their 1999 debut returns, reunited with a bonus disc of content that was always intended to be part of the album from its initial release, but sadly never saw the light of day.

The bonus disc comprises two long-form ambient pieces, ‘Happiness and Colour’ and ‘The Hut’, both of which last over 20 minutes and represented the band's desire to. However, the band and label ultimately decided to remove these tracks from the album prior to release. the band originally planned to record the album in four separate continents, but financial constraints slimmed the recording locations down; however, the album was still recorded in a variety of locations and pulled inspiration from sources as diverse as Jamaican reggae, Disney's movie “The Black Hole” and Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart".
