Considered by many to be the definitive Braid album, Frame and Canvas was recorded by J. Robbins (Jawbox/Burning Airlines) at Inner Ear studios in December 1997. Braid's leaner, more focused sound on the album was in direct correlation to the band's constant and prolific touring.

Braid's third album features the bombastic crowd pleaser "The New Nathan Detroits," the lovesick math rock dance anthem "A Dozen Roses" and the shimmery mini-epic of "I Keep a Diary."

Forget what you’ve been told about picture discs having lower audio quality — all Polyvinyl Picture Disc Editions are pressed using a unique process known as Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM), which provides more accurate reproduction of high frequencies and less background noise.
