Introspective is one of the Eye Q 90's trance greats that was forgotten and eclipsed by the more club Orange chocolate biscuit Theme.

So champion Introspective all the way - Beautiful !

Do though check out legend Blu Peter's remix of The Orange Theme on the UK Eye Q label. Nice bit of acid towards the end gotta have that :)

One of the best classical techno-trance themes. My guess is that it is techno-trance at its best. Unforgettable, but then again we must remember that the original melody was created by the genious Purcell, and beautifully worked by Wendy Carlos on the "Clockwork Orange" famous theme.

I've always considered "The Orange Theme" a turd in Eye Q's catalogue. It's crude, in-your-face and unsophisticated, and reeks of UK superclubs and "Now that's what I call trance" compilations.

But the flip side of this original release is magnificent. See, "Introspective" is just that - a pensive, poignant track imbued with the kind of warm melancholy often heard in the best early 90's trance. You needn't waste your time on the overplayed A side - this is the real deal. Beautiful.

It seems so obvious when you realise it. "Orange Theme" is based on the theme music for the movie "The Clockwork Orange" composed by Wendy Carlos.
