One of the greatest electro tracks known to man- FACTOID. Both rap & instrumental will terminate and destroy most in their path. Relentless.

This is one of those perfect tracks, 100 percent all the way. After listening to it many times I wonder if Dave Storrs was influenced by Shannon's Let the music play from 1983 as the bassline sounds familiar, I bet those two would mix well together. Kid Frost is rappin about The Alien Wizard, this is actually Dave Storrs himself. And what about DJ Pebo, well he appears on Rough Cut also produced by Dave Storrs and thats him appearing on Kevin Sepe's 12" as DJ Pebo's Humanoid from 1986.

nowadays so-called MC's cannot touch this...they need to listen 2 it in order to learn how it's done! seriously this is the best electro-rap tune known 2 man, and it is way more futuristic than anything produced nowadays...the dmx beat is just flawless, the oberheim synth-pads are as purple as the 'tank rolling over skulls-scene' in terminator 1, the self-build vocoder is awesome, the laserflashes really cut through anything, and frost's rap is just way out there...for a 15-year old guy that he was...one of my all-time fav's...i wonder why a genius like dave storrs gave up producing stuff like this!

There are so many great electro moments from this period but if I had to name one track which epitomises it all it would be 'Terminator'. Listening to it today, it still sounds as fresh and tight as the day I bought it all those years ago. It stands head and shoulders above 90% of electro from the mid-80's and I would say only a handful of other tracks come close to it's genius (Mr. P, Synergy and Ervin German spring to mind.) Frost's rapping is tough, intelligent and original whilst the overall mood is dark and claustrophobic. Some of the electronics used, the fizzing, clicking industrial sounds, are way ahead of their time. One of the criticisms levelled at mid-80's rap is that of it was too corny but this track is seriously cool.
