Casino is the 1997 follow-up to the album Physical Therapy, and revolves around a casino theme which influences some instrumentation and the name of each track. As the second studio album of Physical Therapy, it features sixteen more minutes of material than its predecessor. It is seemingly, at present, their last foray into commercial music.[1] In 1998, "Casino" and "A Night at the Palace" were used on the The Weather Channel's local forecast segment.[2]
