The CD came with unique packaging. As the tab on the right was pulled, the CD popped out of the left side, while the image a woman through a keyhole changed to that of an eye, while, on the righthand, images and credits were displayed.
Critical reception [ edit ]
Peeping Tom received a generally positive response from critics. On Metacritic, the album has an approval rating of 64/100 based on twenty-two reviews. [4 ]
Pitchfork wrote, "Unfortunately, Peeping Tom, a project that's been six years in the making, is less a display of Patton's remarkable range and eclecticism and more a display of Patton's remarkable lack of aesthetic restraint. In short: the guy, bless his heart, is just trying too hard." [10 ]
Norah Jones' appearance on the song "Sucker" attracted attention, as it was the first time Jones had used profanity in a recording. [15 ]
