Like their first recording, the cover artwork was done by Doug Henderson, fellow student at Kentucky Christian College. The band had more funds for this recording and included lyrics on the booklet. The quality of the recording is also much better. Production and mixing was primarily done by the band. The engineers at Landmark Recording Studio did all the engineering and contributed to some production.
A real drum kit was used instead of the electronic toms and kick as was used on "You Turn". Live cymbals and snare were used on "You Turn", however the toms were the electronic type popular at the time. Reaper's Train was relatively all new material at the time. All the songs were written within a year of the recording. The song "DC-10" drew a lot of attention and was popular at the live shows. This version also appears on Audio Adrenaline's first album with the Forefront.
