Broken Bells

Broken Bells

The self titled first album from Broken Bells surely had some expectations built in.  The combined efforts of James Mercer (The Shins) and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) meant that the talent was there, but we all know that doesn’t automatically mean it will work.  Fortunately there is little to be disappointed with.  Think of a funkier Shins, with stronger baselines and the benefit of well placed electronic sounds.   Standouts are “The High Road”, “Vaporize” and  “The Ghost Inside” .
