As of late 2011, this is the band's most successful album both critically and commercially, and it is considered by most to be the peak of their discography. The album won the band their first Grammy after five previous nominations, and was certified gold on October 3, 1995.
The band also released a mini-movie of the same title. The movie features videos of most of the songs of the album intercalated in the plot. (see Beyond Belief)
