Both the limited edition Slipcase version and digipak edition contained four bonus tracks (featured on a second CD on certain copies):
11. Lunar Lament (04:04)
12. Wicked Witch (slow version) (03:57)
13. Spatial Architects (05:46)
14. Beneath These Waves (radio edit) (03:40)

It is believed by some that this is a concept album based on Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series. However, only a few of the songs relate to the series and there is no overall concept to the album.

The 12" record version of 'Touched by the Crimson King' has two bonustracks:
11. "Lunar Lament" (04:04)
12. "Spatial Architects" (05:46)
