My copy is noisy right out of the shrink wrap, even after a dry and a wet cleaning before playing for the first time.

I wrote the owner of TRL many years ago to find out if there was a difference between the first pressing and the later pressings. He told me that the first pressing had color on the record disc labels and the rest were just black and white.

This is pleasant and happy post rock. It borders easy listening imho.

Disclaimer: Whilst game changing albums such as Sergeant Peppers, Dark Side Of The Moon, or Nevermind arguably deserve 5 stars, not everything can be in that league, and therefore only a very small percentage of the albums in my collection get that rating (<5%). A 3 star hotel can be a fine hotel too!

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

sad.

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.
