Additional infoRare original 2001 US American label 14-track LP - the 2nd album by complex and trashy, vital and progressive Glendale, California, based alt-metallists - featuring the singles 'Chop Suey!', 'Toxicity' and 'Aerials'

Keith Harris of Rolling Stone labelled 'Toxicity' "both manic and schizoid", Tom Sinclair of Entertainment Weekly called the album "strange and engaging", with a wide variety of sounds which "all adds up to bizarro type of metal that has a warped majesty and strength".

Vinyl has black and silver company labels with top curved stars and 'american' text as well as top label 'flag' logo - and handwritten and drawn - labels have mid arrows pointing towards label rim.

Vinyl is housed in an illustrated lyric inner sleeve - ultimately in a picture cover.

Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+(+) (Inner Sleeve)/VG+ (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has been used directly from the paper inner sleeve and has subsequently a very light degree of sleeve inflicted scuffs or lines - perfect labels. Vinyl is overall graded close to mint.

Inner sleeve has inevitable vinyl outline and a bend corner - otherwise extremely nice - graded close to near mint/excellent.

Cover is nice - hardly any signs of handling or storage except for an upper spine corner dent and a very slight spine pressure point - way outside the text area.
Cover has a touch of lower seam and opening rubbing - graded at least upper VG+ - a simply very nice copy - hard to find in any condition - very difficult to dig up this nice.
