All tracks composed by Tony Martin, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler. Despite widespread rumours to the contrary, Eddie van Halen had nothing to do with the album.

A bonus track appears on the Japanese version, called "What's The Use (03:03)".

Interestingly, a nearly identical version of the "burning angel" image was featured on the Scorpions single "Send Me An Angel" three years earlier (1991).

Canadian version made in Canada and distributed by EMI Music Canada, Mississauga, ON, Canada; with catalog ID prefixed with "X2"; CD manufactured by Disque Americ

Recording information:

Recorded at Monnow Valley Studios, Wales
