Trivia

  • The cover shows Sonic's Sonic Adventure redesign (albeit missing the shoe soles), rather than his original design seen in the game.
    • The album released almost a year before Sonic's redesign first appeared in a game, though it was designed by the Sonic Adventure character designer Yuji Uekawa.[1]
  • The album cover features the emphasizing of the letter "R" at the beginning of each of the sentences.
