AllMusic Review by

The Shins' "So Says I" was the lead single off of 2003's acclaimed Chutes Too Narrow. The title track is taken from the album and is an insanely bouncy song with some very woozy vocal harmonies. "Mild Child" was recorded in singer James Mercer's basement. It's a lo-fi, dreamily melodic ballad that is shrouded in an atmospheric haze of reverb, and the ramshackle acoustic take on Chutes Too Narrow's "Gone for Good" was also recorded in Mercer's basement acoustic. A fine preview for a fine album by a fine band.
