Track listing

The original UK LP had nine tracks. The US LP contained ten tracks, deleting one track from the UK LP ("Blacks/Radio") and adding two others ("Susan's Strange" and "Soap Commercial"), and changing the order of the tracks significantly. The CD reissue contains 13 tracks, beginning with the original nine UK LP tracks (programmed in their original order), then adding the two additional tracks from the US LP release, plus a version of "Mack the Knife" and a demo of the album track "Flowers".

All songs were written and arranged by The Psychedelic Furs, with words by Butler Rep, and produced by Steve Lillywhite, except where noted.
