Not the greatest old skool tune out there, but is popular for a reason (Everyones tastes differ of course). Repress now available for a fraction of the original, full artwork sleeve to boot.

I agree with Kardhore's review. Overrated release, with 2 uninspired tunes, with running noises, running beats, yet very pompous and boring with minimal ideas. The motivation here was to make something impressive full of tricks and not something good. Music have to be for the music and not for show off.

Not sure why the reviews here slate the tune in such detail, classic and sorted in my personal opinion and now nicely remastered for digital.

I love this tune more every time i hear it. The first 3mins are absolute gold especially the drop at 1.23, sends shivers down the spine and gives me visions of true raving '92 style, something i can only wish i was old enough to experience! Proper oldskool hardcore tracks such as this have a deep subliminal way of putting their message across, something severely lacking in a lot of today's ultra technical productions.

My only criticism of this track is that it seems to lose its way a bit around the 3min mark - it would certainly be one that i'd mix out of quite early. I think cutting out 2.56 - 4.08 and instead giving it a longer outtro would benefit the tune greatly. Anyone fancy doing a cheeky white label edit?? ;-)

Another hardcore track with an overated classic status. I bought this tune on the strength of hearing it purely from soundfiles,but once I got this tune on vinyl and spun it a few times,my interest soon waned. The track never really builds into anything significant,its just that whirring motif over and over again,this record is less a complete track,more just one idea,one hook,and not a good one at that. Some tracks with just one hook work well,but they have to be kept really simple,like Kevin saundersons KMS work. The track finally lets rip in the mid section breakdown, 'kiss another high hat' or some such annoying sample,but the excitement doesn't last long,before resuming to that whirring motif that is pretty much what we get on the b-side aswell. This outfit were obviously short on ideas! For how do to simple one motif tracks like this refer to Danny Breaks,'Higher',a track which he relegated to the flip of his classic first release, 'Far out'.
