Reception[edit]

"A fine introduction to the harmonious outfit's strangely smooth, yet sweary sound." – Tom Doyle, Q.[3]

DVD Easter egg[edit]

In the DVD special features section, go to "Change the World" (extended version) and press the right arrow button; this will take you to six Bone Thugs-n-Harmony commercials.
