Notes:

The original vinyl editions have a shorter version of "Personal Jesus".

For the original 1990 UK release, there was a promotional sampler 12" single, and a promotional box. The box was a 12" by 12" box set, which contained vinyl, cassette and CD pressings of the album.

For this UK release, a variety of other short-lived formats were released, including DCC (digital compact cassette) and Mini-Disc.

There are a few uncredited instrumental tracks ("interludes") on the album. Between "Enjoy The Silence" and "Policy Of Truth", the instrumental track is called "Interlude #2 - Crucified". The second interlude on the album is the track between "Blue Dress" and "Clean". It is called "Interlude #3". Interlude #1 ("Mission Impossible") is on "Music For The Masses", and Interlude #4 is on "Songs Of Faith And Devotion".

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.
