Originally released in 1996, ‘This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About’ is Modest Mouse’s debut LP, and made a significant mark for the band. Expanding upon the themes of emotional and geographic isolation present in their early material, the album sees the band mixing slow, brooding numbers with thrashing guitar assaults, and is worth a revisit.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 30th January 2015
It's hard to know where to start. The first time I heard "This is a long drive..." I didn't know what to think. I was pretty young when this record came out, and it was sort of disorienting. Many years passed before I heard it again. A few friends and I were making our way to the beach to catch the sunset, we were laughing and talking and someone slipped this album into the CD player. "Dramamine", was only a few seconds in and the car went quiet. I remember the driving steady bass line, the distorted guitar and the deliberate rolling drumbeat. It was mesmerising. I kept hearing the song in my head long after the night ended.
