Description


This 20th anniversary remastered edition of Oh, Inverted World, The Shin's much-beloved debut, includes a booklet with vintage photos, liner notes, handwritten lyrics and more. Oh, Inverted World is the earth-shattering, indie-rock-redefining 2001 album from the group, and is presented here in its finest form. The classic tunes get new life with mastering by Bob Ludwig, under bandleader James Mercer’s watchful eye. The new front cover of this edition of Oh, Inverted World features an inverted color scheme on a die-cut jacket and includes a booklet filled with vintage photos, handwritten lyrics, liner notes and more.

The music on Oh, Inverted World is obviously essential, and this remastering truly makes this the album Mercer always wanted it to be. Never quite satisfied with the sonics of the original, Mercer took the 20th anniversary of the album as his opportunity to finally set the (literal!) record straight. And the results sound stellar: great for new fans, and well worth the attention for those who fell in love with it in the first place.

Mercer says of Oh, Inverted World, “This record gave me the life that I never really dreamed I would have. It opened me up to the whole world and gave me validation. It’s also something that stands as a bit of a pinnacle for our band. You release that first record and it’s so well embraced, but you’re always trying to get that magic back, I think. We’ve done well, certainly, but the fervor that happened around Oh, Inverted World we never quite reached again. It’s a special moment when you’re a new band and you’ve got what was apparently kind of a new sound. This record symbolized a very special moment in my life, a watershed moment for sure.”
