Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank

Rating: 8.2/10
Modern Music Review
Day after day, good melody after good melody... A good melody means that it helps you to live present time, it also helps you forgetting the time. Time isn't important then, the important things are your emotions, your happiness, your smiles. What a beatiful thing to get meaning your precious time by music. Modest Mouse did this, they did this several times with previous records "Lonesome Crowded West", "The Moon & Antarctica", "Good News for People Who Love Bad News". Notably these are great records to sing with, to enjoy with.
Now this time we can sing 'We've got everything' along with this Issaquah formed distinctive indie rock band. And yes this album is that kind of album which is consecutive, exciting and intelligent at same time. So it's really 'We've got everything'. From beginning to end, it never loses its lovely sound. Isaac Brock tells a lot of things on the trot, the guitarist supports Brock's rapidly changing singing style with an amazing tune of guitar. In addition, on three songs we hear fresh voice of James Mercer from The Shins. (We've Got Everything, Missed The Boat, Florida)

"Invisible" takes quite powerful guitar lines, on "Spitting Venom" music comes totally as a complex, "Steam Engenius" is the hippiest one, "Education" near to become another "Float On", "Fly Trapped In A Jar" sustains the record one step forward. This song incredibly flows
like a waterfall. You've already heard first single, Dashboard, kinda upbeat disco-like indie rock song. There are only two indolent melody "Missed The Boat" and "Fire It Up". Following "Parting of the Sensory" and "March Into The Sea" have huge potential to influence every music lover. Because this two songs are one of the best work that they've created yet. Especially Isaac's 'Ha Ha Ha's on song "March Into The Sea" are worth hearing!

A person who dislikes a record like this shoudn't has an expectation on other Modest Mouse works. Pleasing tunes are everything of the record, and also interesting vocal style of Isaac Brock seperates Modest Mouse from other indie rock musicians. They are all delighted and in high spirits, they don't need a lucky charm, that's for sore!
MM picks: Education, Fly Trapped In A Jar, Parting of the Sensory, March Into The Sea.

I still have to hear this in its entirety.

Sounds good at first listen though.

A good album, but a terrible review. Seriously, atleast take the time to fix the spelling and grammatical errors. Not to mention the review basically says, "This album is good because it's good."
