I only have the live album, and love it. where next o wonderful people of DiS? Ta.
There's Nothing Wrong With Love from 1994 which is a messy, energetic, bright-eyed album of pop gems, and Keep It Like A Secret (1999) which is much tighter and basically consists of a succession of great melodic alt-rock songs with trademark spiralling guitar solos.
Other than that, I've heard Perfect From Now On (which came between the above two) is much more epic and expansive, it seems to be many people's favourites. The new album is meant to be very good too. General consensus seems to be that Ancient Melodies Of The Future is the weakest one.
Then get Keep it like a secret.
from Perfect from now on = one of the best ever epic guitarfest noiseouts. Would give my mother's wig to witness it live.
both rock my world
'There's Nothing Wrong With Love' is their best, it's got In The Morning, Reasons, Car, Big Dipper and Distopian Dream Girl on it, which are absolute classics (I think 'Car' has made it onto every DiS mixtape I've done so far, and Distopian has the rather fantastic lyric of "My stepfather looks just like David Bowie, But he hates David Bowie
I think Bowie's cool
I think Lodger rules
I think my stepdad's a fool")
and it's got that shambolic, out of tune charm that early Modest Mouse records had.
Having said that, all their albums are class. Oh, and their MySpace has 4 tracks from the new album on it.
now! now now now!
