the smell of cigarettes; vintage parlor guitars; vinyl playing in the background- this album feels like standing just outside of reality watching everything unfold with eerie and heart-wrenching similarities to your own life. it feels like an elevator that never stops, with music that really catches you with just the right amounts of melancholy and mystery. Truly incomparable, this album is a standout through each and every track.
It takes a lot to make me really cry. Modest Mouse has made me cry a total of 2 times, probably. This album, especially Styrofoam Boots, has made tears flow with almost every track. Priceless gold right here.
