Probably the best since the Lonesome Crowded West.
and type in 'new modest mouse', you'll get pages and pages of opinions about it. It's been discussed quite a bit!
Short answer: yes, it's brilliant.
it is very good, and seems to be getting better by the day
There's so much filler to wade through, I just can't be bothered anymore. I'm sticking with Good News if I ever need a Modest Mouse fix.
News my friend is the one filled with filler..... Blame It On The Tetons, Devils Workday.... those pointless interdludes anyone?
Yes its a magnificant album.
is certainly not filler. Nor is Devil's Workday...
But yes, get the new album, it's awesome.
is one of the best songs on Good News!
...'Good news...' or 'We Were Dead...' have filler on them, and if you think they have then you are a silly sausage. Every song on both of those albums is great, and the short interludes on 'Good News...' aren't filler as they work with-in the context of the album.
Let's be honest, 2007 has hardly been a good year for albums so far and you could do a LOT worse than picking up the new MM.
shoulda thought twice bout the Interludes maybe devils workday but Tetons i really dont like, it shoulda been replaced with I've Got It All (most) and i will stic by my guns! RAWR RAWR!
Read the CMG review. Spitting Venom is great. Don't bother with the rest. Too long, tepid and dull.
