This is by far and away the best album I've heard for quite some time, yet at the same time, I feel like it's been overlooked, by critics and music fans alike. I'm not sure why, because it's such a great album.
If you're a Modest Mouse fan, this is a definite must have. Even if you've never heard Modest Mouse, this should still be in your collection. I could listen to this CD again and again and not tire of it.
Slow, soft and melodic in some places, and angry and hard in others, it should satisfy everybody. Isaac sings most songs, with John Orth singing backup in some, in Smoke Like Ribbons he sings by himself. Their voices sound great together.
Stand-out tracks: Barnacles, Hotcha Girls, Smoke Like Ribbons, and Cat Faces.
You owe it to yourself to get this CD!!
