Recorded at 262 Studios, Haremere Hall and Great Linford Manor.
Mixed between September, 1998 and February, 1999 at Matrix Studios.
Mastered at Masterdisk in New York.

The album saw the band moving further away from their previous metal sound to something more akin to a melancholy style of synthpop / gothic rock.

Videos were made for "So Much Is Lost" and "Permanent Solution".

Gregor Mackintosh often played keyboards instead of guitar while touring the album. A guest guitarist played his guitar parts.

Japanese edition bonus tracks:
14. So Much is Lost (Lost in Space Mix) (6:24)
15. Languish (4:10)
16. So Much is Lost (String Version) (4:19)

Comments

level   (100/100)
asi najkvalitnejší pop-rock, aký som počul (a počul som toho už dosť :) Čiastočne mi to pripomína rockovejšie Depeche Mode
level   (45/100)
Poor attempt to imitate Depeche Mode.

제일 먼저 접한 파라다이스 로스트의 앨범 Host. 팝밴드로 착각할 정도로 완성도는 좋다.
level   (70/100)
오빠가 그냥 팝송들을 때도 있네 하면서 옛여친이 갸우뚱 했던 그 앨범
level   (80/100)
모던하게 나가는 멜랑꼴링....아닌듯...
