The video for "Inconsolable" was shot by Norwegian director/photographer Ray Kay, who also shot the band for their album packaging. It features the group in vignettes which take place during a solar eclipse on Venice Beach. The video is a visual catharsis, symbolic of the emotions in the lyrics.

The group worked on the album with a myriad of top notch songwriters and producers including Dan Muckala, John Shanks, Billy Mann and former *NSYNC member JC Chasez.
