    The newer stuff is pretty cool and the whole Marr thing is nice, but Isaac Brock is too happy now to write anything that powerful again.
    True, but I like the interesting style that's seen on their later albums. Like "Float On", which is truly awe inspiring and in my opinion one of the greatest songs of the past decade.

    The Moon and Antarctica is my favorite album of all time, so...I'll let you go.

    That's my favorite Modest Mouse album, although Lonesome Crowded West is great, too.

    Discounting the vocals, Death Magnetic was fairly good. Reload left a very bad taste in my mouth.

    Although they did miss out on an amazing bass player...

    I am pretty sure the concentrated blasts of hard rock on Metallica made Metallica a household name. They sold a good amount of records before that, but with very little radio airplay. They didn't even make a video until "One" in 1988.

    That's because apparently they had an anti-music video stance until ...Justice was released.

    That song is good, but give me "3rd Planet" or "We've Got Everything" over it any day.

    Those songs are great, too.

    I liked Float On; the way it goes together with The World At Large is really cool. Try it on piano!

    But I also think that album had better tracks--namely, "The Ocean Breathes Salty." Some of Brock's best lyrics to date.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Actually, I take back my statement about Float On. Ocean Breathes Salty is indeed my favorite track off of that album.
    Also, I just listened to We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank in it's entirety, and I just don't get why it got some of the flak that it did. I mean, 3/5 stars from Rolling Stone. WTF??? Some of the tracks are just pure genius, namely "Dashboard," "We've Got Everything," "March into the Sea," and "Little Motel."

    RS has been a joke for 25 years.
