So, I'm assuming this North American release was the only one with this particular track sequence--it's almost an inverse of the original European one that presumably was what the band intended. Can ayone shed light on this? I first found this cd in a music shop in the mid-90s and only just now discovered that the track order I know and love wasn't (I'm assuming) what the band originally laid out. How distressing.
