Ed Rush, Optical and Fierces " Cutslo" is a good tune, however I've heard at least two versions of it so I presume there has been a remix but I don't know for sure. Both versions of Cutslo are both good, the darker version is better if you understand what I mean and the other which I heard on Rider's Prototype Years album was good but not as good as the other. Alien Girl is just a pure killer in every form, heavy tune.

I remember hearing "Alien girl" for the first time, I was at a mates house and s Bailey @ AWOL tape was playing in the back ground. Mid conversation I heard the drop and it literally lifted me out my seat!!!

Ed Rush and Optical were the masters of this genre. No one has made hard-edged drum and bass as good as them.

Alien Girl.... Still play it to this day. Still sounds great. Its a giant of a tune and definitely an all time favourite. Remember when DNB labels used to be this good?

This is dance music weaponised. Utter classic. Sequels are never usually better, but like Terminator 2 to Terminator, the Cutslo mix is what The Locust was looking for. Masterpiece. Oh, and Alien Girl is a KILLER, goes without saying.

Overrated average stuff. Talking about hardest techstep at those times, this is just a "joke" comparing to Current Value's cold-steel touch in his first long player "Frequency Hunt" which is phenomenal. Check it out.

Still have my copy. Was my absolute favorite. Nothing at the time was harder than this. Listened to it over and over again on my walkman.

To be honest, I bought this at the time because I was a label completist. It's pretty good and has stood the test of time, but I never really got that excited about it.
