Stupid law school. I didn't even know Modest Mouse came out with a new album. Any thoughts on it? And just so I know how you roll, which of their previous albums do you prefer?

i liked "The Lonesome Crowded West" "This is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About" and "Building Nothing out of Something"

I'm not quite sure why i like their new album. you ever listen to an album and then after one or two listens, you somehow feel so familiar with the music as if you had been listening to the album for years? their new album fits perfectly within their body of work.

And although I've gotten used to Isaac Brock's herky-jerky vocals, this album is generally a bit more subdued and less grating.
