Limited 180 gram audiophile vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve including insert. Prior to the release of Neptune City (2007), Nicole Atkins found herself at a bar in Neptune City, New Jersey called Bilow's, thinking about what she would title her next album. She pondered aloud naming the album Neptune City, almost as a counterbalance to Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J., with encouragement from the bar's patrons. 'And I figured Neptune City, too, it seems so ominous' she told the Village Voice. 'It sounds like very, you know, aquatic and mysterious'. Neptune City was generally well received by most music critics. Atkins shows on this album that she has both the capability and potential. The lush arrangements on Neptune City showcase the depth, range, and versatility of Atkins' alto voice, not to mention her songwriting prowess. Something akin to country, but also something post-modern, this is heartbreak nearly at it's finest, and most cosmopolitan. The album reached #6 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart.
