    The prices for the reissue (TNT, Millions...) are asinine. Hope another repress is around the corner.

      I've recently went back and listened to Tortoise's discography, and I gotta say... TNT is their best, with Millions coming in second. All their other albums made me think, "They should've cut that song," but not those two.

        A masterpiece and one which ranks very high in my top ten albums of all time. It feels more like a lifelong friend than it does an album. A stunning collection of work that gives you more with each listen.
