Picked this up brand new today at my local shop. D side is etched per the description, but there have been subsequent repressings (2008, 2011) - listings don't say anything about the etching on those releases. Any other idea how to determine which pressing I have?

There is something terrifyingly unsettling at work in this album. Not unlike the startling dread that spread through-out their Songs for a Dead Pilot EP, this album explores those themes with more confusion to go with the hope and more triumph to go with the destruction. Once you hear the echoed rumble created by the alignment of striking instruments in Medicine Magazines, you become aware of the immense emotional chamber that this band is resonating within.

This is perhaps Steve Albini's most beautifully disturbing production piece- everything is left out in the cold to die alone. Alan Sparhawk is definitely trying to come to terms with something on this album. My guess is that he has thought too far, feels too much for the comfortable confines of the mormon faith to protect him. His mind continues to look into the brutal, desolate landscape past the comfortable fence of his religious devotion. I feel for him, if the body of his work is any indication of what he is trying to confront. At any rate, if one must go to these depths, there should be comfort in knowing that you haven't been the only one to trudge through here. Because that may the only source of redemptive warmth amidst the frigid expanse of loneliness and uncertainty.

If nothing else, at least it resulted in this album.

holy hell, i can't believe how good this record is. "like a forest" and "in metal" are about as good as songwriting gets, and i mean that for any form of music. songs from this album could be handed to an intenationally acclaimed orchestra or a rudimentary elementary school punk band and as long as the notes fell in the right place, your eyes would fill with tears. if i have a complaint, it's with "dinosaur act", which provides an awesome riff, but i don't care for the way the song's title is sung in the chorus. call me crazy.
