Track 13 is a six-minute-long song followed by a minute of silence and then a hidden, untitled track. Diarmuid Dalton is credited on this track.
Re-issued in remastered form in 2013 on The End Records. This included a second disc of remastered (and in two cases, new mixes) demos. In addition, it includes the compilation song 'If I Could Only Be What You Want' also in remastered form and expanded liner notes in a three-panel digipak.
Vinyl issue from 2013 - a double-vinyl release but did not contain the second disc worth of material.

This is basically the album that proved Godflesh were still musically relevant and slightly ahead of others in the 21st Century, though still a relatively underground group as well. Essentially, I find this is on par with previous release, Us and Them-no better or worse. There's a distinctive heaviness in some songs-The first half, essentially-which seems to eclipse the rest of the album in terms of quality, but it's more or less consistent enough to please anyone who has liked Godflesh's earlier material. You can sort of link the musical direction of Jesu to this as well, as some songs on here do sound similar (generally the latter half of the album).
