Trivia

  • The song title "In Defense of Natalie Maines" is a reference to a controversy surrounding her and her band, the Dixie Chicks. The controversy was caused by her criticism of then-US President George W. Bush and the 2003 Invasion of Iraq. Despite its title, the song does not reference the controversy itself, but rather the issues surrounding it.
    • Also, the ending of the extended version of the song includes samples of speeches given by Ralph Nader.

Goofs

  • On discogs.com, the titles for songs 2 and 3 are swapped.
  • Central City Music Company is not credited for performing "Hubbert's Peak Theme." The original album the song is on, Central Boise Library, is listed as the artist instead.
  • The audio quality of "Supernova" is lower than the rest of the songs.
