"Naked in the Rain" was a No. 4 hit in the UK Singles Chart and a No. 5 dance hit in the US in 1990, which was originally issued on blue vinyl. It was followed by "(Can You) Feel the Passion" (whose melody samples Bizarre Inc's "Playing with Knives"), which hit No. 1 on both Billboard's Dance Club Play and the UK Dance Chart in 1992, reaching No. 14 on the UK Singles Chart. They also had a Top 40 hit in the UK Singles Chart in November 1990 with the No. 31 hit, "Little Brother".
As McBroom is a backing vocalist for Pink Floyd, their records feature guest appearances from David Gilmour and Richard Wright. A couple of decades later, both Youth and McBroom went on to be involved in the completion of Pink Floyd's 2014 album The Endless River, which charted at number 1 in the UK charts.
