It was recorded at Rockfield Studios with producer Dave Eringa and saw the band going for a more polished and commercial sound, it reached number 17 in the U.K album charts when it was released on Creation Records in 1999 but the band split at their peak after releasing only 2 singles from it, both entered the U.K top 40. An additional EP, Paralyse, was released prior to the album but was not eligible for the chart as the EP contained more than the maximum number of songs allowed.
