One of the greatest ever! I got this one on 8-track cartridge,still sealed(worth over $100). Hunting down a vinyl copy also. I've only known one person who dislikes this album,but suffice to say that person is a douche.

I think my fave track off this is Raging River of Fear. Those double tracked guitar leads give me goosebumps.

Amazing album and one which is surprisingly obscure apparently (I played it for a friend of mine very much in to this sort of thing and he'd never heard of it). I hear little fragments of the tunes in a lot of over things, not even counting Twin Earth by Monster Magnet pretty much being a cover of Mesmerization Eclipse.

I'm sure I've heard a riff of theirs in something I was listening to this morning, I'll see if I can remember what it was.

Also, first post! And what a band to do it for.

One of the greatest Holy Grails ever. Opened so many doors to me when I first listened to it in late '99. One of the best things to play on the air on FM radio too. There's only one way to crush all the other stations,throw this one on one of the turntables.
