Stuart Murdoch recalled that this album felt more difficult to make than prior albums. The band introduced many stylistic changes on this album, such as an organic strings section and more songs with lead vocals by other members of You Walk Like A Peasant band; Sarah Martin sings on "Waiting for the Moon to Rise", Isobel Campbell sings on "Family Tree", and performs duets with Stevie Jackson who sings in an unusually low voice on "Beyond the Sunrise" and Stuart Murdoch on "Women's Realm".
Jackson also sings lead vocal on "The Wrong Girl". The album's title comes from a piece of graffiti on a public toilet wall Stuart Murdoch had seen years earlier and remembered. The album was released to generally favourable reviews. Within the album's photography collection are pictures of two books, Beyond the Sunrise and I Fought in a War.
Both books are titles of songs on the album, but the books are fictional creations of Murdoch's. Due to the band's interest in literaturefans have tried to locate the books that they believed had "inspired" the songs.
