Q: What's up with the album cover?
A: Take it for what it is, the following was written by Peter Saville in Q Magazine's issue about the 100 best record covers:
"Now a New Order album is coming up and it poses an interesting set of problems for me. What is a New Order cover in 2001?
It has been suggested we shouldn't do one at all - as New Order's covers are known for being leading edge and as print is no longer as ground-breaking as multi-media, then perhaps we should just put something on the internet - nevertheless, we will still need something physical to put in someone's hand.
Overall, sleeve design is healthier today. It used to be awful and now, when you look through the record racks, it's a lot better. The designer Michael Peters, who led the way in consumer packaging design in this country, once asked me what my goals were as a designer. I said something ambitious such as, 'I'd like to make the UK look much better'. He said, 'My ambition is to make fish finger packaging just ten percent better'. As the years have gone by, I've understood what he meant. That if you can make something as generic as fish finger packaging as much as ten percent better in your lifetime, then that's really as much as you can hope to do. If we look in any music store today, the standard of sleeve design is so much better than it was 20 years ago. People care about the total package now and if they resort to the classic 'portrait on the cover', then they aspire to greater quality - that's something, isn't it?"

Q: Who is on the cover of the album?
A: The German actress Nicolette Krebitz.

Q: Who assembled the excellent discography that comes with the German pressing?
A: We are not sure but it seems as if that person really likes this Discography...

Q: I have seen different colors of the stripes on the CD. What's up with that?
A: Apparently promo copies of the album come with a red stripe, whereas all other releases come with a green stripe.

Q: I have heard about an official live recording of the Area:One show in Los Angeles, what's the story?
A: There is a CDR with the live show at the Area:One festival in California, August 5, 2001, see the scan. However, the CDR, "Area One Tour - Live In LA", is a privately made CDR from a common bootleg.

Q: Are the version on the US CDR, "Album Mixes", different from the regular album?
A: [Mark Reed]
