Eno likened the process to when artists make their debut record: "they're full of enthusiasm and excitement and they know what they're doing and it's a pleasure. Most of the finished album was made up from live takes and demos that were made before recording with Eno. Though the band had planned to use a different producer for the main sessions, [3] Eno and guitarist/violinist Saul Davies were enlisted to produce most of the recordings.

He added that the album had an underlying theme of distaste for "habits, addictions, [and] impulses that we can't control.Fine" is a percussion-led song that is followed by "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)", a slow-building indie rock track with a psychedelic bridge section. They had written over 30 tracks for inclusion on their next record; on the opening night, the band played seven of these new songs. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 65, based on six reviews. Vocalist Tim Booth left the band after their December UK tour; the final show of which was released as the Getting Away with It. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was included on the band's fourth compilation album Fresh as a Daisy – The Singles (2007).

Throughout July and September, the band performed at the T in the Park, Guildford Live, City in the Park, [30] Witnness, [35] Benicàssim, and Annual Youth Music festivals, across the UK, Spain and Portugal. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was released as a single in late June, followed a week later by Pleased to Meet You on 2 July through Mercury Records. He edited the track; after giving Booth a copy, he re-did the vocal take, resulting in the final version. Booth said the album was the first since their fifth studio album Laid (1993) that they had strayed from the Verse-chorus-verse structure.

English Beefcake" stars a man who ends relationships, while being hesitant in causing pain as a result of them.

Playlouder's Sarah Bee considered it a "more low-key" affair that was "less brash" than Millionaires. The remainder of the tracks were credited to different producers: "Falling Down" by Eno and KK; "The Shining", "Give It Away" and "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" by James and Eno; "Gaudi" by James and Baynton-Power; "What Is It Good For" by James; "Fine" by James, Eno and KK; and "Alaskan Pipeline" by James. At the end of November, the band played a few shows in Spain and Portugal, [36] leading up to a UK tour in December. The Shining", "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" and "Alaskan Pipeline" were engineered by James Loughrey.The final show of their December tour was filmed, [41] and later released as the live/video album Getting Away with It. The following month, the band revealed they were in the process of recording with Brian Eno, [4] doing pre-production.

Scratchcard" and "I Thought You Were", outtakes from the album's sessions, were included on the career-spanning box set The Gathering Sound (2012), alongside the music video for "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)". Although he doesn’t play any instruments, he’s so life-like that there’s already speculation about his “personality”.English Beefcake" and "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" were included on the band's third compilation album The Collection (2004). He expanded: "It's their tightest, freshest, most contemporary batch of songs, weatherproofed to stand the test of time. In March 2000, the band revealed they had been writing new material and planned to record later in the year, with the aim of releasing an album in January 2001. On 29 October, Booth announced he would be leaving the band after their current tour engagements, with the band aiming to continue recording. On 6 September, the band announced their departure from Mercury [36] after completing their six-album contract, though they planned to release a compilation and reissue their back catalogue in the future through the label.
