This is my favourite Modest Mouse album and it only became better since I've been able to listen to in on vinyl.

I would think that anyone buying this item would already know the music on it, so I won't review the actual music (which I love - Modest Mouse if fantastic). The vinyl is well produced. It sounds great, has a quality jacket. No bells and whistles like cool inserts or anything as far as I remember (maybe some lyrics? Sorry, I'm not home to double-check). Just a good double album with good sound quality. A nice addition to my collection. The only down side to this item is that it contains a free digital download code - there is even a sticker on the album advertising this - and I was really excited that it was included. And then I see that the free download expired 2 months before I even bought the record! I feel ripped off. Why would they make it expire when the download code is contained inside the album that is purchased?? And the album is still being sold as though there is a download included. That pissed me off.

Format: Audio CD
On their major-label debut, longtime indie darlings Modest Mouse deliver an impressive effort that melds the best aspects of their previous albums into a logical extension of their offbeat sound. Fans of the Mouse will have trouble decrying their move to a major label, since they have certainly not "sold-out." Rather, this is easily their best and most cohesive album to date. Exploring themes of loneliness, desolation, and seclusion in modern life, The Moon & Antarctica weaves a dense, layered atmosphere that reflects these heady topics. Each track is quirky and completely unique, and when taken as a whole this can be considered the best "artsy" album to come out since Radiohead's OK Computer.
The album flows easily from the lovely "Gravity Rides Everything," which is propelled along by backwards drums, through the spooky epic "The Stars Are Projectors," before ending with the Fugazi-inspired heaviness of "What People Are Made Of." The lyrics, courtesy of frontman Isaac Brock, are just as impressive as the music. On "A Different City," Brock eloquently sums up television by growling, "They gave me a receipt that said I didn't buy nothing."
Every subsequent listen is guaranteed to reveal some hidden aspect of the music-like the sweeping cello and whispered vocals that create an arctic wind on "The Cold Part," or the delicate banjo plucking that accentuates the ballad "Perfect Disguise," or the frantic percussion that lends a jumpy, rush-hour feel to "Tiny Cities Made Of Ashes."
If all this doesn't sound the least bit modest, well you're right. But this Mouse should be bragging a little after an album this good.

I've just started listening to Modest Mouse and I just love them. So excited that I found another band with such great talent - every song is mesmerizing.

A lot of good music is about the balance between pop and experimental sounds that are not immediatly appealing. Sonic Youth continually wrestles with this, as the best example. Modest Mouse, and more specifically Issac Brock, the genius of the band, has managed an almost perfect major label debut. The songs all center around tight poppy hooks but then go off onto weird explorations. Brock's voice keeps its weird lisping quality but changes with each song, sounding psychotic in Tiny Cities but then gentle in Perfect Disguise. His lyrics, which alternate between "It was alright,yeah,ok" and grand philisophical explorations about time and space and God manage perfectly the tricky feat of being both laid back and intensely intrested. This album is essential for any one who likes indie pop/rock. Also,the extended version is worth its price if its about a dollar mre than the regualr, which is what I bought it at. The three extra tracks are cool at least, especially a craxy echocing Tiny Cities which is even weirder than the first.

You simply don't hear lyrics like those written in a Modest Mouse song, and this album contains Isaac Brock's best. "Your heart felt good it was dripped in pitch and made of wood" (Noah's Ark anyone?). The chord changes are simple, yet by the end of the song the guitars have spread enough flavor to create a distinct sound. MMs songs aren't driven by dominant melody lines, rather subtle riffs that create tension through their overlap (I think this is one of the reasons many struggle w/ MMs music). The song is not an opportunity for a lead guitarist to slide all over the neck of the guitar like a drunk on any icy street while the drummer thumps on the down beats and the bassist only hits the tonic of each chord...rather the song is about the chemistry amongst the percussion, the percussion oriented vocal lines, the oftentimes dancing bass line, and the lead guitar. The sum is greater than the individual parts. If you like that type of music and you like uncharacteristic lyrics, you'd love Modest Mouse. 3rd Planet is an awesome song, one of my favorites.

It's common for rock critics to label successful songwriters as poets. In most cases, I think the monicker is undeserved and unnecessary -- writing excellent songs is different from writing excellent poems. But Isaac Brock is genuinely a poet. His fractured lyrics and his mastery of repetition and his knack for simple but resonant phrases -- "it's hard to remember, it's hard to remember to live before you die" -- get to me every time. This is the band's best record. You can't go wrong by buying it.
