The Dream Complete

Aussie band UNITOPIA may have ceased to exist but there’s been movement towards a possible resurrection of their creative force recently. Its first fruit will be an expanded reissue of “More Than A Dream”: the ensemble’s debut album was released in 2005, and now, twelve years down the line, this record’s deluxe 3CD edition is scheduled to hit the shelves on October 23rd. Subtitled “The Dream Complete” and remastered by Sean Timms and Matt Williams, the collection not only features a riveting artwork by Ed Unitsky, but also a great deal of additional material giving it all a fresh context.

There’s not a lot of previously unreleased music, yet what’s been known before is presented in new light, with remixes and re-workings fleshing out the album’s original experience.

The tracklist for the reissue looks like this:
