1297. Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank

This is MM's most successful commercial LP. "Good News" was great but this disc is just solid through and through - sure it is more mainstream, but it's as good as mainstream can get. When Johnny Marr was announced as a new member I took a small, but warm shit in my pants. The result of is inclusion is interesting - there isn't anything Smiths like on here, but instead the songs do have a very strong 80s pop sensibility to them, which I love - he also added a certain of reason into the Modest Mouse sound, which I love.

9.3 out of 10
