"All of the sudden, we all got along and stopped worrying about making a hit record, as a result, this is a really good album. Tommy and Ed produced it, and it has a great guitar sound. All the songs are solid."
The cover photo for the album was taken by photographer George DuBose in a subway in Central Park. DuBose relates: "Johnny wanted a picture that would evoke memories of the gang in A Clockwork Orange."
