Notes

  • Despite the release date of early June, the album was being sold in many countries during the last week of May.
  • Several different drummers are featured on this album:
    Matt Walker: Tracks 1, 2, 6, 10, 11 and 13
    Joey Waronker: Tracks 3-5 and 9
    Matt Cameron: Track 14
    Bon Harris (drum programming): Tracks 2-5, 7-9 and 13
  • Other guests include Jimmy & Dennis Flemion of the Frogs (backup vocals on "To Sheila" & "Behold! The Night Mare"); Bon Harris of Nizer Ebb (backup vocals on "For Martha"); producer Brad Wood (backup vocals on "Behold! The Night Mare" and organ on "Blank Page").
  • "17" is actually the vocal line (played on piano) of the then-unreleased song "Blissed and Gone", which had been played live a handful of times, and was later released in an alternate version on the Still Becoming Apart promo, and again on the Greatest Hits/Judas O compilation and the digital Rarities and B-Sides collection.
  • The Japanese version of the album adds an extra track (Once in a While) after Blank Page and before 17, making 17 the 17th track. It also features lyrics in English and Japanese, and writings in Japanese (presumably about Adore) dated 15 April 1998.
  • The 2LP version of the album is a mono mix, and splits the album over 3 sides (the 4th side is left blank). It comes in a double gatefold cover, featuring the Adore album artwork in full color, as opposed to black and white on the CD/CS release.
  • The 2-disc set is the full album with an extra CD containing the Ava Adore & Perfect videos in VCD format. The VCD format can be played on computers and on DVD players.
