At The Drive-In started as a charmingly scrappy and jangly racket back in the mid-90’s, lest we forget. Acrobatic Tenement is reissued by Transgressive Records here on vinyl for the first time - and a fancy coloured one at that. Hear where it all began for a band who went from obscure emo compilations to Jools Holland.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 2nd February 2015
You think At The Drive-In, you're gonna be pointed towards Vaya or In/Casino/Out. Acrobatic is just as good as, if not better than both of these releases. Don't get me wrong, both Vaya and In/Casino/Out are outstanding, but Acrobatic Tenement is one of those albums that grabs hold and doesn't let go. Songs like Schaffino and Communication Drive-In are a lot more punk-edged than newer stuff, but they still have a sense of depth and a "hummablity" that much of today's music lacks. Cedric's trademark vocal style is intact, retaining the intensity of ATDI's other work. This may not be the perfect introduction to At The Drive-In for new converts, but for fans of the band this is a must have album.
