MINI BLOG: The Fruit That Ate Itself

Modest Mouse – The Fruit The Ate Itself (1997)
What a turd. I can’t believe 1) that any band would release this as a serious album and 2) that anyone would be a fan of this recording. About half of the “songs” are less than a minute-long ditties with barely any musical merit. The rest are mostly the exact same stuff you heard on the previous two Modest Mouse albums. I’m sick of Isaac Brock’s guitar antics of this period. Yes, they’re unique and strange, but he does the exact same thing in every song. Ugh. [2.4/5.0] Ok

    I’m not gonna lie–these reviews are very painful. Let’s get back to the good stuff.
