The band's sound changed a little for this album. It was more of a commercial success, but has less kick than the previous ones. I know many who think this was their finest effort. I prefer the noisier stuff (except "Scenic Pastures", which is a gorgeous song). The original vinyl pressings came in two forms: one was black vinyl. The other was an interesting picture disc version - it is a very heavy piece of vinyl with a picture of an airplane wheel on it. The picture disc price can fluctuate a bit, but is pretty easy to find.
Merge Records reissued All the Nation's Airports in 2012 on clear vinyl (as did Fire Records in Europe), with a download containing all sorts of bonus tracks (singles, demos, etc.).
