Released by Matador Records (OLE 210) in October 1997.
The absolutely brutal 2nd release on Matador. This is Bardo at their fiercest and at their most refined. Stunning record, and it gets even better live.
Similar to the treatment they gave Amanita, Drunken Fish Records hits the nail on the head when they describe Lapsed as:
