I think it's their best. The lyrics? You have to read James Mercer's interview, there is a surprise waiting for you.

Yeah...somet i m e s losing someone is like cutting off your own limb...just lay in the bathtub and cry kind of pain. So if somebody removed your a** would you have phantom pain in the a**. If you do then that's how u know it's me :)

"Phantom Limb" is a really good song all their other tracks are much different from each other, you don't see that much in bands, The Shins do a great job of making sure each song has originality.

Now that James Mercer has basically a whole new line-up for the Shins, he should re-record this version. Because it sounds amazing when the new bands performs it. However, like old paintings, it won't be the same. I just love their new lead guitarist jessica dobson i guess. lol.

This is one of my favorite songs! I love the 'all-girls boarding school by the seaside' vibe Wincing The Night Away has. Also, @danielle624 5 : she's right - I own the CD and it does come with a cool sticker, lol. xD

It's funny but I hear Morrisey in there every so often. A happy, upbeat one. Very good band.

Foals in winter coats
White girls of the North,
File past one, five and one,
They are the fabled lambs of Sunday ham, the EHS norm
And they could float above the grass in circles if they tried
A latent power I know they hide
To keep some hope alive that a girl like I could ever try,
Could ever try

So we just skirt the hallway sides
A phantom and a fly
Follow the lines and wonder why
There's no connection

A week of rolling eyes,
and cheap shots from the trite,
And

is he saying "the ancient snow" or "the ancients know" ??

You don't see the process, but I'm sure writing beautifully subtle lyrics like this is as tough as it seems. Paring things down and getting on to what you really want to say without being too flowery has got to be challenging. . . but man, does he make it look effortless or what?
