Notes:

The first album from Depeche Mode. The first CD release of the album featured five bonus tracks. In 2006, the album was completely remastered, and released in two different formats (SACD + DVD, and LP in Europe, CD + DVD, and LP in North America). The SACD + DVD version featured the album in a remastered 5.1 surround sound presentation, on the SACD disc. The CD + DVD version featured the album in a remastered 5.1 surround sound presentation on the DVD disc. The CD and LP were remastered stereo audio. The US edition of the remastered CD was not a SACD. Only the European release was in SACD format. The US DVD is a standard DVD, not a specific DVD-Audio disc.

The version of New Life on the first editions of the USA editions of the album are the "Remix", and not the standard "Album Version" that is found on the original UK Mute pressing. The version of Just Can't Get Enough on the first editions of the USA editions of album are the "Schizo Mix", and not the "Album Version" that is found on the original UK Mute pressing.

Early promotional copies of the first USA edition LP had two clear "promo stickers" on the front cover, instead of the later practice of putting a gold promo stamp on the front cover.

The very first presssings of the first USA edition of the album did not have a UPC bar code on the cover. The album was issued before UPC codes were a necessity.
