Such a forward thinking record! "Eyes On The Horizon" was made as early as September/October of 1992. Think about that! The only comparable style tune at that time was Demon's Theme. Just unthinkably brilliant and ahead of its time.

I just listened to this again for the first time in 20 years, and I am now (once again) a drooling ecstatic wreck. This is unbelievable creative skill and sound quality. Respect.

Everyone has said it already! Eyes on the horizon is light years ahead for me... I can't think of a single tune around at that time that was anything like this maybe that's why it was relegated to the 2nd track on the EP... Just so as not to freak people out with its off kilter beats and structure ...lol A truly inspirational piece of work!

One of the most essential and original hardcore/breakbeat records of all times. As jungleteknow said already this record and some bukem works like "Demon´s Theme","Bookworm" or "Listen" were way ahead of its time. My personal favorites are "The Strength (Mental Rapids)" & "Eyes On The Horizon". Both tracks are absolute killer breakbeat stompers which defined and formed the hardcore/jungle sound of the following years. Haunting essential breakbeat samples with deep strings and ambient sounds. Especially that deep floating bell sound in the track "The Strenght" which modifies 2 times or more during the track really hits me. Quality stuff!! In my opinion there was a lot of whack hardcore stuff in ´92 with cheesy production structures but this one is really outstanding. I don´t know who was first with the ambient jungle/hardcore sound but Bukem and Body Snatch are definitely both true pioneers. Respect!

This record was way ahead of it's time, just like Bodysnatch's 'Euphony', and LTJ Bukem's '91/'92 workings; paving the way for a more bassline orientated drum & bass / jungle sound of '93/'94. 'The Strength (Mental Rapids)' is the standout tune on this by far and the bassline is an absolute killer! On the flip, 'Eyes on the Horizon' is also a great tune with it's tight production, but 'Revenge of the Punter' is a bit of let down.
