Fav. Track: Trailer trash
Least Fav. Track: Shit luck
Such an amazing album
The album is just absolutely fantastic. The music is great but what stands out from the album in my opinion are the lyrics. There is something so beautiful about the simple sincerity mixed with clever metaphors and symbolism. Lines like „The years go fast and the days go so slow“, „Short love with a long divorce“ „Everytime you think you're talking you're just moving the ground - Everytime you think you're talking you're just moving you're mouth“, „I'm Trying to drink away the part of the day that I cannot sleep away“ hit you in such a strangely relatable way. You truly feel Brock's depression through his delivery as he sings incredibly powerful and tragic lines as though they don't even matter.
The Music is also great. There are some really catchy lines mixed with really heavy and energetic sections and the band's delivery, the albums mix and overall sound create an amazing mood that's notable the entire album even though the songs are very different.
I enjoy the album in it's entirety even though there are a couple of tracks that I wouldn't say are great, but still work really well on the album in the greater context while listening track by track. The highlight of the album in my opinion are the tracks Cowboy Dan and Trailer Trash which are just truly amazing songs, that hit incredibly hard.
Words can almost not describe how I feel about this album, but this was my attempt for what it's worth. Definitely one of my favourite albums of all time and would recommend to anyone who hasn't given it a listen!
Only getting to hear this in Jan 19.
Initially felt it was a little too Pixies sounding in parts but quickly found it to be much more varied. 11 of the 15 songs I rate very good with only "Shit Luck" not really landing for me. Look forward to listening to some more of their stuff
doin' the cockroach, yeah
This is THE MM album. Raw, lo-fi recording techniques bring out the unhinged, yet beautiful edge to Brock's vocals. The more his production value goes up, the less raw energy comes through in his vocals and the less powerful his songs feel. This is truly one if the best indie albums of all time.
I'm not sure Modest Mouse will ever do better than this. Only a couple of weaker notes toward the end keep this from being five star.
Fav tracks: Cowboy dan, Styrofoam boots (It's all nice on ice alright), Bankrupt on selling

very unique sound. It has its highs and lows
Lo fi and raw in the right ways, and plays around with dynamics. Very dark at times.
