Snowball is the debut album by England twee pop group The Field Mice. It was originally released as a 10" vinyl LP on September 4, 1989 through Sarah Records. Let's Kiss and Make Up" – 6:13. You're Kidding Aren't You" – 2:30. End of the Affair" – 4:14. Couldn't Feel Safer" – 3:47. This Love Is Not Wrong" – 3:21. Everything About You" – 2:30. The following tracks appear on the 2005 reissue of the album from LTM recordings.

But if the Field Mice were just adorable indiepop amateurs, then why do they sound so slick and stylish? Yeah, they have their sunny strum-a-longs and wistful laid-back jangle- songs so "pop" that it feels like someone must always have sounded like this. The first of these reissues, Snowball, wraps up the band's sweet-and-simple early work- open chords and a muted drum machine, stripping down bookish English indie to a purity that can leave the Sundays looking like a prog-metal outfit. The best of these tracks have a charm that makes boyish idealism sound like one of the better phases of life, and they cast a long shadow on everything that came after them.
