Digitally remastered and expanded edition including bonus tracks. Semisonic's 1998 hit album, Feeling Strangely Fine, is celebrating it's 20th Anniversary this year! Featuring the #1 Billboard Modern Rock Track "Closing Time" and globally charting "Secret Smile", this unique collector's edition contains rare b-sides from the album recording sessions. Feeling Strangely Fine is the second studio album by Semisonic. It is the follow up to the band's debut album Great Divide recorded at Seedy Underbelly Studio, Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band had over 60 new songs in mind as they went into the recording process and had three specific requirements when they decided they wanted to record a new album. First, they didn't want to record any demo tapes beyond simple guitar and vocal basement sketches, meaning the album versions would be the first band recordings of the songs. Second, they wanted no deadline for the finished masters. Third, the trio wanted to create tracks for the album in various hi- and lo-tech settings around Minneapolis, and use their computers to meld the different sounds together. Nick Launay was brought in to produce the album and the band recorded twenty songs over the course of four months. They pared those down to sixteen, mixed them, and used the best twelve for the finished record.
