The album became the group's first top 10 in the UK album charts, peaking at number 9 and began a new era for the band, being less experimental and jazzy than previous releases.
Notably, the album featured no instrumental tracks whatsoever, with the band now focussing heavily on songs.
The first single, 'Out of Sight, Out of Mind;, was released only in the UK prior to album release and reached number 41 on the UK singles chart. For the album version the song was remixed and a new lead vocal recorded. The second single 'The Sun Goes Down (Living it Up)', with keyboard player and (mostly) backup vocalist Mike Lindup on lead vocals, was released in the UK, Oceania and other parts Europe and America and gave the group its first top 10 in the UK. The third single 'Micro Kid' peaked at number 37 on the UK single charts.Tracklisting:
