Re-issue of the explosive 1996 debut by Neutral Milk Hotel. Deluxe repackaging in new mini gatefold sleeve with twenty four page poster booklet.

Full of rapid- re wordplay with true and heartfelt experimentation, both ambitious and eclectic, it's not hard to see why this has been such an influential album.

Part of the fabled Elephant 6 collective, Neutral Milk Hotel won over many a music critic with this cult classic.

The band are recognized as one of the most in uential alternative acts to come out of the mid-90s and sowed the seeds for everything from anti-folk to the likes of Arcade Fire, Caribou and even Franz Ferdinand.

On its original release, this album ranked #35 in the annual Village Voice Jazz & Pop Critics' Poll.

Also, Spin proclaimed this album one of the ten best "you didn't hear" of 1996. Deluxe repackaging in new mini gatefold sleeve with TWENTY FOUR page poster booklet, this reissue includes the 'Everything Is' single and b-side 'Snow Song Pt.1' from the original 1994 7" release.
