This Town " saw minor success; " Cancer for the Cure ", the second single from the album, was used on the American Beauty soundtrack. Still a three-piece band on stage, Tommy Walter was replaced by Adam Siegel.
Part of the American leg of the tour was cancelled after the death of E's mother. The album, which was recorded almost entirely in E's basement, is lighter and more upbeat than its predecessor. The first single, " Mr. E's Beautiful Blues ", was co-written by Simpson.
