Indie Music fans are always more "authentic" than those of us who listen to the radio and TV.  
I suspect that there are endless BB postings and blogs that say Modest Mouse has sold out with this album.  Now we see them on MTV and VH1 and all.
I always liked them, but this album is definitely the most adult and coherent of them all, in my books.   I'm happy to see them get success.

First of all: Don't knock TOOL      They are way more talented than, pretty much, any rock band that's come out after the 80's.   Maynard is a fantastic vocalist and the drummer is phenominal.  The guitar parts are amazing.  The music is complex and intelligent.

Just don't put them in the same category as "System of a Down" or any other stupid 15 minutes of fame band.

 
Now that that's out of the way-

If you like jazz & jam bands, listen to "Robert Walter's 20th Congress".  They're a great acid jazz jam band & they play a lot of small clubs all around the country.  It's a great time!   Robert Walter is a piano\B3 organ player that used to be in the band with Karl Denson.

Even better...see them in concert!
I saw them in 2001 and I must say it was one of the best shows I've ever witnessed.
Those guys gave it everything they had that night and damn near brought the roof down.

i consider myself an indie music fan but i'm happy as hell when a band makes it. i don't want to see my favorite bands still living with their parents and working at taco-bell when they're in their late 20's. if they make then i'm very happy they achieved their dreams.

but i like bands that are mainstream & non-mainstream . i love the Cure and they've been on mtv for years (not so much in the limelight). but i also love bands like Mineral and Thrice that have a small loyal following. so rest assured not all of us indie music fans are snobs :)

No arguement there.  I''m an indie fan too, y'know.  
But once I was in a store and there was what I thought was an unknown Medest Mouse track on the PA.   I asked if it was, and just got a withering look from the girl on the counter.  When I said they sounded similar I got "Well, maybe to SOME they do."  
Just call me Mr. Tin Ear, I guess.

yeah people like that are annoying. i think High Fidelity did a great job of making fun of those "indier-than-thou" snobs.

I was BLESSED enough to watch them last year when they came through Alabama.  It was an outside show and it was storming.  Their music mixed with the look and feel of the stormy night sky was almost  like being in a drug induced stuper.....ummm.....oh yeah I was....;P   But yes, the best performance I will ever see, the only thing that even comes close was a greenday concert that I went to.

I didn't say Tool is talentLESS, but they aren't nearly the caliber of musicians that they are projected as.  They are far more pretentious than what can be backed up.  Not to offend some of you, but I can't stand most Tool fans.  When you talk to alot of them, they have the attitude that Tool is impeccable, and if you don't agree then you must be musically retarded.  Well I know a lot about music, (not to sound uppity, but probably more than you or anyone you know) so in my nearly expert opinion...Tool isn't that good.
Tool's drummer is VERY good, and that I cannot argue.  Their guitarist isn't anything to write home about, the bassist is pretty creative, but not much of a musician, and Manyrd is a good vocalist who writes pretentious lyrics.  I don't really like their sound, so I'm somewhat biased, but I can say that if they weren't so wrongfully worshiped then I'd probably give them a better criticism.

I would have to agree that they are not the BEST musical band out there, but I do like their sound.  It is completely different that any other band I have heard.  Im my oppinion one of the best  bands I can think of would have to be Jars of Clay...I love the acustic stuff that they do.  And their vocals are unbeatable.

I liked Jars Of Clay on their first CD.  It had a pretty unique vibe and the accoustic sound with classical instruments was pretty creative.

Since then they've gotten to sound like every other Nashville-produced CCM band (which sounds like a lot of Nashville-produced non-CCM stuff)

Their second Cd was alright, but I do not like the third and fourth ones.
