"Manic Compression" is the second and most recent studio album by American Post-Hardcore band Quicksand, released on February 28, 1995 on the major label "Island Records". It is often viewed as the bands best work and is the band's most successful release, peaking at number 135 on the Billboard 200.
Manic Compression would be Quicksand's last studio album before their first split in October 1995. They did work on a follow-up album during their 1997-1999 reunion, but it never materialized. A vinyl version of the album was re-released in early 2013 by Shop Radio Cast which incorrectly lists "Landmine Spring" as the first song on the B-side on the cover, when the song is actually that last song pressed on the A-side. I specially like very much this second QUICKSAND album which sadly was made and distribute by a major "Island Records" (what a pitty), but strictly musical is exceptional and I remember in 1995 how this sounded: modern, new and original. I think is still a very good album.
