Not to say there is anything wrong with the album, it just does not have the originality to stand out from the crowd. Their sound is fairly similar to that of other newcomers such as Atheneum or Eve 6. They are all good bands, but that is it - good, not great. I know every one of you has already heard rock bands with guitar, bass, and drums. Classic stuff here, with an off-key voice.

Alright, I need some information about a version of this release on CD that came in a screen printed cardboard slipcase with the house in blue rather than yellowish orange. It was released by The Arena Rock Recording Company with the catalog number being AR-006. I would like to create an entry but would like to know more info before doing so. Does anybody know the rarity etc.? Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!

From Harvey Danger's archived old site:"Notes: Original pressing of 1,200 copies, in cardboard sleeve with hand-screened orange cover and 4-page black-and-white insert. CD pocket is on the left side. Second pressing has multiple-colored houses (Brian Ralph, the printer, go bored of just orange); CD pocket is on the right side."(Go here, http://www.harveydanger.com/oldsite/index.old.html and look under Recordings -> Discography)
