The track called "Mothers Talk (US Remix)" on this reissue is mislabeled. I don't know where this mix comes from, but there are some very noticeable differences from the US remix that came out on vinyl (additional guitar, vocal and keyboard parts, etc.).

The real US remix of "Mothers Talk" is available on CD on "20th Century Remasters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Tears for Fears", "Shout: The Very Best of Tears for Fears" and the 1999 remaster of "Songs From the Big Chair".
