The 1999 release shifts the whole track list up one and inserts "Walk This Land (Edit)" as the first track, a remix of "Tough at the Top" by Origin Unknown at the end, and omits the song "Tribe" entirely. "Soundclash" is shortened by approximately 47 seconds and labelled as the "'99 Edit". "Retro" is replaced by the Vocal Edit, which was originally released on a single in 1997. It's approximately 1 minute and 34 seconds shorter than the 1998 album version. The track "Walk This Land (Smoking Barrel Mix)" is identical to the mix from the 1998 release. "Walk This Land (Edit)" was featured in the Guy Ritchie film "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels".
