Can't even pick out a favorite song, cause there's too many good ones, but Lonesome Crowded West is my favorite overall MM album.

Pitchfork is pretty lame, but I remember really enjoying this documentary:


And even though it's not a "proper" album, I really like Building Something out of Nothing.

i like so many songs. slow ones are dope but desert/tundra and cockroach are some of the best. and the one that starts w/ isaac talking 'what's up? make lover?' and ends w/ 'they [people] ain't made of nothing but water and shit. alright!'
i kinda played em to death and haven't tried to listen to anything they've done in the last 8-10 yrs.

the never ending math equation one is good.  Pretty neat band.  Good to put on when drinking.  I also haven't listened to them in 15 years.

Night on the Sun could be a favorite, that whole EP was dope.

Building nothing out of something probably has the most re-play value.

I never actually listened to Night on the Sun, but have heard most of those songs on ....Nasty Parlour Tricks.
Good stuff yeah.

That Sun Kil Moon cover album of MM songs is worth listening to, if you're a fan of either.

All great, Lonesome Crowded West for sure however, for nostalgic reasons and things that I was going through at the time, Good News For People Who Love Bad News comes at second. As lame as this probably is, I love Shit Luck, that has to be my favorite song. It's the first song I heard of them through the Toy Machine ad in Misled Youth. I was 13 or 14 the first time I saw that video and heard the song. I'm 30 now and enjoy it just as much as the first time.

Lonesome crowded west is by far my favorite album.  Doin the cockroach is my favorite song, and that pitchfork documentary is dope.

I've seen Modest Mouse twice although they play mostly new shit and I never got into much past GNFPWLBN

Absolutely love modest mouse. My favorite album is sad sappy sucker and i also really enjoy their demo tapes. One song mistitled "feelings" can be found on youtube and that has to be my favorite song ever. The whistling at the end is beautiful.

My favorite is probably Lonesome Crowded West with This Is A Long Drive at a very close second. I like pretty much everything they've done except for Stranger To Ourselves. It has a couple decent moments, but as a whole it just felt like another indie rock band you'd hear in a Zach Braff film or something. Even Good News and everything that followed I thought was a pretty smooth transition to being a more accessible band, because the songs still had lots of interesting layers and weren't afraid to get weird, but I just can't say the same about their last release.

Man, good thread.

Moon and Antartica was good too.

But must agree, Lonesome Crowded West/This Is A Long Drive are the favourites for sure.

Ugly Casanova was also super good. Actually got a bunch of the Thomas Campbell artwork from that album tattooed.

Only got to see them play live once and they actually played a ton of old stuff.

I have nothing personal against MM, they make really good music. But I have an irrational disdain for them because they were on the same record label as Duster at the same time and MM got big while Duster didn't.

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.
