Sooo underrated. It's a 9/10 and still probably my fourth favorite album of theirs

our ideas held no water, but we used them like a dam.

I think Parting Of The Sensory is my favourite Modest Mouse track and possibly the best track Johnny Marr has been involved with since the Strangeways Here We Come sessions!

Don't get why everyone hated it, most all songs I could listen to 3 times in a row.

I got into Modest Mouse after Good News, but this was my first anticipated release from them. This was exactly what college-age me wanted.

Has anyone noticed that the drums in the album don't hit as hard as the ones in LCW?

Modest Mouse became my favorite band after I fell in love with their first three albums, and for awhile I didn't bother to give this a listen. Boy am I glad I final did. When people throw the word "sellout" around, they're not entirely correct. Sure the sound is more accessible, but the lyrics are still uncompromising. Missed the Boat, Little Motel, and Spitting Venom contain some of Brock's best work lyrically, while Dashboard, We've Got Everything, and People as Places As People are the band's most danceable songs. There are some stinkers (Fly Trapped in a Jar and Steam Engenius), but they tend not to stand out too much. Still never a dull moment, even when the band isn't at its strongest.
