100% original, primo tunes. James Mercer is a musical genius.

6+ years later and I'm wondering if you ever got rid of it. I just might PM you if I think about it later.  I've grown to like the Shins despite the fact I like this track best and the rest of their music is not as good.  Oh well....it can't all be AWESOMENESS!

Long Live RP!

I love this song because the singer uses his full range of vocal gymnastics and that makes it interesting to sing along with!

Saw them at Club Quattro in Shibuya on this tour; this song was the highlight; the mad, bass-driven, mass dance trance was incredible

Yea- these guys are pretty darn good. They need to hang out just a little further with the instrumental stuff and they'd be touching Pink Floyd territory.

I am very curious to see what we hear after Ray Charles - Hit the Road Jack.  If it's Gazpacho - Never Winter, I will be hitting the road...

I agree, it's a shame the rest of the song doesnt benefit from a similar treatment.

Yep, the usual highly obscure Shins words. Great sound, gnomic lyrics with metaphors beyond the understanding of most mortals, including this listener. 8 from the head-scratching Nottingham jury.

Funny, borrowed the CD from a friend because of this song, absolutely love this song.  Did not like another single track, but definitely didn't dislike it enough to pay someone to take it..ha.

I did find the music was very well recorded, very clean.  Especially enjoyed cranking up this song.
