"Visual Attack" was one of the first rave tracks I've ever heard. It was on a CD that I had purchased called "Killer Techno". Its only been recent that I scored the Sonic pressing of this at a record show for 5 bucks. The original is the cut that I had always heard. Its got a steppy yet slow and groovy breakbeat thats full of industrial style percussion, whistles, and of course the mighty Alpha Juno hoover sound. Probably the most amusing feature of this tune is how it gives respect to the rave/club lighting designer who is truly an unsung hero.

The finest cut on this 12" is however the first Oh-Bonic mix. It takes the original and stutter edits the hell out of it which makes it sound a bit like Rabbit City 003 which is fantastic.

I see someone mentioned here that this track doesn't stand the test of time, well I disagree. If this was dropped in a nightclub today I'm certain it would have the same effect now as it did back in 92. That or the track would create a mosh pit like at a metal concert. Either way it sure gets your emotions raging.
