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.

Michael Kenney is not credited for his keyboard performance - this is due to an oversight that saw no musicians, including the band members, being credited in the album booklet.

"New Frontier" is the first song co-written by Nicko McBrain (His only songwriting credit to date).

"Face in the Sand" is their first (and only) song to feature double bass drumming.

"Journeyman" is Iron Maiden's first ever fully acoustic track. Originally this song was recorded with electric guitars, but the band decided to convert it to an acoustic song. The original electric version can be found on the EP "No More Lies" (2004).

Recording information:

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