A truly great record. It still baffles me, every four years, why this STILL is not the world cup theme on telly. It just sounds exactly like the title suggests. It is basically a huge horn riff, but the the bombastic overall effect belies a very neat arrangement. It has a fine guitar solo, and a gorgeous synth vox interlude.
The b-side 'Philip Glass' suggests where the composers were taking some of their inspiration at this time. It is a synth exploration of the minimal, trance like beauty of the famous composer's work, segued back into a reprise of the a-side.
This record is a glimpse into electronic studio music in the UK in the time before techno changed everything.
