Failure Of The Grand Design is the debut album from London-based band The Resonance Association, and was released via Burning Shed in October 2007. Described as "the best and most intense album released in 2007" by music website Cool Noise[1] (where it was also named as "album of the year"); progressive site DPRP concluded that the band had "a unique sound devoid, for the most part, of any similarity to other bands" in its favourable review.[2]

In 2010, Failure Of The Grand Design was rereleased digitally with 5 bonus tracks.
