- The writing credits for "Wake Me Up" are repeated for "See The Day". Additionally, only 'Music By' credits have been listed for "Wake Me Up".
- The inlay states that all tracks were produced by Brian Higgins and Xenomania; The "Sacred Trust" credits prove otherwise.
- The credits for "Hanging On The Telephone" are incorrectly connected to "Sound Of The Underground" in the liner notes.
- There are no writing credits listed for "I Predict A Riot".
