It seemed that Sub Pop rushed Four to market when it came out. There was very little hype around the album prior to its release. They tried to push it a little more afterward. The album was released in conjunction with the band's appearance at the Sub Pop Lamefest in Japan in 1993. All of the bands that participated had albums that Sub Pop put out right when the Japan Lamefest shows were starting. Four was probably Seaweed's most complete album. Really good stuff, start to finish. Released on vinyl in both the U.S. and Germany, and on CD in several more companies. Both LP versions were on black vinyl. The value of both has crept upward over time.
