Symptom's second album which was recorded in 1998. Of it's 12 songs, 5 were recorded in Hartlepool and 7 in Nottingham. Again, all main foundation tracks of drums and the three guitars (with a guide vocal) were recorded live in the studios. Main vocals, and harmonies, some percussion and keyed strings, and post-production were added later. It took 6 days to complete (4 days recording and 2 days to mix down). The only song that didn't receive any post-production is 'Conscience' which has been added as a bonus track at the end of the album. It was recorded live with the guide vocal complete in it's lyrics so left on. At the end of 1998 the whole album was ready and planned for release in autumn of 1999. Throughout 1998 and early 1999 Symptom gigged the UK promoting their first album. They were voted "Best of the New" by NME at end of 1998 and chosen to headline the start of the NME Carling Premier Tour during 12th-20th January 1999. Unfortunately, soon after the tour Symptom broke-up and the album was shelved and never released. Only two songs from the second album were released as special limited edition singles for fans and promos for radio play: "I Believe in You" in 1999 and "It's Raining (Down on Me)" in 2000. 'Robert Plant...[with]...Simple Minds' - Mark Beaumont (6 Feb 99) NME "Just received an advance copy of "I Believe in You". I can't stop playing it! It's gut-wrenchingly beautiful...his voice is for real! Moodier than the Verve...more passion than Pearl Jam. Who the hell are SYMPTOM? In my book, with this single alone, they can f***ing rule the world" - JJ Brenner (Jan-Feb 99) JAMMARAMMA ZINE "'It's Raining'...Roman Kozlowski possesses the gift...to write killer tunes...anthemic...atmospheric...the sort of voice to kill for" - Andrea Thorn (Apr 2000) MAKING MUSIC.
