Issued in a 6-panel Digipak.

Due to legal issues, the release is an edited version of the original, approximately 1 minute shorter. Several samples removed, including, but not limited to: Wayne and Shuster's "I Was a TV Addict" ("Radio" intro); the spoken sample from the film "Midnight Run" (in "Diners Only"), and a guitar/strings sample (in the middle of "Little Journey").

Another pressing exists, made by Technicolor instead of Sonopress.

This sounds a bit like a lighter version of "Endtroducing"... The sample collage is incredible (I've noticed several horse noises though, apparently they like it ^^).

Seriously, this is the kind of music that MUST be played on a sunny day, like on the beach or in your car. The whole CD is such a thing of beauty and rhythm. Its Australian nationality makes it more exotic. I'll stop here, 'cause everything has already been said.

One of the best productions from the first year of the 21st century, and also one of my favorite Australian acts along with EK and Sonic Animation.

Beware of this release as the copyright people cut out almost a full minute from the original release's mix that contained samples they didn't like, due to legal issues. The removals included: Wayne and Shuster's "I Was a TV Addict" ("Radio" spoken intro); a sample from the film "Midnight Run" starring Robert De Niro (spoken conversation in "Diners Only"), and a guitar/strings sample (in the middle of "Little Journey"); furthermore, there was a drastic alteration to "Summer Crane" which added weird whistling/wind samples. I don't know about you, but I'd rather return this to the store and continue listening to the original before the band releases their promised deluxe edition (which, hopefully, (although unlikely) restores the deleted samples).
