The Lonesome Crowded West is the second full-length album recorded by Indie rock band Modest Mouse. The album was released on Up Records on November 18, 1997, on both compact disc and vinyl LP.
Many consider the album to be one of the best indie rock albums of the 1990s: Pitchfork Media ranked it #29 in their list 100 Greatest Albums of the 1990s, and the song "Trailer Trash" #63 in their list of the 200 Greatest Songs of the decade. Spin ranked it #59 in their list the 100 Greatest Albums, 1985Ã¢â‚¬â€œ2005, and Entertainment Weekly included the album in their list The Indie Rock 25. The A.V. Club has described the album as the band's breakthrough recording. In June 2012, Pitchfork.tv released a forty-five minute documentary on the album. The documentary included archival footage taken during live performances and original recording/mix sessions.
The album was reissued on CD and vinyl by Isaac Brock's Glacial Pace record label in 2014 along with This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About.
The two towers pictured on the album's cover are The Westin Seattle.
