CYHSY, Shins, etc.

So the new Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Shins CDs are out.  Based on a couple of listens of  the CYHSY CD has some good tracks, but its not near as strong as their first CD.  The Shins CD is good… maybe even great… but it needs more play time.  In both cases, I sense a loss of the charm that made their early works so great (CYHSY much more than the Shins).

And before a rabid fan gets all in a tizzy, I will say I’ve really not been in the mood for either one.  I’ve been listening to more mellow tracks such as Emily Haines, Broken Social Scene’s “Feel Good Lost” and Air’s “Pocket Symphony” (I know the latter has not been releasesd as yet, but I managed to get hold of it and its absolutely wonderful).
