8/10 Tom Customer review, 22nd May 2018

The Shins had one of those awkward make-or-break moments when Zach Braff (him off of Scrubs) put them in the soundtrack of his movie Garden State and made Natalie Portman say the words "The Shins...they'll change your life."

Did listening to the Shins change my life? Of course it fucking didn't. However, their debut album Oh, Inverted World is absolutely chock-full of great pastoral indie rock songs, from the afore-referenced 'New Slang' to the jerky, anxious 'Know Your Onions' and album opener 'Caring is Creepy.' There are even some unexpectedly weird moments on the album, like the shadowy, gothic 'Your Algebra' and the creepy folk of 'Weird Divide.' This combined with frontman James Mercer's deceptively simple lyrics make Oh, Inverted World a bit of a nerdy indie rock classic.


9/10 Jack Customer review, 3rd June 2016

While on the surface this would appear to be a delicate set of songs, a close listen will reveal that everything here is driven by wiry and tough rhythms. It's this toughness that sets the Shins apart from their more fey indie pop brethren. Of course what really elevates Oh, Inverted World to a level of greatness is the fantastic song writing abilities of the band. And that's the miracle of The Shins, they match bouncy hooks and charming melodies with just enough alien weirdness to make this a refreshing experience.
