Notes: On the original CD release, there is a credit "Themes and arrangement: Moraz", but it is unclear whether this refers to track (10) alone or the whole album. No separate credits are given for the live bonus tracks, but it's clearly Moraz on piano and synth and Bruford on drums and percussion.
