New Modest Mouse - Page 2

post #16 of 23
IMHO, the new album is great. First listen through, I was horribly disappointed. It's not really like anything from the albums I LOVE by Modest Mouse (This is a Long Drive..., Lonesome Crowded West, Sad Sappy Sucker). I think if I were to have heard this sixth months ago, I would have outright hated it. I wouldn't have been able to stand a band like Modest Mouse to deliver such poppy hooks. The Modest Mouse I fell in love with was the one that was lyrically driven (the lyrics didn't make a lick of sense, but it was great to ponder). But my taste in music has changed, I can now enjoy something this polished and socially acceptable. The lyrics are still there, for the most part, they just seem a little more upbeat and optimistic.

I don't download stuff so I just got this. This opinion is coming from a "Lonesome Crowded West/Long Drive" fan who thought the band took a small step back with "Moon," and really did not like "Good News." The band always seemed to have an intuitive flow to me until "Good News" rolled around. "Good News" seemed very artificial to me.

After listening to the first 10 songs or so, there is definitely a lot of Good News sound in it, but it seems like it may have that MM signature flow back. Of course I won't know if I really like it or not until I have had it for a few weeks or so, but honestly, there's a lot more promise than I expected.

It's decent, I think it kinda grows on you too... definitely nothing brilliant though.

"Good news" took awhile to grow on me, but this newest one caught me on the first listen.

Modest Mouse + Johnny Marr = AWESOME!

I'm not a fan of old Modest Mouse. I AM a fan of NEW Modest Mouse. This album is GREAT!

I downloaded it from Zune market place. Gave it a listen. I liked it, but took it out of my library for now because I've filled my zune and there are a lot of other things that I would listen to first.....
