In my opinion, one of FLA's best tracks.
Old-Skool EBM/Industrial Dance. Great rhythm.
I have 2 versions of this CD single (or EP)
I have a domestic version that has 2 versions of The Blade (Technohead and...Blindfold?) and 2 B-sides. Much later, I found the import version that has the extra tracks.
I suppose Mr. Leeb couldn't keep doing this stuff forever (although he did repeat himself quite a bit anyway), but to go from this to Delerium's pop pabulum? Ugh! How the mighty have fallen! (and yes, I know Delerium put out some cool, dark, atmospheric stuff before they went all Enigma/Deep Foresty)
