Album art[edit]

The album cover and inner sleeve were inspired by the René Magritte paintings Le chambre d'écoute ("The Listening Room"; 1953) and Le tombeau des lutteurs ("The Tomb of the Wrestlers"; 1961).[1]

The image on the album cover was taken at Rockingham Motor Speedway in one of the circuit's pedestrian tunnels.
