Good News for People Who Like Bad News is arguably Modest Mouse’s most cohesive album to date and thankfully they sacrifice none of the traits that make the band unique and exciting. The singular phrasing and manic yowls and yelps of lead singer and songwriter Isaac Brock are here in abundance, as are quirky melodies, oddly compelling lyrics, and jagged, inventive rhythms. They’ve expanded their once skeletal sound to include slurring, stomping horns (supplied by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band), banjo, violin, and keyboards, all of which help make the album delightfully diverse and full of surprises. It features a surprising Top 40 hit that’s anchored by an irresistible, scratchy guitar line (“Float On”), several frantic, off-kilter songs that somehow stay on the rails (“Dance Hall,” “This Devil’s Workday,” “Satin in a Coffin”) and some beautifully arranged slower numbers that are simultaneously edgy and moving (“Blame It On the Tetons,” “One Chance”). This is an enduring and imaginative piece of work by one of the more adventurous pop bands around.
