Well obviously the Pixies are a big influence on MM but the lyrics, Isaac's voice, and overall sound completely separate the two bands for me.

yeah... i dont get why one would think that really. theres obviously a Pixies influence, as Vodash stated, but it's not an incredibly obvious one. plus theres a lot of uniqueness and creativity here

Well the sad thing for me is that I see a LOT of Pixies in MM. When I heard Breakthrough for the first
time I almost jumped.
And I hear a LOT of similarities in the voice. Actually, the voice and the vocal manner are the most
Pixies-like aspects on the album.
I hope to get over it though. I finished the album in it's entiriety for the first time just this day
during a 2-hour traffic jam.

Yeah I'd say the Pixies influence is p obvious

But that doesn't take anything away from them

Should probably move further down the catalogue to LCW and TM&A.

Every band in history is influenced by Pixies. True story.

Modest mouse put those influences to great use. I think it really helped them define their sound.

Dude listening to this album at night in bed with your eyes closed is probably the closest to any sort of heaven you're likely to get.
