Transform marked, both musically and visually, an obvious change from Powerman 5000's previous science fiction theme. The band composed songs in a simpler, more straightforward manner with less emphasis on industrial elements and heaviness. The video for its lead single, "Free," also demonstrated the band's visual stylistic detour; rather than space costumes, the majority of band members are dressed in denim while performing in a red room covered in graffiti, creating a colorful, more punk rock edge.
The album artwork contains symbols reminiscent of the Amphisbaena. Adorning the CD artwork are four two-headed arrows wrapped back pointing at each other, the outermost one sprouting two extra arrows for a total of six on the right, and underneath the CD are two worm like creatures face to face forming a circle.
