More Human Heart was the first official Acumen "Nation" album after a legal dispute forced the band to alter its original Acumen name. The band was generously picked up by NYC's Conscience Records after the demise of Fifth Colvmn Records, the original label for the band. Conscience was hot on the heels of their deal with Dreamworks for Powerman 5000, who's debut album they released. The label had secured distribution with Never Records (home to Lords of Acid) and grand plans were on the horizon. The band had found a loving home of supportive, creative and generous label owners and reached an exciting pinnacle of success... only to see things fall apart yet again after the distributor failed to make good on its promises of focus and expansion.

Conscience Records would fold in 2 years time, and its bands Acumen Nation and El Dopa would be rudderless in due time. However, the band was afforded an amazing amount of creative control, tour support and a pair of fantastic remix EPs for their 2 album singles.

Lifelong relationships were made and the band enjoyed a beautiful experience in the waning of days of the REAL New York City, a magical time on the east coast that would find its cultural end as the 2000's gave way to massive closures and gentrification, trust fund appetites and worse. But for a couple years there... damn. Legend.

This release comes complete with several bonus tracks and band pics.
