Explorer is my favourite on this EP for the swinging kick-drum and hi-hat patterns alone. Flash is indeed not the best thing on here at all; still a great track though.

Once you've had enough of the novelty, military drumming of "Flash", you'll realise that "I Want To Leave My Body" is where the real acid house action is.

pure madness, became an instant classic for me first time i heard this record. "flash" is very nice exhibition of the typical next-door-rave-party, showcasing ballon-sucking, liquor-drinking and joint-smoking (so rather harmless, uh?) "bad little kiddies". whole text spoken like a guided tour for the probably very shocked parental parts of candy raver´s family.<br><br>"i want to leave my body" is a peak-time rocker as well, putting the portamento to a over-modulated edge of listening pleasure and testing your ear-drums to the limit. mantra-like vox that recommend out-of-body-experiences on top and a very nice acid-hook make this one of my favourite b-side-tracks.<br><br>
explorer is simply fun. a pure copy of the "flash"-track with some very nice shoutings over the top, introducing jones as "tarzan, lord of the jungle..." well...<br><br>
the "Untitled" track later became the renown "Fake and Phoney". Great one as well.<br><br>
so don´t bother with 2000 remixes, rereleases and lp-versions, try to hunt down the original release, since you´ll only find here some very nice additional trackwork featured alongside the mega hit "flash".
