More Info:

New pressing with lacquers cut at Lucky Lacquers. Housed in a reverse board gatefold jacket and includes an 18 x 24 poster. This was the band's second studio album (originally released on Island Records) and most successful release, peaking at number 135 on the Billboard 200. Manic Compression would be Quicksand's last studio album before their first split in October 1995. Quicksand's heavy metal is distinguished not by the band's hooks but by its precision -- they grind their riffs into the ground, never alleviating their intensity. Manic Compression isn't as murky as Quicksand's major-label debut and it contains tighter, better-constructed songs, all of which makes the band's deliberate lack of melody excusable. Then again, the point isn't melody -- Quicksand is about sheer sound, in all of its distorted glory. If you like that sound, the album delivers the goods.
