The Shins: Port of Morrow | Album Reviews | Pitchfork

Solid review score, Best New Music as well.

Despite not being uber-thrilled with the stream the one time I listened to it, still really looking forward to having the real deal in my hands on Tuesday.

Port of Morrow is not the best music out right now, not at all. At least Dombal didn't write this one.

They enjoyed Broken Bells too, so there's that.

To even things out, Popmatters gave it a 4.

One's too high, one's too low.

agreed. i do like a little more than half the album. unfortunately, it's not going to be the kind of album that i play front to back. it will be the type that i pull 5-6 songs and make a playlist.

This is disappointing. I haven't been following this thread but I just assumed the new record was going to be good, although I wasn't wild about the 2nd song they played on SNL.

So I'll wait for mofo's review before I buy it. I don't think I have a relationship with The Shins where I buy everything even if it's not good, although clearly that hasn't been a problem 'til now.

I just got an email from Silver Platters (Seattle indie record shop) that says they will be giving away a 4-track acoustic EP with the record.

I'm going to try the local indie shop in Tacoma tomorrow to see if they have the EP. No way I'll have time to drive all the way to Seattle.

No. I was just looking at the Record Store Day website and it says "four acoustic tracks from Point of Morrow."

Hope my store has that.

I wish the second half of this album was as good as the first.

Dang, that would be cool. I liked the acoustic versions Mercer's been doing of Simple Song. Hopefully the indie store here has it too, I'll buy a second copy just to get the EP.
