Unless you was there at the time of release of tracks like this, then you'll never understand the significance of such vinyl.

A work of art...for those that know.

I picked up some classic GLR stock (including this) in Promo sleeves from HMV at the end of '96 / early '97. Anyone know about these, whether they were original overstocks of first press or simply repress?

This tune gets me every time. As with previous comments, this was played all over the place, by everyone back in 93, and into 94 I have so many mix tapes, and went to so many events where it was mixed into everything that was in the realm of dnb/jungle and late hardcore (before 4 beat) at the time.

Love it when it builds to the break at 7:32, with minimal bongos and haunted vocals, the comes back in again, just awesome.

Well, to Mr Karhore, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but i think your comments are unfair, it may be boring or belong in the ashtray for you, but for some, the particular sound that resonates in 'Music' is very special, i was born in 86, so missed the early dance scene, my time was around the millennium, but this is kind of early 90's sound is intelligent & it certainly stirs a warm feeling! Modern post 2000 Amen jungle is just all to common! ...The sounds from the time of GLR etc. Has soul & depth, it take's you on a journey, as it should do. Some Amen jungle is all well & good, its rolling but really, if you take it apart, its just thrashing amens! Which just gets boring! Also, have a bit of respect for where the sounds you listen to today root from Bro!

Less a review, more a little trivia...

This original 12" version drops the drums out in the fade, whereas later compilations either fade early or don't conclude the track the same way despite being the same length (roughly), it just keeps going and fades out which isn't really a conclusion at all. The most recent vinyl version is like the compilation versions.

Both are too incredible to describe. "Enchanted" has a emotional feeling,i cant really talk about it,its too strong... Music is a classic which will never be forgotten by those who know it

A definite opinion splitter, even back then. Whilst I agree that Bukem began to become too insular as the scene began to fragment, (some of his bland post '93/'94 output certainly fits the accusations some have made here), the man was making tunes played by ALL the DJs on the scene at the time when 'Music' was released. Good Looking Records wasn't a 'sound' on it's own back then either; every (and i mean EVERY) DJ played his tracks in '93, regardless of their particular 'style'. This certainly isn't his best 12" ('Atlantis' or '19.5' get that award), but even then it is still leagues ahead of most of the sounds that flooded junglist ears at the time.

To quote a negative review below: "can't hear an amen break in there either to be honest." Sorry, but i hate this all too common line of thinking. Should a huge track such as this be instantly marked down because there is no tired old amen break in there?. Is there some kind of rule that there HAS to be an amen or it isn't classifiable as drum & bass/jungle/whatever? Those of us who have listened to this music from it's humble beginnings will remember when the amen was just one of MANY versatile breaks used within the scene, and not just the lazy producers crutch that it is today. If today's mausic makers began thinking outside the box like Bukem did back in '93, then perhaps the scene would come up with something fresh again....
