Digitally re-mastered version re-released by Peaceville in 2003 with the following bonus tracks:
11. Your Possible Pasts (Pink Floyd cover) (4:28)
12. One of the Few (Pink Floyd cover) (1:50)
13. Better Off Dead (Bad Religion cover) (4:21)
14. Goodbye Cruel World (Pink Floyd cover) (1:39)
These 3 last tracks are sometimes mistaken for the ones on a supposed My Dying Bride / Anathema split that does NOT exist. In fact, they are taken from the 1998 Peaceville compilation titled "Peaceville X" and are, respectively, track 1, 5 and 14.
The album title refers to the "Alternative 3" television programme and book. In interviews, the band mentioned that they found "Alternative 3" too depressing so they came up with "Alternative 4", which is the album concept.
Recorded at the Windings Jan / Feb '98.
Mixed at Parkgate by Kit Woolven.
