Unusual promo release consisting of the group's often-eclectic b-sides. Although best-known for the slick "Songs From The Big Chair", this disc shows the group had a very experimental side which was only hinted at on their LP releases.

While most of these tracks have been subsequently reissued many times on other compilations and deluxe editions, this disc does have one thing going for it: the version of "We Are Broken" included here is the real 7" version, whereas it seems all other CD releases with this track actually have some version of "Broken Revisited", which has added reverb.

Not exactly the sort of thing the casual fan would enjoy, but of interest to dedicated fans and completists.
