Velocity Girl's first full-length album - very solid release. I would like it a lot more if the vocals were more audible, but it's still excellent. It exists on several different colors of vinyl, all of which are somewhat tough to find now. I have seen it on clear blue, blue-gray marble, purple marble vinyl, and pink marble vinyl. The blue one is the easiest to find. The blue-gray and purple marble versions are a little harder, and more or less equally rare. The pink one is brutally difficult to find. One showed up in an auction (which I lost), and it took me another few years to find another. I've never seen a third.

The European release was of 1,000 copies on red vinyl, with some more on black.
