modest mouse is easily one of the best indie bands of all time... your right that the best song on the new cd is definately missed the boat, then i like spitting venom. i dont think the cd as a whole though comes near to there older stuff though. i guess i would rank them
7 sad sappy sucker... its just to raw and un-produced, but lots of good ideas
6 moon and antartica...
5 we were dead before the ship even sank
4 good news for people who love bad news
3 long drive for someone with nothing to think about
2 building something out of nothing
1 lonesome crowded west
i like all there cd's but thats how i would rank them..... i could talk about this band forever.
