Format: Audio CD
Compared to "Good News For People Who Love Bad News", this album is admittedly, not as astronomical. This said, how many albums live up to the quality the aforementioned album? Very few. It's an indie classic. For a band that has been around for so long, I am amazed they can put out an album of this caliber. It does not, by any means, live up to their former surrealism, and yet still manages to be a perfectly good album.

Great CD from a very underrated band. I wish they would release some new material.

This is the second Modest Mouse I've heard, since my daughter introduced me to them. Not quite as good as Good news, but not far off. I don't see any weak beginning. This album starts oddly, continues to be odd, and finishes oddly. Superb! Anyone who likes music in the rock tradition but out of the (pop/metal/industrial/blues/orchestral) tradition will find this album as interesting as Good News.

There is always a problem with following up a success. People expect either the same thing, or more flash but along the same lines. Also, you've heard this absolute new sound. Not so new the second time around.

But listen to this one by itself. Forget the first one while listening carefully to this. It rocks! Good melodies, fractured as they are. Good bass lines, also fractured. Fine percussion. Voices in harmony (not). This is not a sellout album. Great music. Keep on rockin'.

Two major themes of critics aimed at "We were dead.." are basically, (1) it is too commercial and over-produced compared to indie MM (along the same line as the criticisms of "Good News...") and (2) MM has not progressed beyond its excentricies (e.g., manic vocal stylings, jumpy medodies, quirky lyrics) and typical skewed (cynical + witty) view of things - see the Rolling Stone review, for example.

I partly agree with both criticisms, but -- not to sound wishy-washy - also disagree... Whether you like it or not, Modest Mouse had to evolve from its best CDs, Moon & Anartica and the Lonesome Crowded West... even if their evolution is not fully satisfying to early fans. It WOULD be great to see MM try a little less production for a change, and they DO seem a bit like they are retreading the past, and the themes and music of the CD do NOT always hang together (as the addition of guitarist Marr, is hit or miss or not noticeable)...

YET there ARE gems on "We were dead..." that are well worth the purchase and to sustain hope that MM still have a bright future... even if they may never (again) be critic's darlings. The fact that they were once is likely why current reviews of those same critics are often too negative - very hard to live up to!

So, compared to other MM discs I rate this as a 3.5 out of 5 STARS (but compared to most rock/alt. music out there is it a 4.5!).

Cheers from Motown south.
