This is the last album supposedly featuring founding member [[Lol Tolhurst]] in some small capacity. Robert Smith has stated that he wrote the song "Shiver and Shake" about Lol's diminishing role in the band.[http://www.picturesofyou.us/94/94-2-26-mm-smith.htm] Even though Lol is credited for playing other instruments on the next album, ''[[Disintegration]]'', it has been officially stated that he did not contribute anything whatsoever.
