The album was recorded on 8 track in two days by Duncan himself and is a melodic, rocking debut with old and new alt rock influences; described in the UK magazine Mojo as "a solid set of nagging melodies and chiming riffs that burrow into the soul". A limited addition single "Suzee" preceded the album release on September 29 in the UK.
