It also contains a documentary on the recording of "Strange Animal", demo excerpts, a new animated video by Gowan called "The Checkmate" and features 5 videos which are (You're A) Strange Animal, Guerilla Soldier, Cosmetics, A Criminal Mind and a live recording of Styx recording A Criminal Mind.

Spelling note: Tracklist for CD spells track 7 "Guerilla" from Guerilla Soldier with two r (Guerrilla). This is a typo. Other releases do not show that typo.
