Album information[edit]

The album peaked at number 72 on the Billboard 200, and made a re-entry into the top 100 of the chart, based on the growing mainstream success of the single "Wasteland". The album as a whole has been frequently compared to the work of Tool, Deftones, and, to a lesser extent, Incubus.

Slightly different versions of the songs "Wasteland", "Through The Iris", and "Insects" all appeared on the 2004 album Killing All That Holds You.

The hidden track "Slowly Falling Awake" is after "The Autumn Effect," however not as a separate track.

There are two instrumental pieces in negative time prior to "Wasteland" and "Empires". They will automatically be played if the tracks prior to Wasteland and Empires ("Cast It Out" and "Through the Iris", respectively) are played. If played from an MP3 device or computer, these instrumental pieces will be on the same track as "Cast It Out" and "Through the Iris" and play after the songs are over.
