The title of Our Lady Peace
's first concept album
. It's also unusual because it was written and recorded in less than a year. The title is a reference to Ray Kurzweil
's book The Age Of Spiritual Machines
- When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence
about an isolated future
affecting what it means to be alive. Guitarist Mike Turner
read it, then showed it to Raine Maida
, and after that they got Kurzweil to get involved.
Pearl Jam's Matt Cameron filled in for normal OLP drummer Jeremy Taggart (Josh Freese of A Perfect Circle was the backup if Cameron couldn't make it) for two songs after Taggart received a leg injury after being assaulted.
