The first Ant album to be released in the US before the UK.  It's working title was called Slapdash Eden and 25 tracks had been written for the project, of which 11 appeared on the final product.  The Japanese release came with a mini poster (shown above - click for larger view).  The Dutch artwork is identical to the UK/US ones.

Another interesting development has been the discovery of promotional cards for the album.  So far only eight have be found, but each relates to one of the album's tracks including Adam's real meanings behind the lyrics of the track (plus and introduction card).  The condition of some of these cards wasn't that great as a record shop was using them as coffee coasters!  Ant Lady has worked her digital magic on them and are reproduced below.  If you click on the images you will see sexier, larger ones.

EMI released a download only compilation called Extra Wonderful featuring the tracks off the singles from this album on June 26th 2006.  For more details on this, click here..
