I didn't care overly much for their last two, but the new album is a pleasant surprise. Not as good as the first three, but still very enjoyable. There's a lot of diversity here.

My favorite track:

Surprisingly enjoyable. I didn't have high hopes after the singles. It's nice to see a band like MM not resting on its laurels after almost twenty years going, but continuing to push their boundaries. "Wicked Campaign," in particular sounds like nothing else they've put their name on.

Excited to give it a spin tonight.

I think "The World at Large" might be my favourite Modest Mouse song.

This is out as well today? Between this and the new Kendrick I'm sorted for the next few days.

I found it quite uninspiring, at least first up. Lyrically, musically, vocally. Felt like a lot of half-cooked ideas.

On the upside I quite like Lampshades on Fire, Coyotes, Pups to Dust, The Best Room and Of Course We Know, that's a third of the album, so hopefully it grows on me.

But my god, Pistol is absolutely atrocious. One of the worst songs I've ever heard by a band I like.

Look forward to hearing it tomorrow, I've enjoyed everything they've released from it quite a bit.

News didn't get posted here, but they're claiming they'll release a follow up album extremely soon. Will be interesting to see if / when that happens.

Well, in the new rolling stone Issac talks about the amount of pot and booze that was consumed during the sessions.. Pistol sounds like the one track that seemed liked the result of those substances.

I had to turn that horrible song off after about a minute. It was like torture trying to get through it.

Anyways, the new album is semi decent, but not something I'll listen to very often. The previous 2 albums are much better, especially Good News For People Who Love Bad News, which is a great album.

Hey Modest Mouse, an 8 year wait for this album seems a bit of a stretch. This is certainly not in the same stratosphere as "Good News For People Who Love Bad News" or "The Moon & Antarctica" What have you guys been doing with time because it isn't reflected in this. Overall, fairly average.

Interesting interview:

Isaac Brock Explains Modest Mouse’s 8-Year Absence: ‘I Wanted to Learn About Mycelium’ - Speakeasy - WSJ

I love this quote:

I have to not oversell what I’m trying to say. I can’t “Bono” it.
