    I love Modest Mouse. I'm starting to warm up to We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, I didn't really like at first but after a few listenings its very good. It still can't touch theyre older stuff, but that was just amazing.

          As much as I like Marr, I don't think he's done anything to improve them as a group.

            "their name derives from a passage from the Virginia Woolf story "The Mark on the Wall" which reads "...and very frequent even in the minds of modest, mouse-coloured people" -wikipedia .

            i'm pretty sure it's talking about death being frequent. i can't recall.

            Their latest album is their best album since The Lonesome Crowded west.

            which is one of the most perfect albums ever made.

              I saw modest mouse on ACL.......

              They did not play like people who knew how to play their instruments.....

              The songs I've heard of theirs on the radio were good, however. I'm not real familiar with them outside of this.....

                  I actually dig the new album quite a bit.

                    I understand. Ignorance is bliss, ya know.

                    It's way to hot to be January. I hate it. I want to move to Norway with Gopher666.

                          one of my favorite albums of all time.. definitely my fav. modest mouse album..

                          honestly they are all great.. with the peak being M&A.. the new stuff is aiiiight.. but it just doesnt have that killer sound that they held as a trio.. much more.. "organic"

                            So I got The Moon and Antarctica a few days ago and have listened to it a few times now. Great stuff. Which other albums of theirs are worth checking out?
                            I love you, you goober!
