Birth of a Cynic is the first independent release of post-grunge rock band 8stops7. It was produced by Paul Lani & Paul Yered and released on Elephant Ear Records. The booklet from original release was printed as a blue and black duotone on white paper, while the reissue was printed in full color and had slightly different artwork.

Four of its tracks were re-recorded for the band's major label release In Moderation on Warner Bros. Records/Reprise Records. In 2007, three songs were featured in the short film He's Not My...,[1] which was produced by Contempovision Films.
