This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About
Modest Mouse’s 1996 debut album expands upon the themes of emotional & geographic isolation found in the band’s early recordings & finds the band mixing slow, brooding numbers with thrashing guitar workouts.
The general mood here is one of loneliness & desperation, eloquently expressed through both the lyrics & the rhythmic, sprawling instrumentation. Modest Mouse made their first significant mark here with songs whose meanings are simultaneously universal & painfully personal.
