31 Dec 2009, 15:03 by itravelSo the 00's wasn't generally a great decade for music. Yes, the music industry complains about the lack of CD sales, but honestly, that is due to the fugacious nature of music the past several years. The most popular tracks have more often than not, been about the immediate sales of singles. With iTunes coming to fruition in this decade, it saw the rise of those with little pocket money (and sometimes little music taste either) deciding what the 'top tracks' are. However, with the internet becoming a big source for more independent new music, this saw the rise of several great bands. Call this the 2000's, or the Naught'ies, or whatever you will, but hidden amongst most of the rubbish out there were some brilliant music groups that came into existence, and established themselves well in the past 10 years. Some of the following bands had EP's out previously, but this list is from album releases beginning in 2000. You may agree, or disagree, though more often than not I tend to disagree with most countdowns. …

30 Jan 2007, 21:45 by LauraLaurent7Its not very often that when listening to a new album do I feel compelled to break out my journal that is with me at all times and write the first thing that comes to mind when I hear this said new album by an artist I've been following for quite sometime. However, the album from The Shins struck me as "awkwardly catchy" but not so much like their older albums. Wincing the Night Away has some really great songs within it but there is something different about this sound in comparison to what most of The Shins fans are used to.
Stuck right in the middle of all the catchiness is Sea Legs, a song that hints at a moment of a dance craze one might start along the way with the Shins being the leader. Its not bad, its not good, its just different.
Hearing the drip drops of water to begin a song is much more their style and instantly I know that Red Rabbits would be one of my favorites on the album.
I just might give the old dark side a try
30 Nov 2006, 18:47 by discoDriveThis album is awesome, but it seems very different to usual Shins stuff. The first half is quite quirky and similar to the previous Shins albums, happy and upbeat, the album takes a turn, for the best in my opinion when it reaches Turn on me. The style of music is suddenly more downbeat and darker than usual. The song Black Wave is a good example of this, and Split Needles follows in the same style. Id recommend the album to Shins fans, but also to people who might have listened to them before. Its a very different sound to the previous efforts.
the shins indie indie-pop
30 Oct 2006, 22:28 by thefatindianMy first reaction was, "wow...this sound so different compared to Chutes Too Narrow and Oh, Inverted World. In Sleeping Lessons, the first track on Wincing the Night Away, you can see how the style has dramatically changed, with more of a *dreamy* feeling without the guitars.
Phantom Limb bring us back to the classic The Shins feeling and is such an excellent song.
The rest of the album has a mix of good and bad songs. I'm not digging their songs that shy away from their classic "sing along with me guitar" feel from the first two albums.
Check these out!: Sleeping Lessons Phantom Limb Turn on Me Australia A Comet Appears

I'm pretty sure that this album will be released in stores early next year but I'm not sure it will be sitting next to my other two Shins albums. :(
<3 The Shins but I'll stick to the first two albums...::^^::
