Originally released in 2000 on the Lovitt label, 'Fridgid Form Sells' Milemarker'S third album and the one that finally realized the full-scope of the band's potential, establishing them as a true innovative force. Milemarker cleverly avoids the common pitfalls of their musical contemporaries by combining poignant lyrics and a refined technique that features not only the expected guitar/bass/drum kit, but also carefully crafted keyboard and electronic sections accented by haunting, yet lilting, male and female vocals. Jade Tree Records.

"You really just have to appreciate the passion with which people hate this band. You tend to see that, I guess, whenever some modicum of conviction is being displayed, on any front, and I guess that is to say you just don't see enough people freaking out about the state of the music being made today. Because if you did see actual content in songs, maybe a whole lot more people would be upset. But who could say, really?
This record is pretty rad, on any front, whether it's the cover art, displaying the band in mock-portraits of a Gap ad (which people will no doubt marvel at and wonder, isn't that dude on that gap commercial) or songs about bugs and sex. But it's worth checking out, even if you're only going to get mad and write a negative review about."

"Milemarker have created and successfully produced a sound that is both unique and talent driven with Frigid Forms Sell. The lyrics, contrary to the other reviewer are in fact amazing in their own right. Theres a interesting combination of both emotion, and surprisingly, humor. Since when are all lyrics intended to be believable? Its obsurd to even think about relating that to this album. To say that this band is "new to the music biz" says nothing. One: They are not. The fact that they have two previous full length releases, which are accomplishments in themselves, plus a plethora of 7" and splits proves this comment bunk. Two: Since when did being established in the "music biz" make for good music. Just listen to most "punk music" released by many veteran artists. Most, if not all of it, is horribly written and shows no talent whatsoever. As far as Milemarker is concerned, i was very concerned about the future releases for the band. That was incredibly stupid of me. Every release is worthy not only of purchase, but of the several hours you SHOULD be spending listening to it."
