This album was the last of the decade with participation from the drummer Gary Husband, whom left the band in 1993. In 1994 the album Forever Now was recorded with Phil Gould on drums. Gary returned to Level 42 in 1999, and recently he participated in the recording of their recent album Retroglide. It is also the first album without collaboration from Boon Gould, original guitarist of the group. He left the band in 1987, but he contributed to writing some songs for the album "Staring at the Sun" (1988).

It's part of this studio album, the hit "Guaranteed", placed 17th in the UK single charts in 1991, this song had two versions of its music video produced.
