This is for everyone I've been following this whole time. Thank you so much for sharing this amazing music guys. I've learned so much during this years. Reading and hearing all this knowledge has been amazing for me... you just know that you know nothing, and then you understand Isaac Brock on this song. Big hugs for everyone. <3
Continuing my Modest Mouse Top 25 countdown:
14. The Stars are Projectors
I could easily imagine Syd Barrett singing this song. The subject matter touches on the really big questions. The idea that the stars are projectors is clever in itself, but there's even more to take in when listening to the song. It's a sprawling journey, with mystical guitar and vocals to match. At nearly nine minutes long, it goes through a number of phases, allowing the band to rock out at times. I still think that it works even better when you listen to the whole album, but it's fantastic on its own as well.
