For many fans, Modest Mouse's sophomore album The Lonesome Crowded West is also their signature masterpiece: a sprawling map of suburban angst and highway sickness, an ambitious indie rock epic encompassing noisy punk outbursts, unlikely dance grooves and heartbreaking balladry. Isaac Brock is alternately yelping and tuneful, his guitar jags just barely tethered to Eric Judy and Jeremiah Green's remarkably supple rhythm section. Songs like "Trailer Trash" and "Polar Opposites" display the scrappy pop instincts that would subsequently propel the band to success with "Float On" and Good News for People Who Love Bad News, while 10-minute jam "Trucker's Atlas" or fractured, multi-part indie rock tunes like "Teeth Like God's Shoeshine" and "Cowboy Dan" catch the band at their most raw and musically adventurous.
