With No One's First, And You're Next, Modest has given it's fans something to tide us over until a new album is released. A lot of reviews I've been reading online have not been to kind to this release. It's as if they don't get that this a b-sides collection, and are treating it like a full fledged album. Something that surprises me about these so called "music critics", is that none of them have mentioned the track I Have It All(most). It has already been released twice before. Once on the Float On single and the other as a bonus track on the dual disc version of Good News. While it's a great track, it is my only complaint about the album. The rest of the album is great, I agree with the previous reviewer on that you can tell which tracks came from which sessions. And suprisingly some of the tracks do have that older Modest feel to them. My advice if you love Modest as much as I do, pick up this album. I'm sure you will love it.

These songs are good in their own right but as an album this just doesn't compare to their other work. The Whale Song is really the song on this EP that stands out the most. The deep bass and ambient atmosphere really make this a fantastic song for Modest Mouse's repertoire. I think they did this EP to help out the fans that wanted more and for that I thank them.

I'm a casual Modest Mouse fan, and randomly saw this in Barnes & Noble so I gave it a listen. Just after hearing the first few songs, I knew I had to have it, especially with the killer price of $10. My favorite song would have to be Guilty Cocker Spaniels, it's so catchy! I think any Modest Mouse fan would enjoy the songs on here.

Isaac, Jeremiah, and Judy are back again with another EP. This record features a much more relaxed, acoustic sound with the exception of the dark and spectacular "The Whale Song" and the hectic and jazzy almost-single "King Rat". I wouldn't rate it at their best work, but it certainly keeps the optimistic spirit Modest Mouse has had since their 2004 style shift in "Good News For People Who Love Bad News". Definitely one of their calmest works.

I'm not sure I could tell you precisely why, but I just don't particularly like it. It sounds like Isaac Brock + some other guys, not like Modest Mouse. Part of the difference between those two may just be the mix, with the vocals too high and a lot of the interesting stuff going on instrumentally buried a bit, but I don't think that's it. "The Whale Song" is a good example; nice fun instrumental stuff for the first 3 minutes, but the minute Isaac pops in everyone else stops doing anything particularly interesting. It's like they've decided engaging instrumental music and Isaac's vocals can't coexist at the same time, so whenever Isaac's around they become competent but somewhat bland accompanists. Since Isaac's present for most of the album, this doesn't work out too well. The result isn't really -bad-, but not something I particularly want to listen to.

If you like Modest Mouse for Isaac Brock alone, you'll probably like this. If you take a more holistic view and see Isaac as an accomplished vocalist who only truly shines when his vocals are enmeshed in great instrumental music, you probably won't. The same goes for "We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank", and I'm in the second camp, obviously.

Musically adventurous songs worth experiencing is how I describe this CD. This extended jam session of clever songs and riffs into headspace is my first introduction to Modest Mouse. I shall certainly get more of their music since this intrigued me. It has the sort of music that's good for long, solitary car rides and introspective moments. I enjoy music that does not seek a pop beat for the sake of a beat, but instead makes music for the fun of it. You have to listen to this album to catch those moments when a clever phrase collides with an even more clever set of notes and instruments.

Modest Mouse, a nearly two-decade old indie rock band highly criticized for their atheist lyrical themes, released their fifth album, No One's First and You're Next, on August 4, 2009. While the band shifts their usual hard rock style to a more ambient, chill tune, the band delivers exactly what their fans expect of them: a thought-provoking compilation of songs approaching mysterious life topics, from relationships to death.

Though initially biased in my innate love for the band and what they represent, I approached new Modest Mouse with an objective first listen, for I had not been in favor of the album's single, "Autumn Beds," which was previously released. "Autumn Beds" left me bored after a few listens, mostly because of the lack of lyrics and the song's hierarchy of need for the overpowering musicality. The rest of the album, however, was much more striking in terms of interest.

The album's title is the first thing that led me to think it was worthy of giving a listen. Though most bands' fans would love to listen to their favorites' new albums, No One's First and You're Next meant something deeper to me. Unaware of the band's intentions in this title, I believe it is used to represent all things in life that we initially fear, but we know we must do. Tasks without examples, without someone else going first and leading an example, are usually the most difficult, but also the most worthwhile and rewarding.

My favorite part of Modest Mouse's music, as with many bands, is the lyrics. This album is no exception. The band's singer and lyricist, Isaac Brock, leads an interesting interrogative imagery in songs such as "Guilty Cocker Spaniels" and "Satellite Skin." "Do you even believe that there's a race to be won?
