Exclusive only to the UK CD release is a re-recording of "It's All Tears (Drown in This Love)" which was intended for the UK release of Razorblade Romance and a live DVD called Live at the Semifinal which has six live song performances from the Semifinal Club in Helsinki, Finland in April of 2003.

Another exclusive UK release was a 5 LP box set of the first four albums and the Wicked Game EP which the boxes were hand numbered to 666 copies. After the initial pressing ran out there were marked copies of 777 and then after those ran out the boxes were then sold blank.

Notes

  • The LP box set contains the British pressings for the four LP's while the EP is the original German pressing.
  • Underneath the CD jewel case tray on the German pressing you will notice a "Thank You!" printed on the inside of the CD with a Heartagram replacing the bottom dot of the exclamation.
  • The track listing on the album sleeve contains a few errors. "Join Me" is listed as the Razorblade Mix but this is the original mix found on Razorblade Romance. "Pretending" is listed as the Album Version but the solo is shortened, yet is not a radio edit or the Alternative mix.
  • "It's All Tears (Drown in This Love)" is exclusive to only the U.K. release. The song was originally another track re-recorded during the Razorblade Romance sessions along with "Wicked Game" and "Your Sweet 666" but wasn't didn't make the cut.
  • The 5 LP box set was originally hand numbered to 666 copies. The band received copies 1 through 5 and 666. Eventually after those ran out the boxes were numbered 777 until those ran out. Later, the boxes were left blank leading to many counterfeit boxes being sold online through markets and second-hand shops.
