 +"A great album - one of my absolute faves. Very much in the vein of //Slanted// and //​Enchanted//​ era Pavement (including a Pavement cover of Perfume-V as a hidden track at the end). No one knows these guys and this album somehow managed to be roundly ignored, a fact that still mystifies me. The type of album a famous rockstar will fish out of a discount bin (download from a discount music website?) two decades from now and proclaim as genius (a la Nick Drake). Spare yourself the wait - buy it now." - P. Hall ([[http://​www.amazon.com/​Further-Sal-Paradise/​dp/​B000003ZFQ]])

 +"16 tracks of acoustic-based,​ melancholy dreams from Australia'​s Sal Paradise. Insightful lyrics with subtle songs and textures. Liner notes contain an explanation of each track. Songs reaching back into the band's prehistory with tracks from //​Disclosure//​ and //Speed of Life//, as well as //​Further//​. The album was recorded solo by singer-songwriter JJ Miller and released by [[Velvet Blue Music]]. This reissue has the complete and originally intended artwork, including lyrics and liner notes to each song."
