When the album was released in the UK, in 2005, it contained four bonus tracks. They included live versions of songs from their debut album, The Presidents of the United States of America, the previously unreleased song "Useless Crushes", and a cover of the Sex Pistols' "Problems".

Critical receptionEdit

The Spokesman-Review wrote that the album "finds The Presidents comfortably spinning absurdist fun-rock that recalls its super-successful 1995 self-titled debut."[8] The Stranger called the album "vintage Presidents: infectious exuberance, great hooks, and a renewed sense of pop purpose."[9]
