Proto-stoner rock and very heavy imo. 'Smoking the Day Away' is one of my all-time favorite songs! Can never get sick of this although their second album might be better. I own the vinyl on the original Paramount label. Highly recommended!!!!

Finally sourced a NM- original at a fair price. Took awhile for this one...

And by "fair price" i mean <$80. I don't want to pay more than that.
Well, for an original LP i've waited a very long time for i could go as high as a Benji if it's perfect. Haven't had to yet. Another clean LP comes around eventually. Until then a good quality remastered CD is fine. In most cases the reissued/remastered CD is as good or slightly better than the original LP. Perceived status/pride of ownership can often make your brain veer into hyperbole. I should start A/Bing these titles more often again. Getting out of the habit.

It's good to see the retarded LP vs. CD debate pretty much exhausted. If you understand fidelity you know it's the quality of your stereo gear that does all the heavy lifting.

I only paid $25 for mine back in 2009 on ebay. Mine is in good condition,but it has gotten quite alot of plays since then. I'm actually gonna spin it on my next radio set again.


I love the second song's guitar solo,it really tears the roof off the FM airwaves.

Paid ~$60 for mine. It looks and plays NM-. Money well spent when you think $60 is minimum what you'll spend on one night out. I get to keep the LP forever. :)

So what's your favorite song off it? I think I'm gonna go with the first track,but like I said the solo on the second song rules. I love the gatefold in the vinyl too lol.

Should get their second album as well!
