    I actually really like this song. It's chaotic... but it works.

    I love the fact that these lyrics come from a deep place in Isaac mind. This song is and should be loved by all true modest mouse fans.

    I don't get all the hate on this song, the brass section in this song makes it different to a lot of other stuff MM has done in a good way imo

    these lyrics are used repeatedly in old improv jams modest mouse and ugly casanova.

    Seems I'm one of the few who love this song... "We just wanna go walkin' 'round, feelin' what it's like to fall down."

    I kinda like it... all their songs are a bit strange anyway, don't you think?

    It's got a melody a step stomp rhythm, its good but bad... they have done much worse songs (dancehall sticks out like a saw thumb for example)

    I think we're all in agreement about this song - not the best out there. Lonesome Crowded West and We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank are my two favorite albums. Kind of on either end of their musical spectrum, but still. This sound nothing like anything on those... :(

    Fairly dreadful. However much I love Isaac, I will not excuse him for writing songs like this, and trying to market them under Modest Mouse. Yes, the sound has changed since the LCW days, and Yes, I don't really like Good News as much as LCW, or Long Drive, but at least the songs on that album can be considered good. This isn't a good song in any respect. Awful uninsightful lyrics, and no melody whatsoever. Sorry Isaac, but if this is a sign of things to come, I'm not pleased.

    Didn't seem to fit in with the other songs at first, but it's grown on me.

    What happened to Modest Mouse? This is garbage compared to Moon and Antarctica or Long Drive. Dear God, I am upset.
