I also love BPB -- even have one of the 150 Bonnie Prince Billy bottle stops. :)

I'm a fan of BPB but he can definitely be all over the map -- by design or for whatever reason. This was definitely a good show and an excellent example of his recent style.

The Shins are great, but only for their first album. Apparently they ditched their producer (forget the name) and went at it alone for subsequent albums. Difference in quality is very evident, with later albums being almost unbearable (lead singer's already annoying voice is obnoxiously featured).

This is not true on any level. Phil Ek produced their first two label-released albums (Oh, Inverted World and Chutes Too Narrow). Joe Chiccarelli produced their third and Mercer and Greg Kurstin produced the new one.

I think the Shins continue to produce great new pop songs but those first two albums set a standard for consistency that was probably impossible to maintain.

@wilko
I stand corrected, I probably mistook them with The Thrills. Sorry and thanks for correcting my facts! :)
