Annotation

on the album packaging, "Ready or Not" is explicitly stated as containing a repeated sample from "Ready or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide From Love)" by The Delphonics.
it also includes a repeated slowed-down sample of "Boadicea" by Enya, though this is only mentioned in their Ready or Not single, but not in this album (example).
