  • I felt like We Were Dead was Good News v2. Thats whyi didnt like it all that much. Dashboard is basically float on 2. But Spitting Venom is still great. First concert I ever went to.

  • the best thing MM ever put out had gotta still be Building Nothing Out of Something to me. Idk, something about how well the album flows together even though its just a comp of B sides is astounding to me. It doesn't shy away from the weird and I'm super into the almost "BS"ness of some of the songs.

  • i'm willing to take whatever comes at me but.. i like strangers to ourselves. sugar boats, ansel, and wicked campaign are 3 of my fave modest mouse songs. and if one of you tells me i need to listen to more of their music check my last fm (motelnoelle) i know their groove

  • The earliest raw stuff is the absolute best. The feeling they put into the early stuff is so much more interesting and relatability than the later stuff. Modest Mouse is similar to the Faint and how the progression almost got less authentic at the end.

  • I agree that Strangers to Ourselves is their worst album to date. But something worth noting.. This is the first album without Eric Judy(Isaac Brock’s main songwriting partner and childhood friend) Isaac Brock said in interviews building up to recording/release of the album, how difficult it was without Eric Judy being a part of the process. They saw multiple producers to help out with the album(Big Boi from OutKast being one of them)

  • I wish he mentioned Building Nothing out of Something, No one first and youre next, and Everywhere and his nasty parlor tricks. All pretty good collection of tracks that have some of my fav songs by Modest Mouse, Building Nothing is especially one of my favorites with its sadly relating depressive and personal seeming lyrics. The side b kinda sounds very bi polar, or like it was written by someone with borderline personality disorder, I think it gives a very good perspective on what its like I may be wrong tho, just my thoughts. (Also FREAKIN love No one's first and you're next.)

  • What about Building Nothing out of Something and This is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About? Those are two great albums from them. You even talked about Sad Sappy Sucker, which was a rerelease. I agree about The Moon & Antarctica. Not really one of my favorite albums from them. I do think you are right about Good News For People Who Love Bad news. I will say that the album was so successful I kind of got sick of hearing it.

  • Lonesome Crowded West and Long Drive both came out when I was in high school and I was a gigantic fan of the band at that time. I saw them play live countless times during this era and they were fantastic. When Moon and Antarctica came out I was actually immensely disappointed by it. It wasn’t the songs, most of which I already knew through live bootlegs, but just the sound of the record which just seemed so flat, distant, and over-processed compared to their earlier records. I actually like the record a lot more now than I did then but I pretty much agree with where it’s placed in this list. There’s something so raw and earthy about Long Drive and Lonesome Crowded West that I don’t think they ever recaptured. And those records did really well capturing the vibe of the place they were from, which was roughly where I was from. Both top tier records for me. Also, I would include Building Something out of Nothing in that top tier which I think has some of their best songs.

  • I love Long Drive and think it is evey bit as good if not better than Lonesome. Antarctica is great but I agree that it is a teir below the two previous. That said I feel that Good News is an absolute masterpeice, their best albulm, and as near a perfect album as can be. I was among those hating on it when it was released because the singles weren't (and still aren't) my favorites, and the overall sound was such a departure from what I liked about the band. I wasn't ready for the banjo and pump organ. The reason that such a drastic change of style works here is that the songs are just so fucking good that you could perform them with kazoos and slide whistles and their quality would shine through. Seriously 80% plus of these tracks are the best track on the album. Also I think you may have accidentally cut your placement of Building Nothing out of Something in the edit. Might wanna sneak that in and re-publish before there is a riot.

  • Good News is spectacular. I think their emotional content was amazing and the bump in instrumentation was awesome. Float On is still one of my favorite songs of encouragement, alongside Railroad Man by the Eels. Bukowski is probably my favorite MM song.

  • Good News is my favorite album despite not liking a few songs. Blame it on the Tetons is my favorite song by them. The Lyrical and musical depth of Tetons is so understated and nuanced, truly poetic stuff. World at Large, Ocean Breathes Salty, Good Times, One Chance, Float On, Satin in a Coffin...all great songs that hit all over the spectrum, and variety is something I highly value in an album.

This is just a list of the projects I listen too. Never listened to long drive to much outside of dramamine and ohio.
