Legendary tune remembered well and looking at the Credits you would not expect anything less.

I have a version of this with two A side labels (XXX mix) – is this rare or just crap labelling?

Whenever close my eyes listening this proper rave tune I feel it. 90s rules.

30 years old guy who heard this tune first time in his life when he was 12 years old.

For me, this song is so played out however I must remember that this very tune is what turned me on to U.K. Ardkore in the first place. If it wasn't for this my interest in dance music wouldn't have progressed passed Maurice This is Acid. Really the only bad thing about this record has nothing to do with Acen or the record itself. The problem is, this record got played in the United States way too much. Distribution for these records here was crap so American DJs played the hell out of whatever they could find and this record was always at the top of that small pile. It got rinsed at the Limelight, The Shelter, and at every single revival night after the fact. It's hard to love this record now since I heard it so often in the 90s. Though, if it wasn't for this one I wouldn't be here typing this review with the handle "stuck_in_1992" so I thank you Mr Razvi. Thank you for introducing me to this great dance music.

The non Beatles version of Optikonfusion! mix is highly better and more complete than the Beatles one, as with the late part of the track, after the omitted sample, is different with extra rave stabs and not so repetitive as the usual Beatles version. I was always hearing only the non Beatles version playing in radio stations back in time, and for my surprise i just discovered recently the Beatles version and realized that is the only one existed on this release. Where is the non Beatles version???? I can't find it and i need to buy it. Can anyone tell me where is it?

Acen tunes were some of the first hardcore tracks I listened to on vinyl as a 14 year old. The mans tacks were amazing and still are, a pure genius of his time.

Wicked track, first heard this on Rave generation 2. A lot different to other rave tunes at the time, dark but accessible. Love the breakdown with the chime-type sounds , anyone know where these are from?

Can someone please confirm the legend that the version without the "Here Comes The Sun" sample is labelled "(Optikonfision!)!!"?

I have never seen a label with "(Optikonfision!)!!". Typo or not.
