Thal described Abnormal as "..a continuation of a very personal tale. If Normal was the first chapter, then Abnormal is the second chapter of the same book. It's a tale of how my life has been 3 years after Normal, after touring with Guns N' Roses and [everything else]". The songs "Abnormal", "Glad to Be Here" and "Objectify" have been performed by Thal as solo spots in Guns N' Roses concerts. Objectify was featured as Thal's solo in Appetite for Democracy 3D. Thal mentioned "Green" being one of his favorite songs he's ever written.
