I have the 2-disc Australian edition - I've always thought track 1.14 (ID Jay) cuts short (he seems to say Culture Be-). Plus 1.13 (ID Tania) sounds like it was recorded on a crappy cassette. Are other editions like this?

A classic album during the peak of the Eurodance era in 1993. Fenslau/Zweier created one of the best Rhythms and Synth Riffs coming out of this genre while Nosie Katzmann composed most of the material.

Track by Track Review

Serenity (Prolog): The opener is an atmospheric dark piece with filmscore samples (Fenslau used similar stuff lot of times in his Intros for his radio programm "HR3 Clubnight") and spoken words by Supreme. 4/5

Mr. Vain: Starts off straight away with that simple but genius Synth Riff that everyone knows and that carries this track pretty much. The raps in this track are really great and powerfull and the buildup towards the chorus is done in a great way with that Synth figure in the back. Overall it's just one of those songs where every piece fits to another. Probably the most successful single in the whole Eurodance genre. 5/5

Got To Get It: Similar to Mr. Vain in some aspects, but specially the Synth Riff(s) and the nicely sung vocals by Tania Evans make it a really great track on it's own. 4.5/5

World In Your Hands: Slow Downtempo track with an interesting arrangement and nice melodys, has a depressing note to it. Making a good Downtempo track usually separates the wheat from the chaff, and the producers showed their talent making this record. 4.5/5

Adelante!: Powerful track with spanish vocals from Supreme that got pitched down a lot. Never was one of my personal favorites as it tends to be a bit repetetive, still with a nice main melody. 3.5/5

Rocket To The Moon: A dance track that is stylistically similar to Mr. Vain and Got To Get It, sadly included are not very profound lyrics in the verse (Di Di Di Di...) that I really don't like. However it is again nicely produced with great rhythms and synths and the chorus isn't too bad either. 4/5

Anything: Probably my favorite on this album. It is fast, dark, powerfull, even hypnotic in a way and once again includes really great synth riffs that reminds you of Sleeper in Metropolis by Anne Clark and punchy basslines. On top you get a very trancey and spheric part in the middle section. Just a great production overall. 5/5

Key To Your Heart: Second Downtempo Track on this album, again with a rather dark note. The chord progression is a little odd on this one, but still makes it a great track with a nice atmosphere. 4/5

The Other Side Of Me: Very nice dance arrangement with a wistful sounding pad, melodious lines and house piano chords. One of the non-single highlights on the album. 4.5/5

The Hurt: Dreamy piano house track with a very high and heavenly singing Tania Evans. The chorus sounds really great, unfortunately Jay Supreme acts a little sluggish to me, which resulted in the weakest rap performance on the album. 4/5

Mother Earth: In the intro quite strong, again atmospheric and with a nice synth line. However then from instrumentation it goes a little different way, with strings and hoover sounds that are somewhat a bit incongruous to me. Chorus is good, but I think this track could have gone into a bit of a different direction. This leaves a decent dance number. 3.5/5

Serenity (Epilog): At the end of the album a slightly longer spherical trance instrumental piece with truly beautiful sounds. 4.5/5
