Shields takes a while to get into.
I think the opposite is true actually, I thought Shields upon initial release was their most accessible. Yellow House took me at least 5 listens to get the gist of and start hearing the small nuances they're typically great at.

Having given Painted Ruins some more listens, I do find it to be a good album. It's not one with any songs that are really going to jump out at you. However, the song I think is the best/most interesting is Glass Hillside. The segment starting around 1:04 sounds like Steely Dan. It's basically like a prog rock song. In fact I think the whole album could be called prog rock.



One thing I don't like about the album - and it is really really annoying: There is WAY too much sound compression on it. I dislike sound compression as it is, but it seems to be taken to an unnecessary height here. I find it to be very very distracting and makes the album really kinda hard to listen to.

The guy on The Needle Drop had the same complaint.

I just read that, back in the fall at the end of their tour last year, the band said their concert in LA could very well be their last.
