Virgin Records objected to two songs on the original pressing; To A Reason, Victim Of Stars. Both tracks featured David Sylvian, who was signed to Virgin at the time, on lead vocals. This second, more common, edition replaces those tracks.
Although Sylvian is named on this edition (contributing guitar and to the writing), his remaining vocal performances are credited pseudonymously as Mr. X

Sticker on front: "New version featuring Dead Can Dance"
