2013 reissue; originally released in 2003. First vinyl release; mastered for vinyl by Matt Colton. Features new artwork. Matt Elliott's first release under his own name, following his work as The Third Eye Foundation. "Arrangements are complex and orchestration never blends entirely for the sake of being easy to listen to; Elliott maintains a range of cacophonous identities that simply tolerate each other. The opening track, 'Let Us Break,' is in this regard as haunting as it is entirely captivating. Warped, exaggerated vocals share track space but never yield scope or priority to strings, piano, accordion -- elements stand out by virtue of their original form and within the same dimension create layers of distinct separation" --Prefix. "Elliot has pulled off a tricky feat here: stripping down his sound to more orthodox 'rock' instrumentation, without losing his edge." --Stylus
