Ode to Io is the first full-length album from Lowrider, released on Meteor City.[2][3][Link to precise page]

Controversial upon its release for its dangerous similarity to stoner rock godfathers Kyuss, it has since developed a strong cult following after the band disbanded in 2003. It is currently out of print.
