Early Contender for Album of the Year,
This review is from: Broken Bells (MP3 Music)
Danger Mouse is on a roll and this collaboration with James Mercer of The Shins is beautifully unexpected. I was expecting something similar to his work on Beck's Modern Guilt, Gnarl Barkley, Gorillaz, or Damon Albarn's Good, Bad & the Queen.
Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) plays his own instruments rather than sampling while bringing the same melodic intensity. Mercer brings his signature vocals. Together, the result is immediate and exactly what 2009 was lacking IMO.
Worth the price at any price.

Your review is proof that it doesn't need to be long-winded to get the pertinent info and your input and opinion on songs. I didn't disagree with a single one of your comments. Bravo!
