The American Edition consists of only the single disc. The American Edition can be identified from the "Made in the U.S. by Warner Music Manufacturing Inc." in the centre bottom of the back of the CD jewel case and the European Edition has "Made in Germany by Warner Music Manufacturing Europe" in the same place.
