In 2006, the band signed to 14th Floor Records while still under contract with Beggars Banquet. The band still had one album left on this contract, therefore this album is to fulfill contractual obligations. Beggars has been criticised for cashing in on the success of 2007's Puzzle. Dozens of fans expressed anger at the label for only releasing a 12 track collection of radio edited singles rather than a more expansive album of b-sides and rarities (as Beggars subsidiary Too Pure had done for mclusky - the mcluskyism retrospective featured 57 tracks over three discs). The band and management are thought not to be pleased with the release and are not expected to promote or even look at it.
