New Modest Mouse Album = Delicious

The new Modest Mouse album, We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, is just gorgeous (but what else is new?) Parting of the Sensory and Education stick out to me right now as being particularly amenable to putting on repeat, but all of the songs are great. I love that they've produced nearly an album a year for 10 years now - spread across three labels - and nearly every song on every album has been a keeper. Their sound has changed substantially throughout, but it has always been Quality, and the themes are stable.

Your orders are to listen to the album now. It takes a few spins to settle in, but when it does, wow.
