    I'd pay good money to see them play The Lonesome Crowded West. I wasn't able to get into Modest Mouse for awhile, but I burned this album last year and wow. Amazing from start to finish.

    It seems a fair amount of MM fans dont appreciate Good News to much, I personally think it is a really good album, and one of their best at that.

    "This is a Long Drive..." is their best album and my favorite... especially live. I'd pay, um, $100 to see that! ha!

    I agree that lonesome crowded west is their best album, but good news and we were dead are right up there too. Their only weak album imo is long drive.

    Isaac Brock was 22 when Lonesome Crowded West came out. Now he's in his 30s. Wouldn't you suppose that he's at a different place now in life where he wouldn't want to revisit his early career? It wasn't exactly his seminal album. That would be Good News..., because it's where all of his recognition comes from. It was his most championed album. The number of fans he gained from that album greatly outnumber the number of fans he had with all the prior albums. He still recognizes that people like the older songs, and he'll throw the older fans a bone with a Cowboy Dan here or there, but their concerts will always remain Good News...heavy.

    I agree that Issac's style has changed, at least musically, but for the most part the lyrics still have the same themes. It's just that they have become a bit ridiculous live-none of their songs really need two drummers, not even the new ones.

    Their albums in order of greatness overall as an album are...

    1. Long Drive (Perfect album together as an album and songs are great live.)
    2. M&A (Had everything from disco traxxx to epic crowd divers.)
    3. Lonesome Crowded (Still has the best singles.)
    4. We Were Dead (Solid album, a bit too ho hum, but still good.)
    5. Good News (Not sure where this one was going. Has most bad tracks.)

    Sad Sappy would be last. Building Something would be after the first three. And yes I missed when the shows were break your neck yelling dance fests. Now they're "look at your date to figure out if you're going to get some tonight but oh wait where is the nearest beer cart... do they take card?... oh wait, bro, float on!" shows.

    They played "Tiny Cities Made of Ashes" at the TI Festival last year. Is that a song they normally do?

    Yeah they play that one pretty often... 5th most often according to their very extensive setlist collective.

    Pretty sure yes. He cheaped out on some other song that we were expecting to kickass. Pretty sure this was still unsober Isaac. He didn't address the crowd much. Some guy threw a beanie on stage and yelled "I made you a beanie." It stayed on stage untouched for the duration of the show. I saw a roadie wearing it later.

    that would be an awful idea. modest mouse are not an "album" band, their a band that has like, 30 or 40 really great songs, and then 600 others that no one can figure out why they recorded them. but i also stand firm that every album has at least 5 really, really shitty songs on it, including lonesome crowded west.

    drugs make me talk stupid.

    There's one song that's below par, and it's "Long Distance Drunk", but everything else is amazing. People who think "Shit Luck" sucks need to pull their heads out of their asses.
