MagnetA dark album that shines very brightly. [#46, p.85]
kenfJan 11, 2005One of the most interesting listens i've heard in a long time. The masterpiece has finally arrived in the bands most creatively brilliant album.

Songs like "Cities Made of Ashes" and "Alone Down There" jolted me awake with their ugly abruptness, while spare, strange beauties such as "The Cold Part" made me think of dark European cities and lonely country roads. Basically, like much of their previous work, "The Moon and Antactica" explores the frightening and fascinating elements of travel, death, and the human heart. I think it is ambitious because it doesn't placate it's fans with catchy tunes; the record tries for something more: art.… Expand

timeNov 14, 2006Give me a break! Spin magazine was right the first time. And this was back when Spin was considered groundbreaking. Nobody even payed Give me a break! Spin magazine was right the first time. And this was back when Spin was considered groundbreaking. Nobody even payed attention to this album until "Float On" became a hit. People were pissed off at them for making it big so they just went to this album because it was more "Indie" than "Good News..." Hating a band because they had a hit. How pathetic. Good News is not only their best but it's one of the best albums of the entire decade.… Collapse
