I Sold Gold is the third album by Aqueduct. It was released January 25, 2005 on Barsuk Records. Two tracks, "Growing Up With GNR" and "Heart Design", released with I Sold Gold come from Aqueduct's first album, Power Ballads, which was released in 2003. The album has been described as the fusion of drum beat, synthpop, and piano which has led some to make comparisons with The Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, and Frank Black.
