The second full-length record from Front Line Assembly, State of Mind was also the second of three albums the group released on a month-by-month basis between December 1987 and February 1988. Recorded with the group's original line-up of Bill Leeb and Michael Balch, the album finds Front Line in an experimental dance music mode typical of its early work.

The original recording released on Dossier in 1988 begins with "First Reprisal" and doesn't include "Inside Out," and it's artwork is a yellow and black mono-print of a doll in a toaster.
