This is the title of the third studio album by Philadelphia-based band The Disco Biscuits, released in April 2001. It is radically different from their two previous efforts, Encephalous Crime and Uncivilized Area, and far more coherent than both. Though not a concept album, the tracks often flow into each other gently, and themes from all over the album are "sampled" and reprised over each other in the last track (the only one never performed live), much like the final movement of a symphony.

This record also comes closest of the three to representing their current live sound. Gone are the funk, jazz, blues, and rock influences of the past. The single genre most represented seems to be a relaxed Carribean style, but everything feels much more like techno, though the band prefers to call it trance-fusion. In any event, there are far more synthesizer parts here than can be played by one person. The entire record was produced on a G4, with all beats programmed (not recorded live) by drummer Sam Altman.
