We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank by Modest Mouse

There's a slight shift in Modest Mouse's sound on this album, but that shouldn't be surprising, given the addition of famed Smith's guitarist Johnny Marr. Who know how much the addition shifted the soundscape, but I find this album to be a bit catchier than the previous. Issac Brok's vocal style seems to focus a bit more on the shouty end of the spectrum, on songs like "Dashboard", but personally I like the change. It still sounds like Modest Mouse, just kicked up a notch.
