It is widely regarded as one of Tool’s best albums, and features the first collaboration between Tool and the artist Alex Grey.

The album was initially released in CD and Cassette versions. In 2005 a vinyl edition was published, which included a limited run of signed vinyl available to Toolarmy members. The signed vinyls, especially those with a unique “doodle” by Adam are some of the most prized Tool collectibles.
