I like it on first listen, there is no stand out track like two weeks but that doesn't bother me.

The first 4 and last 3 tracks are phenomenal. I bought it after listening to the stream once and it hasn't disappointed.

The whole packaging is nice as well and the booklet contains lyrics which is nice. They're pretty vague though.

This is beginning to give me pause since the friend received his Saturday. So if it's not here today, I'ma bitch out Insound. Seems fair.

They aren't particularly informative on the topic of shields, no.

"It's like if you could imagine a morbidly obese ballerina stumbling onto stage in front of an audience of thousands."

"The strings are piled on like the dirt from the grave these guys are digging for their old sound."

Anthony Fantano gives Shields a firm

Grizzly Bear- Shields ALBUM REVIEW - YouTube

I think I might buy this album and try and get more into it.

I'm surprised a Yellow House fan found so little to love on Shields, but hey, he's in a strong minority. Album's getting love all over the place. I'm not in love with it yet, but it's very nice and enjoyable to listen to. Sleeping Ute is excellent.

On second listen I like this more, I think I may like it more than Veckatimest, in fact...

I'm definitely in love with it.

Fantano still gives it a 6. That's not too bad (I haven't seen the review yet). He also gave Centipede Hz a 6 and he had barely anything positive to say so that might not say much.

So everyone keeps saying that they don't like the middle section, but A Simple Answer has been one of my favorite tracks on the album every time I've listened to it.

What's up with that?

I don't get that reference.

As an anwser to your question, I just listened to the album again and I enjoyed it more than previously. The drums are cool and I like how it subtly builds and then, doesn't. I enjoy each track on the album now (and the lyrics are becoming clear to me ). The Hunt is still a bit boring but it works as a nice resting point, now that I enjoy A Simple Answer more.

The way some words are sung together (I don't know how to describe it) during the chorus of Gun-Shy is a highlight for me.
