Another Great James Mercer Album!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Port Of Morrow (Audio CD)
If you love the Shins and Broken Bells, you must have this Album...Listen carefully, listen well, listen often...This is not a repetition of his previous efforts/ albums...Mercer is growing...The melodies, transitions, unique soulful choices are all there...And the lyrics are still edgy, clever and moving without sappiness...Very few musicians can evoke emotions and paint life experiences / pictures like Mercer...There still is the trademark darkness and meloncholy, but you get the sense his maturity is bringing greater personal happiness to his writing...If you like Eels, Flaming Lips, Neutral Milk Hotel - run and grab this album...Enjoy!
