I must have listened to this CDR like 100 times around when it first came out. I was super bummed when I heard that there would only be Wavves and no more Fantastic Magic.

This album is a gem. If the Robert Beatty masterwork of jacket design doesn't do it for you, the collection of gently warped, nicotine-stained pop tunes might. Michael Collins is a genius and he's got a lot of talented pals, it seems.

One of the most enigmatic and thoroughly captivating albums I have ever listened to. The way it is recorded makes this album feel cloyingly intimate. The orchestration is so basic and yet totally natural feeling. An all-time classic record for me. So ... See full review

CF is a pretty small operation. their shipping rates are high, yes, but then again we are talking about vinyl records and you could always A) buy it at your local shop or B) not buy it at all. I agree that those costs could come down, but then again I ... See full review

I bought a copy of this direct from Matador--did not know it was also going to be available via the locals. My copy sounds great and spins very evenly. Nice pressing!

Got a copy direct from Matador. Good quality pressing! Classic LP and my favorite GBV.

I love the film and the music on this record, however I wish it also included the first track that was on the CD, "When I Call A Name" ... I always thought that was a lovely opening to the album and I miss it. But otherwise a nice quality pressing and ... See full review

I just listened to this new clear vinyl reissue and the sound is pretty bad. Just sounds muddled, mix-wise. Nothing stands out...nothing sounds great. Particularly the vocals sound like they are too quiet in relation to the rest of the orchestration. I ... See full review

^^Same. I wrote for FD for a year or so back around 2010 (loved it). Used to buy the DigiLtd cassettes obsessively (and many of the CD/LP releases as well). Brad and Eden are the people who turned me on to so many amazing musicians--Natural Snow ... See full review

One of this group's best recordings. I listen to it regularly still after almost 10 years of its existence (I am listening to it right now, in fact, as I post this comment). The tape in general is a magical release, since it captures those early months ... See full review

This record is fucking dope. Regarding the pressing: I have the "candy/poison" pressing and it seems totally OK right out the sleeve.

One of those albums that does something totally original. It is very metal and very pop, but also just mixed in such a wonderfully bizarre way so that you can't really categorize it at all. Like many Boris records, it a bit of an evolution of the records ... See full review
