This album features the band's folk songs along with new approaches toward reggae pop and rock beats. Tracks like "My Blue Tears" and "Second Fiddle" are evidence of this. Mike Heron would even go as far as abandoning the use of his six-string wire-strung acoustic guitar, custom built by John Bailey.

This is also the first album after the departure of Licorice McKechnie. She would be replaced by Gerard Dott.
