Modest Mouse – Best Animated Album Covers
‘We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank’
Modest Mouse may have titled their 2007 album ‘We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank,’ but by placing a balloon in the artwork, it’s possible that not everyone perished in the boating incident described in the title — even if it is carrying an anchor.
In the animated version of this album cover, we find a more positive fate, as the balloon is apparently not weighted down by the anchor. Instead, it is able to cross the dark blue sky.
