This is so good. The song-writing is great. Brock's voice is awesome.

I agree, mostly. However, the rest of the songs are great too.

I've heard this album as well as the 'Build Nothing Out of Something' and 'Everywhere And His Nastly Parlour Tricks' EPs. Also I've heard some tracks from 'The Fruit That Ate Itself', 'Sad Sappy Sucker' and 'The Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About'. After hearing 'Good News For People Who Love Bad News' I still loved Modest Mouse and indeed my love for them grew. While yes it is true that some tracks from their earlier work are better (or simply different) I prefer this one. Not because of its popularity but simply because the others can get quite boring after a few listens... though this does have a few tracks I'm not fond of. So, I guess it can work both ways. A shorter album may have worked better: the length of the album means some of the tracks don't fit together - and others seemingly unnecessary entirely. I enjoyed the album on a whole: it's a very good album.
I'd give it 4.4/5.

I presume you were saying it in jest but if not it's a little harsh, isn't it? Just because 3-4 tracks on the album aren't to your (or my) taste doesn't necessarily make it a bad album. It's not a bad album in my opinion but to each his own.

I loved this album. Favorite songs: Bukowski, Satin in a coffin, Black Cadillacs. Favorite Lyric: "My friends, my habits, my enemies, they mean so much to me."
All was good

I think the last half of the album is the best. Black Cadillacs being my favorite.

I really enjoy this album. Im quite confused about all the negs for it.

Also, the recommended tracks for this review could use some redoing...

I just skimmed this and the only tracks that stuck out were World At Large (liked that a while ago) and Float On. I'll try and give it a full listen today or tomorrow.
