The lyrics are just, well, bliss. They flow within each track and onto the next. And the sound of the album is just as wonderfull. This is one of few albums that can be but into your changer and be let to do what it will to your ears as at it spins your mind into a whirlwind of wonder. The whole disc is great. Sometimes I listen to it while I fall asleep. And yet other times I'm blasting tracks while speeding in my car. I purchased this album unknowing that it would become one of my top five album picks of all time. A lyrical masterpiece.

dont just buy this single buy the album. one of my favorite albums to come out in recent times, the shins will suck you in and you will never be the same. Beautiful melodies are abound and the lyrics border genius. A must own for music fans. Even my 57 yr old mother loves this album.

New Mexico's The Shins have released one of the catchiest singles ever on the Sub Pop label. "Know Your Onion" is nothing like the normal grunge sound associated with the label. It has a pop sensibility without the usual banality of the genre. A truly winning song.

The Shins are a good band, and all their songs are fine. But track four of this single, Sphagnum Esplenade, is one of the trippiest, warped songs I've ever heard in my life. It's a crazy song and one of the few songs I tell everyone to listen to.

the "So Says I" EP and the recently released "Fighting In a Sack" EP that is strangely not yet available here on Amazon.com. The "Know Your Onion" EP is excellent, especially after you listen to "Oh, Inverted World" or "Chutes Too Narrow" and feel like you really didn't want the music to end. All of the Shins EP's provide interesting B-sides and live recordings and you can't beat the price.

Well worth your money... Sept. 23 2004
By Evan McDermott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD because I love both of the Shin's albums and there were songs on this single that I had never heard. This CD is excellent. Each track here is well worth your time and the CD is really cool looking. It's like half clear. Very cool. Buy!
