Modest Mouse...now there's a good band. No where even NEAR the quality of Matthew Good. But hey, it's impossible to be as good as him, isn't it?

i heard old modest mouse stuff before and hated it...still kind of do. I have Sirius and they were playing some of the other tracks, not just float on, so i kind of got an album preview that way..purchased..and i must say i am pleasantly surprised.

You get away from me. You get away from me.

I prefer The Moon and Antartica to Good News for People who love Bad News. Is that a good thing?

Chyeah. But Boukowski is better.

 

There's this one creepy-ass song on the Good News but its title slips my mind. I have to skip it every time because I think someone's going to kill me.

No I like that one. The creepy one is number 9 or 10 and it says something about a river and people being lost.

Never heard older stuff but Good News For People Who Love Bad News is really awesome. Every song seems so different from another. It's a unique experience every time you listen to it.

i've resurrected this thread because i've been listening to their latest album good news for people who love bad news for four straight days and i've fallen in love with it.

 

a few songs on it don't really appeal to me, like dance hall or bukowski, but blame it on the tetons, ocean breathes salty, float on, the world at large, bury me with it and just about every other song are absolutely amazing.

 

it's easily the best album of 2004, in my opinion.

 

there are a few lyrics in some of the songs that just blow my mind.

 

ocean breathes salty - you wasted life why wouldn't you waste death.

bury me with it - we were shooting at a mound of dirt, well nothing was broken and nothing was hurt.

blame it on the tetons - no my dog won't bite you. though it had the right to. go and give her credit, cuz she knows i would've let happen.

all those eager actors gladly taking credit. for the lines created by the people tucked away from sight.

and my favourite line of the moment;

everyone's a building burning. with no one to put the fire out. starring at the window looking out. waiting for time to burns us down.

 

if you haven't already, i encourage you to buy the album, or if you must download a track off kazaa or whatever you use to download music illegally.

everyone's a

When I was first listening to Moon & Antartica I found Brock's voice annoying, but it grows on you. It sounds a little different on 'Good News..'. Good News... is my favourite album of 2004'. 'Satin in a Coffin' and 'The Good Times are Killing Me' are also damn good.

Yeah his voice really does take some getting used to.

 

Gee, Dance Hall and Bukowski are two of my favourites on the album. Go figure.

The singer's voice can get sorta annoying sometimes, but aside from that, I like Modest Mouse, the lyrics are pretty good especially.

They're growing on me. I used to skip over them, and now I don't.
