im about to buy this on amazon.
1.is it worth it?
2. if yes state why.
quick comments please.
I would say its darker and more atmospheric than Good People Who Love Bad News, which in my opinion was more a pop album.
Paper Thin Walls, Tiny Cities made of Ashes, Perfect Disguise and The Cold Part are all excellent songs that come to mind.
purchased for Â£4.30 with a quid for packaging. nice.
you will EVER spend, it's sooo much better than Good News, by several orders of magnitude.
Now you have to get Lonesome Crowded West, which is their best album. Polar Opposites and Trailer Trash are their two finest moments, I think.
Everwhere and his nasty parlor tricks any good?
that hasn't been mentioned is Sad Sappy Sucker. So I'll mention it!
Great album, their first recording but it came out much later into their career. Has Birds & Worms, the first Modest Mouse song I heard and the reason I love them so much, on it. Very lo-fi. The last 5 tracks are Isaac singing into his answer machine for fans to ring in and listen to. I don't think you can get it in the UK but if you manage to get hold of it somehow, you'll love it and be very happy.
Also, one of Pitchfork's best reviews
