I managed to hear the album, and it is quite strong. Very eclectic, as one might suspect, although it struck me as somewhat over-produced.

I thought it was great, from what I heard. RS only gave it 3.5 stars. I think it sounded like a 4 to me, but I didn't hear it all the way through.

I've had this album for months...

Quite possibly their best.

The torrent is everywhere.

Months?

But yeah, if the 5.99 rumors at Best Buy for the first week are true, I'm buying it when it comes out.

Me too. I probably won't pre-order it though...I got the new Beck and Killers albums about 3 days later than everyone else when I did that.

I gave Funeral another listen today and remembered why I'm so excited about Neon Bible in the first place.

I put on some monster, noise-cancelling headphones to listen to this, and it's so amazing.

When "Sleeping Lessons" fully kicks in... words just cannot express man.

Super Chill Moments galore with this album.

Absolutely, man. I listened to this last night all the way through, and I can say this is at least as good as anything they've ever done. They've turned into a full-on stadium rock band with actual production values, and they did it right(!)

Sleeping Lessons is magical. You can feel the volume when the song gets moving.
Australia is lovely.
Pam Berry rocks.
Phantom Limb is gorgeous and should have been a lot bigger of a single than it currently has been.
Sea Legs is my favorite Shins song. That should be enough.
Red Rabbits has some lovely melodies, and is very enjoyable.

Everything else is strong as well.

The best pop album of 2007, and it's only January.

"A Comet Appears" actually is the most gorgeous song they've done since "New Slang"

I like this album way more than "Chutes Too Narrow" but just a little less than "Oh, Inverted World", just because it doesn't have "Caring is Creepy"

Actually, my favorite Shins album opener is Kissing The Lipless, which is one reason why Chutes Too Narrow is even up there with either album. The band has made two great albums and one very good one. I guess we'll have to wait a while for them to screw up, though it will happen someday.
