Modest Mouse Strangers to Ourselves

After making fans wait 8 years, Modest Mouse is back with Strangers to Ourselves. The Washington band graduated college rock and had a brief taste of big time success with "Float On." But, disappointingly for Greg, they haven‘t used this extended break to make any sonic shake-ups. It’s more of the same - almost like lead singer Isaac Brock has been sleeping these past years and woke up just prior to recording. He says Trash It. Jim wonders why all the shade, Greg?! True, Modest Mouse does one thing, but they do it really well. The album is admittedly a few tracks too long (especially the track "Pistol"), but Jim thinks the band really succeeds at giving listeners a lilting, wistful, psychedelic sound that also delivers pop hooks. He says Buy It.
