DJ Shadow's classic debut album. There are many slight design variations from country to country, but as usual, the superior and originally intended presentation is found on the Mo' Wax UK versions. For example, the first 10,000 UK CDs were housed in an oversized format complete with gatefold insert; all subsequent UK CDs came in a normal-sized package. Similarly, the UK vinyl presentation was far superior to the US run.
Mo' Wax manufactured cassettes for this release. "Snippet" cassettes also exist, released promo-only in the US and titled "Introducing...Endtroducing."

This was the album that changed it all for me as a listener. This was also the album that changed it all for me as a musician. I don't think I speak alone when saying this album changed my life...

Heiii! I was wondering about the lyrics of Midnight in a Perfect World.. Does she sing: "I don't love you, heading to garden of love, life is seek of love." Because the Internet is claiming she says "life come seeking of love" which sounds completely irrational. I'm planning to have a tattoo with these lyrics in it, so the answer would be very important to me. I love this album and it has been a big part of my life since the day it was published.
