Le prime copie del doppio LP presentano la copertina in bassorilievo. In Italia esce singolo, "liscio" e privo di alcuni brani. In copertina uno dei millenari White Horses di Uffington, attrazione principale, insieme al museo della storica Ferrovia GWR, nella zona di Swindon.

Moulding: "Credo che Black Sea contenesse canzoni pi¨ di maniera, mentre English Settlement Ŕ colmo di frammenti d'assurditÓ gettati dentro un po' alla rinfusa".

Partridge:"Posseggo una nuova chitarra, l'altra l'ho permutata quando ho concluso l'affare al negozio di "compra-vendita-e-scambio" dell'usato. Se l'avessi cambiata con un mucchio di Lego, credo che nell'album avreste sentito suonare del Lego".
