Bands are bound to progress their sound, that's what it's about, growing as musicians. If they don't progress there is no point. You can't expect a band to keep writing the same songs over and over. Yes, Modest Mouse have significantly changed, but there's no need to hate.
"Why are you judging people so damn hard, you're taking your point of views a bit too far." - Isaac Brock (from Edit the Sad Parts on the Interstate 8 EP 1996)
Why can't I have a tail like that? Is it fair that I must live my life inferior simply by design. If I could chose to have a tail then I would have a tail but because of how I was born I must live my whole life wishing I had a tail...
Wow! Disappointing. I mean, I know they are big now, but so big that they get their own personally designed animal costumes for band photos? That I didn't know until just now, and it about made me vomit.
