Insane release day status #2: I enjoy Flower Boy and Igor, but I've been looking forward to Tyler really rapping again, and this project is that and then some. Dude goes absolutely fucking nuts on this thing, just hit after hit. Feels so good to hear him just go in with his current level of artistic maturity. Maybe my new AOTY.
Insane release day status #1: Some purists may hate it, but this Modest Mouse album is great, actually. My expectations were optimistic, but tempered, and I was really pleasantly surprised. Easily their most consistent and enjoyable since Good News.
