Miscellanea[edit]

  • The first single, "Soluble Words," was released several months before the album, in late 1999. A second song, "Slingshot," was serviced to radio around the time of the album's release, but no single was ever released for purchase.
  • "Paper Thin Soul" contains drum sounds that were sampled from Electric Light Orchestra's huge 1979 hit "Don't Bring Me Down".
  • Album liner notes fielding the assertion of patrilineal kinship with syndicated columnist Dave Berry did not go to final press.
