My copy and my buddies copy were unplayable.. huge amounts of digital sounding distortion/buzzing throughout.

To me, this is THE EITS album to get, the album that pretty much perfected their sound. It was one of the first bands of this type (post-rock, if you will) that was obviously very much influenced by Godspeed You Black Emperor. Compared to GYBE, EITS has somewhat more "american" sound to them, and maybe in a sense more defined and positive vibe. I view GYBE as the veterans (and possibly even the inventors of the style), but when it comes to choosing between "Skinny Fists" and this album, I'd go with this.

This is a timeless, inspired, and psychedelic piece of music. I think that their later creations (as good as they are) didn't catch the depth and the feeling of this. As I said, timeless. 5/5.
