Jawbox was the fourth and final album by Jawbox. The album was released by TAG, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records. In the months following the album's release, the band was dropped from TAG and thus from Atlantic.
The album is much more commercial than its predecessor, For Your Own Special Sweetheart. The songs "Empire of One", "Mule/Stall", "Nickel Nickel Millionaire", and "Capillary Life" transition into each other.
