CD Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD/EP is actually 3 versions of a single song, a collaboration between Northwest indie rockers Modest Mouse and the recently broken-up 764-Hero. I'm not much of a fan of the latter, but they are used here quite well, and this is truly Modest Mouse at its best.The single is one of the greatest Modest Mouse compositions ever recorded, and easily the best "really long" song I own. At over 14 minutes, "Whenever You See Fit" is pure musical genius, the sparse songplay of the lead singer of 764-Hero, mixing with Isaac's shouted words, squeezing in between soaring guitars and drums. It's brilliant and beautiful and affecting for the entire 14 minutes. In fact, if anything, I wished this song could have continued even longer. it's that good.The other 2 versions of the song on the EP are shorter dance/DJ re-mixes that really don't add anything to the music. I don't think I've listened to them more than once. But the CD is worth the purchase for the one single alone, which I believe is not available on any other Modest Mouse release."
A nifty lil EP

"I hesitated at getting this EP for my great fear of remixes. Anyone who has ever heard They Might Be Giants' "World's Address" remix or more recently, the remix of Tenacious D's "Explosivo" would understand where I am coming from.The first track is a long 14 minute jam that doesn't seem to get boring at the least, and should provide sufficient entertainment for any Modest Mouse fan despite its endless redundancy. (I will be honest, I haven't heard anything else from 764-HERO, so this review is from a Modest Mouse fan's perspective). The following two tracks are much shorter remixes of Whenever You See Fit, and both are, thankfully, not overdone (once again, see above remix examples.) In fact, the three tracks blend together so nicely that I didn't find myself sick of the song by the end of the third track.This EP makes a great CD to complete a Modest Mouse fan's collection, but those unfamiliar with MM may want to start elsewhere. If you are curious about MM and want to keep it [affordable], I would recomment either the Fruit that Ate Itself for their old sound or Everywhere and His Nasty Parlour Tricks for the new sound. If price isn't an issue, than I would highly recommend the absolutely incredible Moon and Antarctica."

"would you like to escape for a lil while?...

from the pacific northwest, here's my favorite modest mouse collaboration with 764-HERO. i'll never forget the first time i heard whenever you see fit. for over 14 minutes, two spacey guitar chords, circling drums and clashing vocals screaming within intensely sad lyric repetitions made me sit completely still. despite its long length, the music never became boring. in fact, it felt so good, i kept on pressing repeat over and over again so i could stay in that daze forever.

talking on the telephone
looking like we're all alike, we're all alone
(whenever you see fit)
and, everything you ever said
and you'll wake up early and you'll live to regret
(nothing is clear)
and you'll wake up early and you'll live to regret
(tell the truth)
and you'll wake up early and you'll live to regret
(whenever you go wrong)
and you'll wake up early and you'll live to regret
(everything's fine)
