Format: Audio CD
The album's about death. We'll all float on? The common misinterpretation is as follows: "Modest Mouse sold out and 'Float On' is the signature track of their apostasy." There are two kinds of Indie-snobs: dilettantes whose entire purpose of being is to lash out at any act seeking mainstream exposure - sadly, this section of Indie-snobs are becoming more numerous with every passing year and Indie-snobs that actually understand music. I am neither. But what I can offer is the obvious. Lyrically and musically, this album remains true to the band's Indie roots. True, its polished. Which might as well be the apocalypse for those nostalgic for the days of Sad Sappy Sucker and Interstate 8.

Lyrically, Issac Brock deals with some old themes: death, solitude, movement, and stillness. The album is dark, profound, and has a coherent conceptual unity; once again drawing a parallel to the band's best studio album, The Moon and Antarctica (contrary to those who worship Lonesome Crowded West). This album, however, falls short of the near-perfection that was The Moon and Antarctica. Its good nonetheless, radio play be damned. "The World at Large", by the way, shows how far Issac and company has come since songs like "Broke" or "Bankrupt in Selling". They aren't afraid of trying something new - ostensibly for a new crowd.

First Modest Mouse I have heard, recommended by my daughter, who likes only selected songs. Hey, this entire album rocks. For old rockers like me, the new indie stuff runs the gamut from absolute crap to sublime. Some groups run both ends on one CD. Not Modest Mouse. Almost all of this one gets onto my iPod.

Modest Mouse is rocky, soft, jazzy, harsh, harmonious, discordant, and provocative in turns and sometimes at the same time. One thing they are consistently is innovative. Just listen to "Satin in a Coffin". All baby boomers who are not deaf yet should listen to this one. It's too good to leave to the Gen-Xers, or their successors.

Format: Audio CD
The boys from MM aren't getting any younger and as we all get older and realize that life is short and we only get "one chance", we tend not to hate everything as much as we did in our confused, ignorant and angry youth. Yes this album is softer than their previous which I grew up with but I would be embarrased as a MM fan to hear a new album that didn't grow up with them. The natural progession for many artists is to start angry and evolve from there. I expect everyone who disses this album because it's "not the same MM" is probably in their teens and early twenties, still angry at a world impossible to understand but wait til they reach 27,28.. then they'll realize that it is impossible to understand and everyone just needs to relax and not sweat the small stuff.. like a new MM album. Just let the new, fresh artists play with angst and let the MM boys age and experiment kids...

One fantastic CD. How can someone put down a cd by saying it's "too creative"?! Anyhoo, this band is even better live. Check them out if you ever get a chance. It was definitely worth the $20 (which won't ever happen again) i payed for for their show.

One reviewer below suggested you need to be on drugs to enjoy this album?!!! Dude - with 5 stars I would have thought you would say something more positive about the music!?
So minus having to monkey with the funny stuff - is this just plain good music or not?
Well, you gotta decide that for urself... but you might want to try before you buy on this one. ;) You will thank yourself later, I promise you!
