Tracks 1-25 are actual album, tracks 26-42 are bonus tracks.

"This album first begun with the first of the bonus disc, "The Greatest Song Of All Time", on the 10th of September 2013. Back in those days, the guys had no idea what journey faced them with the album. The track is pretty spacey and warm but doesn't exactly point to something of an album's worth. Despite it not being part of the official album, it's the first song the three people not known as the Departed Skeletons worked on together.

The album wasn't really meant to be an album at all in the first place - de facto leader Eddy originally intended this to be a couple of funny tunes so that the guys had something to look back on in future years. In a way, that's still true - the guys have great memories recording these songs. It's an unofficial concept album about how the band falls apart - though mainly seen in the spoken word tracks it's a constant theme that never quite leaves the album. By the last song, the band is effectively over and presumably concludes the band as an entity.

One of the more notable things is that the band attempted to cover lots of ground with every song and have thus covered numerous genres along the way - not only that, but they also parody these styles of music to the point of lunacy. Examples of this are the constant use of constipated voices and over-exaggerated stereotypes in every song.

We had a great time recording this and we know you will have a great time listening to it. We hope you'll donate to our cause because it's not easy making the greatest album of all time - really takes it out of you."
