released May 11, 2010
All songs written by Neil Fridd. I also programed them. And sang! But! Jesse came up with most of the lyrics for iotdwykiyhtbr!! so that's important! Also the end of track 4 contains Jason Anderson lyrics!
Joel Raif recorded and mixed it. He did incredible things that I still don't fully understand. He wrestled immense beauty out of the smallest little corners of this album. But not track 4. Kyle Gilbride recorded and mixed track 4!
Scott Hull mastered it (3 times! good job Scott!) at masterdisk.
Yale Evelev is the Executive Producer
Tara Anders is the muse. Every song is about her.
Mat is the new guy.

The inside and poster were collaged from photos shot largely by the above, but also using photos by Christina Halladay, Tim Quackenbush, Jessica Rose Lehrman, Katie Chirichillo, Christine Davitt, Rebecca Smeyne, Caitlin Jackowiak and Aiyana Knauer.
Neil Fridd did the collaging / designing of all the album artwork. Paul Diddy color corrected it.
Thank you everybody.
