Reissued in 1996 by Fierce and Peaceville with new cover art (a black background and a larger version of the center image) including "The Sexuality of Bereavement" and a bonus disc, Live at the Dynamo '95:
1. Your River [8:13]
2. A Sea to Suffer In [6:21]

4. The Forever People [4:52]

Released on picture disc vinyl with no sleeve in 1997, limited to 500 copies.

Reissued by Peaceville in 2001 and Soyuz in 2002, restoring the original cover art and track list.

Remastered and reissued in 2003 by Peaceville as a single disc digipak (using the black version of the cover) with four bonus tracks, including "The Sexuality of Bereavement" and Live at the Dynamo '95, excluding "Your Shameful Heaven" which appeared on that year's reissue of Turn Loose the Swans.

Reissued in 2010 by Peaceville in a super jewel box CD/DVD package, with entirely new cover art. The CD is the same as the 2003 reissue and the DVD is For Darkest Eyes.

A video was made for (a heavily edited version of) "The Cry of Mankind".
