The Loud Family's fifth full length album, featuring the same line-up as on 1998's "Days for Days". At the time of its release, it was announced as the final Loud Family album. In fact, the title of the last song, "The Motion of Ariel," is a reference to Shakespeare's last play, "The Tempest".

The title of the album refers to a legal concept: specifically, an "attractive nuisance" is something dangerous that is likely to be attractive, especially to children, and so is likely to entice them into a hazardous situation. In fact, the cover image - which looks rather like a swimming pool drained of water (instead, it's full of leaves) - depicts an "attractive nuisance."
