I feel like I'm the only one who loved this album completely in every single way and can't find a flaw
Modest Mouse's least memorable full length, as it's finest moments sit alongside the tedious playing-it-safe songs, but there's enough spurts of inspiration here to warrant a listen even if you're not a Modest Mouse fanatic, even with the bushels of missed potential that an Isaac Brock-Johnny Marr songwriting team could've conjured.
Spitting Venom and Parting of the Sensory are absolutely top notch and the album also has some of the catchiest songs the band has put out. There are a few weak tracks, but overall I enjoy this album more than I do Good News (which was still a good album).
This album has it's moments, but it isn't better than MM's older work. I love March into the sea though. That song's just amazing and so is Dashboard.
One of the best albums of the 2000's, Modest Mouse puts out their third classic in a row. The most common criticism for this album is that no track really stand out, but I beg to differ. This album contains two of the greatest songs MM ever recorded, The Parting of the Sensory and Missed the Boat. While the lyricism in this album doesn't quite reach The Moon & Antarctica levels, it's still far superior to the songwriting of most artists.
It's a solid album all the way through, and the first six songs really stand out. The second half is weaker, but Education, Little Motel, and Spitting Venom are all very entertaining. Spitting Venom is the longest track on the album, but its good all the way through, but it isn't as great as say The Stars Are Projectors.
Great band and cd. Seems like just yesterday I was blowing all my money to buy four modest mouse cds even though I only knew the songs 'Float On' and 'Missed the Boat' Ahh... Those were the days... Spitting Venom and Parting of the Sensory are very... attractive songs.
I bought this because Johnny Marr played on it and because of this I discovered what a great band they are. How had I been unaware of them for so long?
Modest Mouse keeps it up. As a whole, just as solid as their earlier work. Individual tracks? None stand out like the tracks on Good News or Moon & Antarctica. Still - keeping up the streak. Gives me hop for the next one.
A consistently good album. No reason to hate this for not being in the same vain as their first albums or for not having the same highlights as Good News... I guess I understand people not liking it if they want to hear the "rawness" of their first two, or the atmosphere and emotion of Moon & Antarctica. But still... This album is different from that, but there's different things to enjoy, its strengths are elsewhere.
For example Missed the Boat, my favourite one here, is one of their most radio friendly tracks, but it works really well, it's got a nice little riff and lyrics, and the "positiveness" of it is very refreshing. Then you got Spitting Venom, which is actually one of the few examples of those longer (more "progressive" if I can call them that) songs by the band where the track doesn't drag towards the end. Another song like that is The Stars are Projectors, while I'm not a fan of such "prolonged" songs on the first two albums (e.g. Lounge). I guess better production (+ more instruments) help here.
