More info:

This, the seventh 'proper' J Church studio album, is a return to their classic three-piece line-up. The album was recorded in early 2006 but its release was delayed for a year due to Lance's health problems.

Two of the songs, Flirting With the Bourgeois Dream and The King, previously appeared on 2004's Seishun Zankoku Monogatari CD, which was only released in Japan.

The album title was one originally mooted for what became One Mississippi. The track If I Have To Dance... is presumably a reference to the famous Emma Goldman quote.
