Due to a double-tracking technique used to record "Catch", the guitars may cancel each other out when it is played on some stereos. If this occurs, the CD case suggests that the track should be called "Catch (Amazing special rare 'no guitars' mix)".

The final track, "The Last Time", was not meant to be about the band at the time of recording.
