Seven More Minutes, the second album by The Rentals, was released on April 13, 1999 and features numerous guests such as: Petra Haden (of that dog.; also appeared on Return of the Rentals), Donna Matthews (of Elastica), Miki Berenyi (of Lush), Tim Wheeler (of Ash), Kevin March, and Damon Albarn (of Blur). All songs written by Matt Sharp except as indicated.

This sophomore effort was delayed several times due to label demand to tweak it repeatedly, in addition to Sharp's multiple bouts of revisionary work. It is a dense, personal record, which followed up a bright, more direct, poppy debut - as such, many fans consider it The Rentals' equivalent of Pinkerton. The comparisons don't end there, as the record failed to make much chart noise, and the band was derailed for years in its wake.

In loving Memory of Mykel, Carli, and Trysta Allan.
