    Looks sick, would have liked can't u read but I suppose the above will do nicely!

    He did state it's still subject to change, but i'd imagine there will be little alteration now.

    I'm pretty sure Can U Read came out with the last batch of unreleased tunes a few years ago.

    Unless Can't U Read is another one?

    I hope the To Shape The Future Remix is the Amen mix from Optical's soundcloud.

    That would be ace but you'd assume if that were the case it'd be on disc 2 with the other unreleased stuff... we can hope though - I've heard Jubei play it out fairly recently and it's fucking huge through a rig

    There is another To Shape The Future remix that isn't the original or the Metal Box remix, nor the Amen one, and there is a clip of Dom playing it at a night in Belfast a few weeks back.

    Really excited about this, HOPE TO GOD they do vinyl, because not having What's the Difference and Sci-Fi Step Tech in a playable format will crush me.
