After the relative commercial failure of the band's previous album, Jump the Gun (1990), the bass guitarist Allan Delong, the keyboard player Alan Owen and the drummer Phil More left the group by late 1990, leaving only the singer Ronnie Atkins and the guitarist Ken Hammer. The two remaining members began writing songs for a new album, this time with "full creative control" according to Atkins. Due to the tumultuous situation around the band, Atkins and Hammer wrote "aggressive and heavy" songs. According to Atkins, the band decided to work with the Danish producer Flemming Rasmussen to avoid the "over-produced" sound of Jump the Gun. To complete the band's line-up, Atkins and Hammer recruited drummer Michael Fast and bass guitar player Kenn Jackson.
The album includes the single "Please Don't Leave Me" (a cover version of the Thin Lizzy song) which has become Pretty Maids' signature song. It was later re-recorded in an acoustic version for the band's fifth studio album, Stripped (1993).
