Right after release, Virgin Records objected to two songs on this original pressing: 'To A Reason' & 'Victim Of Stars'. Both tracks feature David Sylvian, who was signed to Virgin at the time, on lead vocals. This First Edition was replaced by a more common one on which these two songs were replaced. Though Sylvian is named on this edition (contributing guitar and to the writing), his remaining vocal performances are credited pseudonymously as Mr. X.
