"This album is dedicated to my mentor Daisaku Ikeda who has been my constant inspiration.
Thank you to my audience for supporting my work."

packaging is a stack of very solid heavy stock cards held together by a thick rubberband. each song on CD One has a card of it's own. on the front is an image made from the words from the title of the song or related to the title ("Straight Ahead" -> "No U Turn"). on the back are the lyrics embossed on the card. the last card is the list of "patron saints" who pre-ordered this issue, helping to fund its release. each person was asked to send a short line they would like howard to put in with the signature on the first card after the song cards (which has the credits on the back). both CDs are housed on either side of the next card.
pictures included are shown in the order they were stacked.
The colours of the rubber band and the cards varies making each release unique.
