CD1 is an unmixed album. CD2 contains a bonus mix. The tracklist for disc 1 is printed on the back of the release, while the tracklist for disc 2 is printed on the disc itself. Hood makes with the mixed CD a perfect bonus to showcase his definition of minimalism and what Minimal Nation stands for. Are included in this 3 decks mix much more than the listed contents. Tracks from all the existing versions, ranging from the 3x12 EP version on M-Plant to the old 2x12 EP version on M-Plant (Grey Matter was named Grey Move) and including also tracks from the Axis version (The Pace, Acrylic), are blended all together, sometimes even twice with double copies
