Also released in a limited edition 2LP gatefold picture disc and as a DVD containing 5.1 surround sound and stereo versions, with the videos for "Wildest Dreams" and "Rainmaker".

Music videos were made for the songs "Wildest Dreams," "Rainmaker," and "No More Lies (live)."

The computer-generated cover art for the album was provided by David Patchett, but he asked to be removed from the credits because he was not satisfied with the result. The version used was actually a prototype provided by Patchett, but the band decided to use it in its incomplete form. Upon close inspection, one can note several errors: The character on the far right looking out of the picture appears to have a broken neck. The white dog is standing on the snake underneath it. The baby's foot is cutting into the dog while its left hand is cutting into its own face and appears more to be suspended in mid-air than sitting on a wolf. The small child character at the front on the left is standing on the other characters foot. The character doing a back-flip on the left of Eddie has a dislocated shoulder, his left hand is also against his right arm instead of on the floor and the back-flipping character's right leg is dislocated.

Recording information:

Recorded at Sarm Studios, (West) London.
Mastered at Metropolis Mastering, London.
