14. Laid to Waste
15. Master of Misrule

Re-released in 2002 with added bonus tracks "How Soon Is Now" (The Smiths cover) and "Fear".

3. True Belief (live) (4:24)
4. Pity the Sadness (live) (5:15)
5. As I Die (live) (3:40)
6. Weeping Words (demo) (3:51)
7. The Last Time (demo) (3:28)
8. Walk Away (3:25)
9. Laid to Waste (3:15)
