In my opinion, this is the strongest of all Twilight Singers albums. I love the first record, but I think this was the one on which it all came together. This is also where Mark Lanegan began to show up on Twilight Singers releases, with a solid appearance on the album's last track, "Number Nine". There were several CD versions that came out. The Japanese one has a bonus track, "Wicked", which came out on the Devil in the Woods 7" and then Amber Headlights.

The vinyl came out much later. It contained a bonus track, the demo of "Run Rabbit Run", a song that had made occasional appearances during the last tour of The Afghan Whigs' original run. All copies were on white vinyl. Fans were not immediately sold on the vinyl version, and its value did not rise at all for a few years. It began to get slightly more scarce and appreciated slightly over a few-year period. Then, out of nowhere, it took off and is now one of the most expensive Dulli-related pieces of vinyl one can buy. It's been sold increasingly often in the last couple of years, but the price hasn't really come down. In fact, it's still going up.
