Modest Mouse’s third LP, ‘The Lonesome Crowded West’, was originally released in 1997, and ultimately helped to mould the American indie rock sound that became synonymous with the Pacific Northwest. Its endemic, influential sound has been copied from both sides of the Atlantic, but its honest existentialism makes it a modern day classic perfect for a revisit.

10/10 Jack 30th January 2015

It's just... perfect. Try naming another 70+ indie rock album that doesn't have a scratch of filler or throwaway song. The band belts out tune after tune with a sense of consistent quality that not Pavement, Sonic Youth, or even The Pixies could match in their heyday. The sound quality is raw compared to the more recent releases, but it's still amazing how HUGE and expansive Modest Mouse sound, even when pared down to the base elements of guitars, bass, drums, and vocal (with an occasional touch of violin). It's Neil Young-meets-Pixies-meets-Tom Waits-meets-Pink Floyd (yes, really!).
