That kind of rnproclamation is loaded with expectations when it\'s just rnone friend talking up a band to another, but it\'s rnmagnified a thousandfold when Natalie Portman says it rnin a hit movie. The band\'s popularity was already rngrowing steadily with each album they released, but rnGarden State took them to another level entirely -- if rnanyone\'s life was changed by that praise-filled cameo, rnit was the Shins\'. The expectations and pressure that rnthe Garden State effect brought could\'ve been too much rnfor any band, especially a delicate, wistful one like rnthe Shins. Though they took a little while to deliver a rnnew album, Wincing the Night Away shows that time was rnwell spent. Neither a retread nor a radical departure rn-- nor, thankfully, a conscious attempt at making rn"life-changing" music -- the album is a mix of rnquintessentially Shins songs and tracks that take their rnsound in subtly different directions. Wincing\'s clean, rnborderline slick production is the main concession to rnthe band\'s post-Garden State fame, but this just makes rnjoyfully sad songs like "Australia" and "Turn on Me" rnsound like nods to jangly \'80s indie instead of jangly rn\'60s guitar pop. "Phantom Limb," Wincing the Night rnAway\'s single, is the closest the album comes to the rnShins-by-numbers that some fans feared this album would rnbe in the wake of their mainstream success, though the rnstrange, soaring chord change that leads into the rnchorus keeps things from being too predictable. rnActually, many of the album\'s best moments show how the rnShins\' music has progressed: "Sleeping Lessons" begins rnand defines Wincing the Night Away, moving from rnshimmery opening keyboards to strummy acoustic guitars rnto a rousing, electrified finish. "Black Wave" is rnanother standout, a stark ballad with chilly layers of rnelectronic textures surrounding James Mercer\'s rnplaintive vocals, and "Split Needles" continues this rndark, dreamy, synth-heavy feel. The band ventures even rnfarther from familiar territory with "Sea Legs"\' slinky rnbeat and funky bassline, and with "Red Rabbits"\' rnkeyboards, which sound like a cross between dripping rnwater and steel drums. These experiments never feel rncontrived, and never get in the way of the vulnerable rnheart of the Shins\' music (which beats loudest on the rnhopeful album closer, "A Comet Appears"). Wincing the rnNight Away is the sound of the Shins acknowledging rnwhere they\'ve been and moving on to new territory, and rnwhile it probably won\'t change your life, it probably rnwill make it more enjoyable -- and, most likely, that\'s rnall the Shins wanted to do in the first place.
