There seems to be two different vinyl pressings of this out there: one with "Day break" as A2 track, one with "Final approach". "Day break" has featured on the promo of J Majik's "Slow Motion" album and is a menacing masterpiece without a steady beat, while "Final approach" is a jazzy, mellow number.
I have the vinyl version with "Final approach".
All CD versions I've heard had "Day break" pressed on the CD, although some booklets will say "Final approach".

Awesome album for all the usual reasons but mine has C side Lemon D and Hidden Agenda pressed the same on both sides? Mine doesn't have Pulp Fiction or Spectrum... Odd that, still at least I have In My Life as only came out on this album :)

That eerie sound in "The Nocturnal" from ~3:00 is incredible.
Overall, best tune here. Perfect example of "tunnel sound" of 90's.

One of my favourite LP's of all time! Tracks like In My Life, Made Up Sound, Spectrum, Down Under... Jungle mastery of the deeper kind!

My first piece of vinyl and still one of my favourites. For me breakbeats never sounded better than here.. The sound of these tunes is very mature, with that special feeling attached. They have something a miss a lot in newer jungle/drum&bass records..
