Album of the Month: March 2007

Modest Mouse: We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank

This album rocks. And why shouldn't it with an appearance from James Mercer (The Shins) on three tracks, and new Modest Mouse guitarist Johnny Marr, formerly of The Smiths.

After first appearances this album may seem as long-winded as the title would have you believe, but it doesn't fail to continuously rock.

Honestly for me 'The Parting Of The Sensory' alone is worth the purchase of this album.

This year is turning out to be one hell of a year for music, and its only March.
