Produced by the Dust Brothers, the album welded rock and hip-hop. "That was before Kid Rock…" Neil observed in 2000, "so no-one was really ready for it then. If it came out today it'd probably sell fifty million copies."
The album was put on hold while Neil was dealing with his daughter Skylar, who was suffering from nephroblastoma. Neil included a song on the album in honor of Skylar called "Skylar's Song". Skylar died from her illness on August 15, 1995, a month before the album was released. Following its release, Vince returned to Mötley in 1996. This is his last album to feature bassist Robbie Crane and drummer Vikki Fox. Guitarist Brent Woods also plays on the record. He previously jammed with Wildside and was later a touring guitarist for Warrant.
The album charted at #139 on the Billboard 200. "Skylar's Song" was released as a single.
