    Alright Im glad you've formed your own opinion on it, but this fucking review on p4k is just awful no matter what score they give it. Dude spends the first 3 of 7 paragraphs reciting the history of the last 5 years in pop music and the previous Shin's cataloge before slightly mentioning any thought on Port of Morrow? Who fucking cares. Talk about this new one goddamit!

    Good fucking god im glad we can all remember that the shins were in the garden state soundtrack and everyone wants to suck natalie portman's dick. That one line was so needed.

    I absolutely agree with you about the new Shins album, Chris. It feels like a continuation of Broken Bells in that it is a slick, over-produced product with two or three really good, hook-filled tracks and a lot of forgettable filler.

    And I agree with you, cutter, that the review was particularly execrable, even apart from overrating the album. So much navel gazing, and too much of an attempt to re-write the other guys in the band out of its history.

    I have to admit, the end of the Shins review where they actually start talking about the album makes me want to check Port of Morrow out since I haven't heard it yet.

    Any bets on Beach House as the first 9.0+ album of 2012?

    Just don't get Beach House at all. Find it hard to get through a single track, never mind a whole album.

    On first few listens, i'm not loving the new Beach House album. I'm hoping it grows on me.

    Beach House's new album is pretty similar to Team Dream but I do think the new one has some more radio friendly tracks. I can see "New Year" doing well on radio.

    The best part of the entire Pitchfork review of the new Silversun album is that the entire first paragraph was trying to hammer home some deep point about the band... by using a misinterpreted lyric from Lazy Eye. He has since gone back and altered it (although it still isn't accurate), but it doesn't make any sense.

    Yeah, the new SSP is a lot better than that silly score. It's actually quite a good album.

    Favorable comparisons to Little Dragon and The Field??? Embarrasing drivel. PF has a bad habit of churning out inflated dance music reviews, but this takes the cake.

    My early take: they're still embarrassed for whiffing so badly on Discovery in 2001 (Schreiber himself wrote that review, too), and they're overcompensating now. They want to hedge their critical stance in the event that the current cheese wave finds a permanent place in the cultural firmament.

    Most people don't have the type of unhealthy obsession with Daft Punk this would require.
