Modest Mouse heeft een eigen unieke en herkenbare sound, Isaack Brock levert de vocals, Eric Judy verzorgt rollende, vloeiende baslijnen en Jeremiah Green voorziet in stevig drumwerk. Met zijn tweede plaat hield Jeremiah het voor bekeken, en werd Dan Gallucci (gitaar) ingelijfd. Dit zorgt ervoor dat ook de typische Modest Mouse-sound herbekeken, ja zelfs geherdefinieerd werd. De sterkte zit hem vooral in het begin van de plaat (de eerste vijf/zes tracks). Daarna wordt het allemaal wat wisselvalliger, al blijven er nog steeds bijzondere nummers te signaleren (Bukowski, The Devil’s Workday). (2)

Good News for People Who Love Bad News is the fourth full-length album recorded by alternative rock band Modest Mouse. The album was released by Epic Records on April 6, 2004 on both CD and 180g/m² vinyl record. It was rereleased on DualDisc on October 11, 2005.

The vinyl and DualDisc editions of the album also contain the B-side "I've Got It All (Most)". On the vinyl edition, the track is placed at the end of the album. On the DualDisc edition, it is placed between "Bury Me With It" and "Dance Hall". The song "Bukowski" is dedicated to the late poet Charles Bukowski. The song "The Good Times Are Killing Me" was originally going to be released as the normal mix, but instead they added the one mixed by The Flaming Lips.
