i'd love to hear the original pre-master tracks as the 2x12 is too overdriven in an unpleasant/harsh way. the tracks have the potential but it never works at high volume as it's too heavy on the ears, i dont think it was the artists' inetntion.

A superb "unknown classic" on a label that is sadly underrated, this collection of tracks could only be bettered if another piece of vinyl had been added to include the extra tracks that featured on the CD version. Well, perhaps I can live without the dub attempt, "Naked I", but "Dig Deep" and "Train Of Thought" would have been most appreciated on the vinyl.

Thankfully, "Science Fact" did make it on - a tear jerker of a techno track with its lush, deep synth-led atmospherics. Like all the others here, full of the brilliant rolling TR-808 and TR-909 drum machine programming, almost subliminal electro beats, and fabulous deep and complex basslines that formed the signature of this superlative British production outfit.

"Landing Sight" is another track to look out for; throbbing bass, rattling hi-hats/claps, and twinkling synths. "Human Loop" continues the trend of powerful, emotive music that never wants to remain as one thing, always moving on. All wonderfully confusing and warming at the same time.

Perhaps the overall lack of "upfront" dancefloor material on this record has kept it out of DJs' record boxes over the years. That would be a shame as it's full of rhythm. If you own it, get it out and have a nice loud listen. It may not be bang bang bang, but that's the whole idea!
