About Each Track

Under The Knife - Greek copy A5-box (front)
  • Keep The Faith is a song by The God Squad with samples of Phantom.
  • Floored is a song by The God Squad with samples of Floorshow.
  • This Corrosion lasts an extra 20 seconds or so than the Floodland version, possibly just because it fades out completely.
    Whereas the LP version passes into the intro of Flood II, this version simply dissolves into the fade out.
  • Dominion/Ozymandias is a remix of Dominion. The drums have a slightly different sound (not too noticeable unless you compare it directly with the LP version). At 00:23, the music stops (while the drums carry on), and the music restarts at 00:37. The drums in the chorus give the extra loud note after "Dominion!" as in the single version. At 05:25, the song suddenly reverses in mid-word to Ozymandias and at 05:43, Sandstorm is mixed in. At 06:29, Ozymandias stops, and Sandstorm finishes the song.
  • More (DJ Edit) is a shortened version of More.
  • More (Radio Edit 1993) is a different sounding, severely remixed version of More, shortend to radio-friendly 3 minutes.
  • Temple Of Love 1992 (DJ Edit) is the 7" mix.
  • Under The Gun (DJ Edit) is a shortened version, starting at the second verse.
  • More (Groove Mix 1993) is an 11 minute long dance version of More.
