He added that the album had an underlying theme of distaste for "habits, addictions, [and] impulses that we can't control. This is about finding a way to represent our collective spirit,” says James frontman Tim Booth, discussing the band’s curious new figurehead.

Inspired by playing the new songs live, the band decided to gather in a circle and record live-in-the-studio [8] at Ridge Farm Studios in Capel, Surrey with engineer Gary Langan. ChartAttack wrote that fans of the band's earlier hits, such as "Sit Down" and "Laid", would be "disappointed with this disc," however, "longtime James fans should find much to enjoy. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" premiered on BBC Radio 1 on 18 May 2001; the band appeared on Later.The UK special edition included the bonus songs "Gaudi" and "What Is It Good For" as 9th and 10th tracks. Most of the finished album was made up from live takes and demos that were made before recording with Eno.

Throughout July and September, the band performed at the T in the Park, Guildford Live, City in the Park, [30] Witnness, [35] Benicàssim, and Annual Youth Music festivals, across the UK, Spain and Portugal. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was released as a single in late June, followed a week later by Pleased to Meet You on 2 July through Mercury Records.At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 65, based on six reviews. Space" begins as a Radiohead-esque track with an electro intro before shifting into chorus sections in the vein of Simple Minds. On 6 September, the band announced their departure from Mercury [36] after completing their six-album contract, though they planned to release a compilation and reissue their back catalogue in the future through the label. On 19 June, Dotmusic revealed the album's artwork, which is a computer-generated image that merged all of the members' faces. At the end of November, the band played a few shows in Spain and Portugal, [36] leading up to a UK tour in December.
