Different colour sleeve proofs exist . Certainly a yellow and a light blue one . Rham were deciding which looked best .

This version doesn't have voodoo ray, second release has this as it replaced the track entitled in the beginning.

The opening track has a hook that embedes itself in your head, and gets stuck like sweet, sticky chewing gum. The rest of the album follows suit, with that late-80s simple house sound, some acid stylings here and there, and it almost never faulters. highly recommended.

`in the beginning` is a nice stripped down acid trak, good in the mix.
Couple of good twisty acid numbers on this lp `radio active` & `escape 2`

This is such a good album...it should be made impossible to rate it anything other than a 5.
Not had a good listen to this for a few years now but for me it still sounds fresh and really well produced even 18 years after its release.
Every track is quality and provides an outstanding example of what British producers were doing with the house and acid sounds of the time.
The album covers all areas, with great Chicago style acid tracks like 'In The Beginning' and 'K9', really good UK deep house in the form of 'I Am Somebody' and 'Rhythm Of Life', the amazingly chilled 'Music Sweet Music' at about 98BPM and my favourite, the chilled acid sounds of 'Tranquility On Phobos'
Not all the music from this era sounds quite as good as it did at the time but this one for me will last forever.
Anyone who has never heard this album before, is in for a treat.
