dollars is too much to pay for an album, yer know.

"Gone for Good is too slow for the album to not deliver anything special, and the pedal steel makes it a bit too country."

I disagree!

Wow this thing needs more love here. to me, the shins > arcade fire imo and easily the most
consistently solid indie act of the last decade. they aren't flashy, they aren't even cool -- they
just make phenomenal music that's incredibly personable and extremely relatable

Don't forget MM put out both M&A and Building Something Out of Nothing last decade....

And Good News. Some hated on it, but I love that album.

hehe -- yea, i was never much of a modest mouse guy but i do respect what they've done. still, the universe seems to have forgotten about the shins and this upsets me :/

I hear you on that, The Shins are something special to me as well.

Did you like this album a lot when you first heard it? A few months back someone recommended I get these since I'm a huge MM fan, and it's more good "Indie Rock". I went for it and LOVED the first album on the first listen, but this one took like 3 or 4 listens for me to really appreciate for some odd reason.

'new slang' was my early fav and i liked oh, inverted more than this for a while ('caring is creepy' might still be my overall fav), but i do like this one a lot more now. i definitely needed time to adjust to mercer's voice

Agree with the review. Second half drags slightly, but band rules
