Kinda sad that it's missing almost half the tracks, but it's still a great album, that guy doesn't know bad sound.
"Life Spice" and "I Enjoy Watching You" should atleast have been on this.

I usually love everything from Theo Parrish and I have really tried to love this... But it's bad, like really really bad.

Now year has nearly past and I think this has grown to be on my TOP albums of 2015

Jesus, probably the thinnest slab of wax I've ever held; how much does this cost again?!

Juno have been selling the vinyl for $25.00 for a while now. Amazing deal.

Love this album for the most part, but there are problems with both the cd and vinyl release. If you have to choose one, go with the cd. Some of the best tracks are missing from the vinyl and others ("Drive" and "Footwork") appear in weird, truncated edits. I'm glad to have both, but the vinyl was kind of a missed opportunity.

It's not the Theo Parrish album I wanted. Given that, I originally made the unconscious inference that this made it a weak album. After having revisited it, however, I'm starting to dig it more and more. Once I got over MY unfulfilled hopes for what I wanted it to be, I was able to appreciate IT for what it is from a slightly more objective vantage point--and it's pretty damn good. I recommend the haters give it another shot (or two or three)--it worked for me--and I think that process was really just me getting over myself more than anything to do with the music as such.

detthreads on Ebay have a signed, white label test pressing with a personal message from Theo for $99.99 in their buy it now selections. Seems like a deal relative to the regular issue?

To the people complaining about the price, i just wanted to say that i've seen Theo live last summer (worldwide festival), he does his show with maybe 8-10 artists, dancers, musicians… If Theo was after money, he could earn almost the same amount, alone for a DJ set. At that festival, I was wondering, does the guy make good money??? I mean being in the underground scene he isn't paid as much as these crap super star DJ's. There was 4 dancers on the scene!! I usually don't really care about dancers when i go listen to a live show, but i ended up by enjoying it, it was really old school, and i felt like it was a big family on the scene.
He is giving work to all his crew, if you buy the record, you support not only him but many artists.
Regarding this album, i didn't like it that much, i'm not buying it, it's not a matter of price, i won't buy it for 20€ neither.
