The tracklisting provided refers to the double-LP version. Two CD versions exist: instrumental and not. The non-instrumental version omits the songs "My Hands Switched with Mannequin Hands", "Bad Girls", and "M Ren Devine". The instrumental version omits the songs "Stamina", "Other Countries", and "Nevermind". "Stamina" also appears on Venetian Snares' 2370894 (2002).

The cover art shows Cex in the same pose as David Bowie on the cover of Heroes (1977). The instrumental version is the same, though Cex has duct tape over his mouth.
