Broken Bells is the collaboration between Danger Mouse (Gnarles Barkley) & James Mercer (The Shins). In my first listen of this album I was not impressed at all, my expectations must have been too high from the single. However, after my second listen I was pleasantly surprised with the album as a whole. James' voice is very different from most of The Shins' songs and when you throw it ontop of some groovy R&B beats from Danger Mouse it takes a little getting used to. I am aware that my enemy and Starbucks are both pushing this album but I approve of it as well.
RIYL: The Broken West, Beck, The Shins
