Velocity Girl's final effort was definitely its most polished work. There isn't much on this album that really grabs me, with a notable couple of exceptions. The glitter vinyl version was produced in the UK (like the color vinyl Nothing single). It is a really interesting effect. The vinyl is clear...but it has a bunch of red glitter in it. I am still trying to figure out how this was possible without ruining the recording. U.S. black vinyl still available from Sub Pop.
