Continuing my Modest Mouse Top 25 countdown: 8. Heart Cooks Brain It's slow and repetitive, but strangely hypnotic. Heart Cooks Brain could be the soundtrack to a documentary about exploring another planet. It sounds inquisitive and seems to be searching for something. I'm glad that the bitter buffalo hasn't jumped off the cliff yet. Like Tiny Cities Made of Ashes, there's a lot going on in the layers beneath the lyrics. The scratchy guitar adds texture and weight to the song. Incidentally, it's perfectly positioned on the album, offering a reflective pause between the rants of Teeth Like God's Shoeshine and Convenient Parking.   2

Very strange lyrics, but they speak to me in ways I understand. Great, simple indie atmosphere.

The balance of the heart and brain's abilities to destroy (complement?) each other.
