Notes[edit]

  • "Marie" documents the death of original lead singer Eric Martin of a drug overdose.
  • "Don't Go Blue" has Bobbie Nelson, sister of the country musician Willie Nelson, on piano. It is one of the band's few recorded forays into the country music genre.
  • The original print run of the CD had a lenticular cover. This gave it a 3D effect and allowed the album title to appear and disappear.
  • "Born With a Tail" was released as single and made into a music video.
