Third full length recording & first since leaving the Neurot label. Seven of these nine tracks were released in small highly sought after pressings of 12" vinyl on two European labels. A massive evoltionary step in the established Grails sound. It is shrouded in change & pain. The somewhat clinical studio sound & recording style which has established them a tremendous following has been replaced with a much more free & conceptual recording style. This method liberated the group in the studio & these recordings feel much more open, heavy and for lack of a better term "psychadelic." We're not talking about the clich co-opted psychedelic fashion, but psychedelia as a reckless embrace of new states of mind & possibilities.
