The cover of the regular edition is an X-Ray of Hyde's own skull. "The Cape of Storms" was used as the theme song for the movie Kagen no Tsuki, which Hyde starred in.

An English version was released overseas on July 4. A Japanese release of the English version, titled Roentgen English, was released on October 14, 2004. That version came with three bonus songs that were originally used as B-side's on Hyde's singles.
