Dramamine and Talking Shit About a Pretty Sunset are two incredible songs, two of the best in the great Modest Mouse catalog. The rest are pretty bad. I'd hoped it would grow on me—their next three albums are three of my favorites—but after two years, I still don't enjoy most of it. There are bits of brilliance sprinkled throughout, like the first 90 seconds of Beach Side Property, but overall I guess it's just not for me.

Nice debut album of Modest Mouse, they really brought some weird, twangy, sounds in this album. Although it think that sounds was taken to another level with Lonesome Crowded West, this is still a good debut album from one of the most beloved indie rock bands of all time.

maybe it doesn't have the instant classics that other MM albums have but it's a consistent and gorgeous listen.

Pretty good indie tunes, I like the "sound" it has from the poor recording equipment, whenever I listen to this it makes me want to drive out west and just chill to this album
