Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

Our random article today is The Understanding.

The Understanding is the second studio album by Norwegian electronic music duo Röyksopp, released on 22 June 2005 by Wall of Sound. A limited edition of the album, including a bonus CD, is sold in a Digipak. The Understanding debuted at number 13 on the UK Albums Chart with 22,466 copies sold in its first week. The album was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) on 1 December 2006, and had sold 103,500 copies in the United Kingdom as of March 2009.

Similarly to Melody A.M., songs from The Understanding were used widely in television adverts and computer games. "Circuit Breaker" and "Only This Moment" were used in an episode of Danmarks Radio's consumer programme, named Rabatten. "Follow My Ruin" was also included on the soundtrack to FIFA 06, the 2005 edition of EA Sports's long-running soccer video game franchise. "What Else Is There?" was used in an O2 television advertisement in the Czech Republic in 2007 and in Slovakia in 2008. It was also used in the films Cashback (2006) and Meet Bill (2007). A remixed version of "What Else Is There?" was featured on the 15 April 2007 episode of the HBO series Entourage.
