Although “space and time” are common themes throughout the release, with songs such as “Wasted Years“, “Caught Somewhere in Time“, “Stranger in a Strange Land” and “Deja-Vu”, the band never intended for it to be a concept album, with Harris stating, “We certainly never went in there and said, ‘Right let’s write a load of songs on the subject of time.” While the majority of the release’s songs have disappeared from the band’s live shows shortly after its supporting tour, “Wasted Years” and “Heaven Can Wait” have appeared on several subsequent tours.
