Black Francis reflected about the record in an interview with Rolling Stone. He said, "For people who wanted raw and primal, it fit the bill. And for people who wanted it to be sonically full and not haphazard sounding but sounding like it had real vision, it satisfied those people.
"So it was twice as many people. Before we recorded with Gil Norton, we made a little demo and I remember lying on Joey Santiago's living room floor in his apartment, going, 'Wow, we really did something special.' And we hadn't even made the record yet."
