The process of making this album began during the tour of the first album. At the Glastonbury festival in the UK, the group had begun to put down new material that would go into the making of the sophomore album. We were recording every other night we were not performing. We ended up producing more than 30 demos to choose from. At the end, only 15 made it into the cut and the album was released six months after.
The album received generally positive reviews from critics with a score of 80/100 by Metacritic. Q published a mixed reveiw praising the album for its "authenticity" but questioning its lack of direction. Entertainment Today gave the album a 4/5 stars giving applause to the album for what it called "an ambitious album pushing the frontiers of pop music all over the world".
