Lauded as revealing a much darker side to the band, the album drew comparisons to Joy Division from many quarters. Recorded in March 1981 at Rockfield Studios the album won NME's Best Album and Best Dressed LP Awards in 1981 and also made it into Rolling Stones list of 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. The cover is a shot taken on a wet Southern Welsh beach on a day off from recording. Photographer Brian Griffin using the dark clouds in the sky and the low sun on the horizon to silhouette the band. The bands manager Bill Drummond saw them representing "cold, dampness, darkness". The band released two singles from the album "A Promise" and "Over The Wall'.
