Curiosities[edit]

Lead singer and songwriter Robert Brown wanted to pay homage to the cover of the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by James Hilton. He even replicated the chips and scratches of his own copy.[1]

"Sleep Isabella" was used in a scene in the HBO series True Blood, Season 5 Episode 4.[2]

"She" is based on Robert's wife Kristina Erickson, which is also the band's keyboardist.
