The opening track, "Between Two Worlds", is dedicated to David Byron and Gary Thain, both members of Uriah Heep who died at a young age. It is the final Uriah Heep album to date to feature long-standing drummer Lee Kerslake, due to ill health forcing his departure from the band in 2007.

The limited edition version of the CD contains one additional track.
