This album is my second experience with The Shins, the first being Chutes Too Narrow. The first thing I noticed about this album was its more poppy style and subdued nature. The guitar rifts are peppered with a pretty wide array of instrumentation, including even the xylophone. While this may not have been what I expected from Oh, Inverted World, it still ended up providing a very pleasurable and easy going workout experience.
I'm sorry for missing three days. I didn't want to, but I have been getting busier and busier every week, this week being no exception. I'm going to try to pull at least the weekdays this week, and hopefully Saturday.
