Not being a negative nancy, just recalling that I listened to "Good News..." and recall scrunching up my face whilst wondering what the hell was going on.

EDIT: djdorama, okay fine... this is good.

good news was probably not a good place to start, though it's where i started. it's much more poppy, much less indie.
aka not their best

Am I the only person that never really listens to What People are Made Of because Life Like Weeds acts as a perfect closer.

Life Like Weeds is good, but What People Are Made Of is the left field song that this excellent, excellent album needed. That last scream from Isaac and the last punch in the chest to finish it makes me reach for the play button to let Third Planet tickle my soul all over again, also Stars Are Projectors is absolutely genius..amazing disc

Life like Weeds is the far better closer, I agree, but I don't find myself skipping What People are Made of cause I think its a pretty neat song. Would've been better if they'd switched up the order of the two, but what can ya do.

Nice job on the review, btw

I don't like this as much as I used to, they could definitely have cut some of the weaker tracks but this is still great.

I found this used the other day and bought it without having listened to a previous Modest Mouse release and I have to say it is really good. Pretty much exactly the kind of sound I've been looking for lately so the length has made repeat listens essential, especially since the flow is so well mapped. Isaac Brock is a trip, all of his one-liners are ace. So far I've had favorites based on the day of the week and today it is "Wild Packs of Family Dogs"/"Paper Thin Walls". Repeat listens might either deplete this high or prove worthy but I like it.
