Notes: (*****) There are no credits to (9) on the disc, but it is a reprise of (1). One can hardly hear (or at least tell) any performances by Howe or Horn, or by the other guests, but the whole record bears a strong resemblance to Trevor Horn's ZTT label sound (Art of Noise, Frankie Goes to Hollywood etc.).
