Size MP3 album: 1100 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1271 mb.

Acrobatic Tenement is the debut studio album by American post-hardcore band At the Drive-In, released on February 18, 1997, on Flipside. The album, along with In/Casino/Out and Relationship of Command, was reissued by Fearless Records in 2004, and was re-released again in 2013. Only one of the album's tracks made it to the 2005 compilation album, This Station Is Non-Operational, with "Initiation" appearing as a live BBC recording.

Acrobatic Tenement was the 1996 debut of At the Drive-In. Noteworthy tracks include Initiation, a slow-burning emotional discharge, as well as Ebroglio, a tribute to their early musical mentor, Julio Venegas, who had committed suicide years earlier. Venegas would later inspire The Mars Volta’s debut full-length album, Deloused in the Comatorium. Omar Rodríguez-López, the band’s guitarist, was at the time of this album’s release, the band’s bass player. He switched to guitar after this album’s release

At the Drive-in were signed to Flipside Records after playing a small gig in Los Angeles, which only had nine people in the audience. This record label would soon release what I consider would be ATDI s best full-length album. Acrobatic Tenement is an emotional, hard-hitting story of the boys from Texas and their experiences. The top-notch lyrics and music out weigh the low quality recording and make this album brim with greatness. Acrobatic Tenement is a fantastically constructed first album. It stretches from subtle catchy songs to all out yell fests that you can barley decipher. It is in my opinion ATDI s best release because it encompasses their raw energy from their live shows and has Cedric at his lyrical best. Instead of hiding behind big words Cedric uses a more poetic feel in this album and really shows in some of the catchier songs.
