We gave it a B+

And then there was one: Only frontman James Mercer remains of the indie stars’ original lineup. Thankfully, he and his new mates have conjured the band’s best album in nearly a decade. Morrow offers a rejuvenated collection of aerated jangle pop and dreamy ditties in Port of Morrow. ”I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone,” Mercer sings on lead single ”Simple Song.” Good to know that it worked out in the end. B+

Best Tracks:
Aptly titled Simple Song
Endless-summer reverie September
