Including all ten songs from their 1995 self-titled debut plus four extra tracks, To Rococo Rot's Cd. is one of the first post-rock albums which isn't obsessed or weighed down by its own potential as conscious, artistic music (perhaps because of the lack of hype surrounding the band in indie rock quarters). The album doesn't say a whole lot, it just grooves along, recalling the pleasant atmospheres of Tortoise, the groove-oriented bent of Ui and Trans Am, and the minimalist effects of Rome. Though trumped by its follow-up, Veiculo, To Rococo Rot's first album has its own characteristic advantages.
