Love the diversity of this album. You've got long and short songs, hard hitting and soothing ones. It's really a good collection.

There's not much to be said about it. Excellent. A milestone in alternative rock.

It took me a little while to realize that this was my favorite Modest Mouse record, but this definitely takes the cake. It's such genuine lyricism from Isaac, aided by perfect melodies and drum beats.

On a side note, the Pitchfork documentary on this album is awesome for any diehard MM fans. It's really cool seeing the thought processes behind the lyrics.
