Disagree -

Paul's mix is the best version

The elucidating break and build - no words can surmise :)

I agree with F1end here; the original is the most interesting mix of this seminal track (though I do like the Gouryella and Matt Darey remixes). And though I thought the PVD mix was OK back in the day, it did strike me as the most formulaic and "stock" of the remixes.

The original, by contrast, is a blazing and all-too-short trance track that crosses the line between hard, psychedelic, and progressive. It's a downright masterpiece.

I have to disagree with the comment below.

The original Binary Finary mix is by far the superior tune.

Paul Van Dyk's mix lacks the complexity and true trance quality of the original. It is this mix that started the demise of 'proper' trance, as people imitated the PVD sound.

The original version was always a better than average tuneful high pitched trancer. However Paul Van Dyk's remix is nothing short of astonishing. He quite rightly pretty much so keeps the original as is, but adds a sense of toughness that was somewhat absent from the original. The attention though is placed firmly on the massive breakdown, and its subsequent surge to euphoric heaven. This remix became the basis for countless pale imitations.

Given the huge demand for the Paul Van Dyk remix, it was quite a brave decision by Positiva to place it as the second track on a two track side.
