A Classic acid house track, that just builds and builds all the way through, this was a huge tune back in its day, especially in the legendary Hacienda where it seemed to work so well with the ambience of the club. The A side starting off with a funky acid hook, slowly building with layer of percussion, additional acid lines and the male vocal, then about towards the end of the track a piano riff is introduced briefly. The Ivory mix is probably the one a prefer if I had to make a choice which starts with a really nice quality piano riff then introduces the bubbling acid line etc and the two inter weave throughout the track. Both mixes are really strong as this is such a great example of what acid house could sound like when it was done well. Really worth a listen if not grabbing a copy for yourself. 10/10

How does one combine brilliant deephouse with brilliant acid? By recording "Lack of love"! Most techno and acid fans hate it because it's too soft and most deephouse fans hate it because it is too hard. But I think it is one of the best records ever!
