The Movielife - This Time Next Year [Revelation]
Regarding Movielife, people tend to prefer the EP and LP that came out after this record, probably because by then they'd signed with Drive Thru and were a buzz band in all the music mags. IT's a weird one, they put out a full length before this, it wasn't the best thing ever, the 7" and the split with ExNumberFive play like demos to the Rev record. What I love most about TTNY (other than Jason Mazzolla from Count Me Out guesting on the third track on side B) is that each side has an opener and ender. It's almost as if you could slap it on the deck without looking at which side you put on and it sounds like the record is starting from the beginning. Cave In's Jupiter record works like this with me too.
I don't know the pressing info on this, I got it just after I read a review for it in Fracture zine (remember that?), so it's first press, out of how many is beyond me. Actually I remember there being a sticker on the plastic wrap saying something about a revelations colour club or some bullshit, I ripped it off in true noob style, so that is lost in a landfill somewhere.
