Recorded and mixed at ''M.M.C. Studio'', Copenhagen, DK.

Chart positions:
#38 (Sweden)
#89 (USA)

A music video was made for the song ''Welcome Home''.

Forms one story arc with the next album "Conspiracy".

Some vinyl editions omit the last track "Phone Call".

Reissued by Roadrunner Records in 1997 remastered on a gold disc and a new expanded booklet with the bonus tracks:
13. The Invisible Guests (Rehearsal) (05:19)
14. Bye, Bye Missy (Rehearsal) (04:48)

These tracks are instrumental versions from rehearsals prior to the recording of the album and feature King and Andy on guitar, Mikkey on drums and Timi Hansen on bass. Hansen was still part of the band during preproduction and actually taught Hal Patino the bass lines.

Reissued by Roadrunner Records on January 27th 2004 as a part of Roadrunner's Two from the Vault series remastered along with Conspiracy on 2CD's, CD 1 has the same bonus tracks as the 1997 reissue.
