"Glasgow's Stapleton. They're among the best acts in the UK, regardless of genre, and the original, eight-track version of this release (now fleshed-out with the excellent, and very deleted 'Icy You' single) remains a firm favourite of mine to this day. If you're a newcomer to this three-piece, but have a warm, inviting spot in your heart for any band that morphs from Superchunk to Braid through Built To Spill and Pavement, whilst sounding every bit and yet nothing like them, let Stapleton establish a permanent residency. I may have heard standouts 'Esplanade' and 'Our Returning Champion' a hundred times, but this release just serves as a reminder that they are, in fact, timeless. A truly indespensible records, unless you've already got it of course." - Rock Sound Aug 2004

This is the long over-due repress of the second album from Glasgow indie-rockers Stapleton. Originally released in October 2001 on the now defunct Subjugation label, the initial pressing sold out within three months and has been unavailable since. Now re-released by Gravity DIP Records with bonus tracks (all three tracks from previous single 'Icy You' are have been added) and improved art-work / packaging, its now ready for new and old fans alike to re-discover this lost treasure.

Playing lo-fi angular indie-rock whilst never forgetting the melodic hooks and with sheer poetry lyrically, their unique and quite special music appeals as much to fans of Snowpatrol and Idlewild as it does to lovers of Modest Mouse and Braid.
