The Beatles had "Hey Jude". The Rolling Stones had "You Can't Always Get What You Want". The Smiths had "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore". Soft Cell had "Tainted Love". Wham had "Careless Whispers".
And Belle & Sebastian, thankfully, have "This Is Just A Modern Rock Song". There is simply no reason to attempt living without this excellent single.

Coming off of Boy with the Arab Strap, this is Belle & Sebastian at their finest moment. Four perfectly produced songs, each expressing a different ideal of indie-pop glory.

B & S are one of the foremost creative musical visionaries of the modern times--I just got this CD yesterday and I can't put it down...This group orates beautifully crafted stories about girls and boys and a dog on wheels. Owning this band's music has been one of the most gratifying experiences I've had...

4 and a half stars, really. And at the time, they were actually six boys and two girls... but anyway. Yes, twelve dollars plus shipping is a lot to pay for four songs, but in this case, you should strongly consider it. "This is Just a Modern Rock Song" is one of the best songs Belle & Sebastian have ever recorded, and indeed, one of the best songs of the 1990's. It is a sonic epic along the lines of "Hey Jude" or "You Can't Always Get What You Want" (hyperbole not present), and the beauty of it is, they're not even aiming there. Seven-minute songs nowadays tend to be pretentious, grandiose, derivative, and devoid of subtlety, musical or lyrical.... "Modern Rock Song" is none of those things... it's honesty and simplicity are its greatness.
The other three songs are top-notch B&S as well. On the whole, I'd say this EP provides more essential listening than all of "Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant". Shop accordingly...

Slow Graffiti is one of the best songs ever recorded....I'm not a huge Belle and Sebastian fan, but this song is truly amazing...
