Modest is not something these mice need be. Thought-provoking musically-progressive albums are what Modest Mouse typically
releases. Lyrically complex, The Moon & Antarctica is quirky and humorous.
This album resonates with warped brilliance, instrumental experimentation and the coveted indie vibe that few major label releases can perpetuate. With auditory gems like "I Came as a Rat" and "The Stars are Projectors" this album will probably be one of my favourites long into 2001.
