Does anyone know how many copies it has sold so far? I'm really hoping it gets into the top 20...
Top 10 plz!
No.2 in America though, which is a bit mad.
should help propel it
it said (according to midweek sales) that the album was in the top 10, so here's hoping. It sure as hell deserves to be, I love that album.
A real example of a fine record.
Roll on a top 10, 5 even?
i think it's a consistently alright record spoilt by the expectations on it and horrible over production.
I don't think it matches Chutes Too Narrow, but it got me into The Shins, so it still deserves a high placing. Even if it isn't their best record.
Is there gonna be UK one?
Their MySpace says they're playing two shows in London, hopefully they'll do a tad more than that. I'll wait and see...
I stick by my verdict of 7.5/10. I love the last paragraph of that review.
is fucking awful and the reviewer is in danger of imploding under the pressure of his own self importance. It's really not that hard an album to review.
it sounds promising, but with Shins albums you really have to live with it for a week or so to make a good judgement. That said, I doubt this will end up topping Chutes Too Narrow which is one of my favourite albums ever.
