After wowing critics with their 60s-flavored debut, the Shins returned with a 2003 sophomore follow-up that is more emotionally and musically complex, with leader James Mercer's vocals and lyrics assuming a more prominent position. All of the band's trademarks are here: Britpop, chamber pop, indie rock, and harmonic pop colliding together into a supremely melodic mixture that will have any bystander humming for days.

 

Produced by Phil Ek (Modest Mouse), the album possesses a clean but natural feel, adding a bit of muscle to the Shins' seamless arrangements. Hear why in Golden State, actress Natalie Portman declares the band "will change your life."
