Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1981 album includes four bonus tracks. The Tubes first album for Capitol/EMI found them paired with up and coming producer and songwriter, David Foster in search of a more commercial sound. Many of their A&M albums had been very strong but failed to ignite the charts or build much fan interest beyond their rabid cult. Completion Backward Principle changed all that with 'Talk to Ya Later' (an AOR radio smash) and the chart success of the single 'Don't Want to Wait Anymore'. This edition features new liner notes by noted Rock journalist Brett Milano including fresh interviews with current band members Fee Waybill and Roger Steen.

The buff job paid off, with The Tubes' first across the board Album Radio hit, the tough strutting but uncharacteristic "Talk To You Later." The band then hit late night TV and began showing up in swim flippers performing "Sushi Girl" in a wading pool from the stage of the Tonight Show. Radio took notice and the ballad "Don't Want To Wait Anymore" snuck into the lower reaches of the Top 40. Fortunately, Foster wasn't completely able to tame these yahoos. "Attack Of The Fifty Foot Woman" was sci-fi silly in a manner that only The Tubes could make credible, and the punchy "Mr. Hate" was the confrontation of a shattering personality that the band executed perfectly on stage. "TCBWP" is likely The Tubes' most consistent album musically, but misses five stars because it was too slickly over produced, and the band never regained their experimental edge after this (unless you count the second half of "Love Bomb")
