MxPx gained critical recognition for this album and landed a slot supporting for The Offspring and Cypress Hill on the Conspiracy of One tour.[7] "Responsibility" proved to be a minor radio hit, peaking at #24 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart.[8] Bassist Mike Herrera said on the It Came From Bremerton VHS tape that his song writing on The Ever Passing Moment was inspired by Elvis Costello's second album This Year's Model.

The intro countdown in the song "The Next Big Thing" is Dave Grohl screaming "1, 2, 3, go!".[9]
