The title track is from the Shins' sophomore album "Chutes Too Narrow: a richly melodic rant ("In our darkest hours/we have all asked for some/angel to come/sprinkle his dust all around..."). Nice solid stuff, though hardly their best. "Mild Child" is a pretty, slow melody. And the alternate version of "Chutes"'s "Gone For Good" has a more countryish feel.
The sweet, harmonious music of the Shins can mask anger, depression, or just plain weirdness. They're in pretty good form in "So Says I"; each song is pleasant but not outstanding, including the twangier "Gone" and swirling, slightly peculiar "Child." It's a more rock-based single, rather than the electro-indiepop sound the Shins are known for, and it's a fairly good departure.
"So Says I" is a pleasant but unexciting diversion for the Shins fan. An interesting look at a few odds and bits from this talented indie band.
"Gone for Good" sounds a lot like Uncle Tupelo / John Fogerty with a Shins twist, which I really dig!
Mild Child is a beautiful song, although expect to be melancholy after playing it. Swirling melodies and subliminal synth add a wonderful counterpoint to the steadily strummed acoustic guitar.
The title track is glorious and strongly reminds me of Zumpano reborn.
