Produced by James Mercer, The Shins' fifth album, "Heartworms," was released March 10 to a wave of critical acclaim: Entertainment Weekly called "Heartworms" the "band's boldest album yet" and "a rewarding and singular addition to the Shins' catalog." Rolling Stone lauded its "home-brewed feel, heavy on Beach Boys grandeur, New Wave kicks, squiggly synth-pop and warm-weather soft rock—with lyrics tenderly balanced between midlife malaise and youthful romanticism. The result is some of the most charming music he's ever made." Time magazine opined "'Heartworms' works on a grander scale, with ornate sonic tableaux."
