Let's all gaze wistfully into the distance and remember the glory days.
So this hearkening back isn't that wistful. Still irritated with them for cancelling their shows last year to work on the album though. Not a real reason and it RUINED MY BIRTHDAY.
since the last album came out as well. Argh, new album soon please!
I'd been hugely into the previous ones but never really clicked with it, then ooo, what is this? So many great songs.
been my favourite by far. It's a brilliant, epic album. Their others are good but as I've heard Lonesome all the way through so many times I always go back to that when wanting to hear a Modest Mouse song (usually Trailer Trash or Truckers Atlas). I'm old enough to remember two brilliant shows of theirs at The Garage maybe in 1999 and again in 2000. Their Scala show in 2004 with support from The Shins was a dream double headliner.
this one is probably the most underrated of theirs. I think it's probably a formative record for a lot of people as well, depending on how old you were when it came out,
but, it was the first of theirs i listened to, and afterwards i love almost all their other albums more. seriously, that moment where i first listened to Lonesome Crowded West was like being let in on a big secret.
