Notes

Compilation Errors:
Track 1 "Lose Your Love" is different from the original LP version. The version on this disc first appeared on "The Platinum Collection" compilation (2006).

Track 5 "22339" is 1:40 longer than the original LP version.

Track 13 is listed on the sleeve as "Mixing On The Ceiling", which was a megamix of the bands songs originally released on the "Lose Your Love" 12". What is actually on the disc is some new sounding remix of "Living On The Ceiling".

Rehashing my 2008 Amazon review:
Out of print for more than twenty years, Blancmange's third studio finally gets reissued. But sadly, the original album is not intact here. There are many alterations and the liner notes do not acknowledge any of them.
"Lose Your Love" is not the album version. It's a less satisfying version with a different introduction and a weaker drum sound. "Other Animals" likewise features a different introduction. "22339" is nearly two minutes longer than the album version. "No Wonder They Made It Back!" is about twenty seconds longer than the original album version. As for the bonus material, neither 12" mix of the first two singles ("Whats Your Problem", "Lose Your Love") appears here. So you get no familiar version of "Lose Your Love" (possibly the best track on this album) at all. Thankfully, you do get the 12" mix of "I Can See It" (the re-titled, re-recorded single version of "Why Don't They Leave Things Alone"). Perhaps the biggest frustration is that "Mixing On The Ceiling" is not the singles megamix originally released on the "Lose Your Love" 12". Instead, its a version of "Living On The Ceiling" (from the first album), that has never appeared on any of their 12" singles, and is likely a previously unreleased mix, maybe even done recently. Again, the liner notes do not mention any of this. So, all in all, the original 1985 West Germany CD issue on London is an essential purchase if you want a faithful representation of the original (vinyl) album. This 2008 version is worth having, but know that it's a somewhat botched effort. (Also, The latest 2017 3CD reissue of this album fixes some of these errors. The correct "Lose Your Love" and "22339" reappear, and it supplies the true 10-minute-plus megamix of "Mixing On The Ceiling").
