I picked up the new Modest Mouse album today, and I just thought I'd write a quick word now as I listen to it for the first time. A first impressions post if you will.

I think its a bit of a return to the somewhat chaotic nature of their earlier stuff. It still sounds well produced, but its not anywhere near as glossy and, well nice, in comparison to Good News anyway.

At the same time its an obvious progression (rather than a regression) from the albums prior. Like The Shins, you can feel that they're going from strength to strength in their writing, and particularly arranging.

I gotta say, I really like it. Im so glad that Smitty introduced me to them way back when, he's a champ. Even if he pikes on winning me pizza for dinner!
