Do we know yet how Mouth Moods fits into Mouth Trilogy canon? Has someone made a split timelines chart yet?

Oh my god I can't stop laughing at the Popcorn + Let the Bodies Hit the Floor mashup. Fucking brilliant.

Just finished it. Such a great album. Floor Corn, Annoyed Grunt, Bustin, and Wow Wow really stand out. This is so much more ambitious overall than Mouth Sounds was.

I feel like this would not be a good thing to listen to at work.

The way that Wow Wow includes a brief callback to Vivid Memories Turn To Fantasies from Mouth Sounds is brilliant. Really rounds out the trilogy nicely.

This year already has new The XX, Run The Jewels and Japandroids albums out, and this album is the most excited I've been about new music in a hell of a long time.

I really hope someone manages to make one for mouth moods, because I've heard some hints of maybe hidden stuff in this album too, and I hope that it's still a thing.

Just in case anyone is somehow unaware of it, here is the deepest Mouth lore.

There is a neighboring universe in which only All Star exists.

Music is able to fluidly cross time barriers.

The more powerful the music, the greater its ability to traverse time.

The power of All Star is so great that it destroyed all other music in its universe.

The power of All Star is so great that on May the 4th of 1999, it authors itself into the Non-Star universe.

Mouth Sounds takes place on that date.

Only Rob Thomas and his friend Carlos Santana know the truth.

I hate mashups with a passion, but the Mouth albums are STUPID mashups (and done well, for what it's worth), and my love of dumb things triumphs over my hatred of mashups.

I thought it was technically very good, and I did laugh in parts, but overall I wasn't crazy about it. I was struggling to define what I didn't like about but I don't often engage with music in a critical way so I couldn't find the right language.

Is the Space Jam theme played out? Surprised they didn't include SLAM in the Wannabe section

Silence isn't as gimmicky (what a thing to say) but i think it's more consistent and listenable than Sounds. (With the exception of Love Psych. That's an automatic skip.)

I like Mouth Silence more than Mouth Sounds, and I love Love Psych most of all! But I can agree that all three albums are the best.
