Your favourite album?
If it's allowed I would probably say Building Nothing Out of Something but if that doesn't qualify I'm gonna say Long Drive Home.
Actually I might say Long Drive Home anyway.
I dunno. Moon and Antarctica? Sorry.
have to go with the best of Modest Mouse. Tee and indeed hee.
I was a bit of a late convert to MM and so totally adore GNFPWLBN and WWDBTSES. I'm having real difficultly loving the unpolishedness of the previous ones though. I think i need to give them more time.
Lovely band though
sounds like i should persevere... fanx
But the last three have all been fantastic
Can't wait for this new EP they've been working on
The Lonesome Crowded west
The Moon and antartica
Most of it is brilliant mind!
the former being my favourite. I've always planned on buying one of the older ones.
Wasn't it planned to come out months ago?
but no release date yet.
with an October or November release being the most likely
It was everything I liked about the earlier albums, but with all the prog pretensions taken out.
That said, i still haven't hear "we were dead.."
I listened to it so much that afterwards other Modest Mouse just didn't tickle me right.
It's fantastic from start to finish, no filler. But i really like We Were Dead.. too
1. the moon and antarctica
2. we were dead before
3. lonesome crowded west
4. this is a long drive
5. good news
although bukowski may be my favourite song, and it's that type of off-kilter greatness that i like so much on we were dead (e.g. march into the sea, fly trapped in a jar, education, steam engenius and invisible). and the ugly casanova album is also better than good for this reason.
the Sun Kil Moon album entirely made up of Modest Mouse covers? It actually shows up how strong the songwriting is when they're sung in such a different style and it still works.
but other then Ocean Breathes Salty I wouldnt say many of them get close to the originals. Isaaccs lyrics have always been amazing and never is this more evident then on this album & thats the main reasson I reccomend it.
should do an album of Sun Kil / Red House Painters songs?
It would only be fair.
or Lonesome Crowded West which are both followed quickly by Longdrive or Building Nothing.

closely followed by Moon & Antarctica.
to the extent that it's my favourite album, but I don't think it's a great album.
followed by the one with Convenient Parking and Shit Luck on woo woo.
