1999 and 2000 saw the band add another dozen or so songs to its repertoire, which was enough to enter the studio and concentrate on making a full-length album. With the September 2000 release of Afterimage, ROOM 1202 continued to solidify its place within the local music scene.

With its combination of dark electronic textures and melodic guitar work, Afterimage became a huge local success, quickly selling out initial pressings and receiving airplay on local radio stations. However, due to personal obligations involving individual band members, promotional interviews and shows were not scheduled and ROOM 1202 was not able to fully capitalize on their seeming imminent success.
