Pretty cool idea...pretty poor execution. Why mess with what was already a great album unless you thought that you had something to add TO it...certainly not to detract FROM it (which is what happened here).

Best since “Wincing The Night Away”

Heartworms was a good album, but it wasn’t on the same level as their first four. There were standouts, “The Fear”, “Fantasy Island”, “Heartworms”, but for the most part it wasn’t typical “The Shins” quality. This album is incredible. Every song that was okay or worse on “Heartworms” is amazing on here. It sounds like a less acoustic “Chutes Too Narrow”. Overall, I prefer 8 flipped versions to their originals. Incredible work as always James!

Sometimes when you flip things over, they don’t look any better. This flipped version of heart worms just wasn’t a good idea in my opinion and not worth the full price for re-worked material. I love the Shins, but this album didn’t work for me.
