Modified is the second full-length album by Save Ferris. It was released on October 19, 1999.

Critical reception[edit]

The album received a negative reception from critics. Barry Walters of Rolling Stone wrote that "even when the band is rocking full throttle, Powell sings as if she's belting out the latest Disney ballad".[1] For Allmusic, William Ruhlmann said that "Save Ferris may yet find its own place, but that is more likely to come through touring than through its records".[2]
