Notes[edit]

  • To date, Northdown's package art is the only to feature elements not created by Durant, though her drawings are incorporated into the design by Japan's marc graphic. The theme is outmoded technology, perhaps as a comment on Psapp's reputation for using both old and new technology to create their music. Besides the portable television shown above, the packaging includes photographs of:
    • A reel-to-reel audio tape recorder on the back of the tray card insert
    • A tape reel on the CD label
    • A pocket calculator beneath the clear plastic CD tray
    • A computer with integrated monitor and drives, similar to the Casio FX-9000P or TRS 80, on the back of the booklet
