"Like wow..."

Yeah, basically. B-side is whatever but THE A-SIDE. Oh wow the a-side. The sung vocals (wordless, thank you) will send chills down your spine. Well, the whole track will do that, honestly. There are some releases that are so good I don't really have words for them, they're best just experienced. The a-side is one such track.

And wow, I love the vocal sample. It reinforces dancefloor camaraderie, and I really love samples like that; the ones that cause you to look around at everyone else dancing with you and think to yourself 'yeah, they're talking about us.' Lots of love to be found here.

"...you wouldn't believe some of the kids that come in here. they're really spaced out!"

Masterpiece.end of.at age 38 (at the time of posting) I can't think of anything else that evokes the same level of emotion as this.
Musically there was alot going in at this time,and trance especially was (in my opinion) at it's peak.for me though,this and man with no name's 'sugar rush' represented the pinnacle of what was going on.
Psychedelic,euphoric,unyielding,emotive and indispensable.don't settle for the edited version on subsequent pressings,accept nothing less than the original 12 minute mix.

People seem to rate this solely because of "Point Zero". While "Point Zero" is a good but very overrated track. People forget how forgettable "I Need A Man" is. Yet almost every person rates it 5/5 only because of "Point Zero."

Point Zero's intro voice is taken from "Green Buddha - Psalm IV" (1993), slightly pitched.

I can agree with this track being the pinnacle of trance music. This or "Vernon's Wonderland" are the two tracks I might use to define the genre.

This is hands down the absolute pinnacle of trance music - it does not get any better than this. Timeless, mind blowing... wish there were more like this.

Nothing holds a candle to this riveting, driving trance crackin tune still perfect almost 17 years of age. Best if listened to on a huge speaker with bottom bass system. I brought this out in Texas at a rave and LIT IT UP along with Acid Phase by Emmanuel Top. Listen to the link to the right and that sums up my review. Sound quality minor or best, this is the best example of what real prog trance is. 30 other may be good only because of this gem here.

I nearly had a heart attack when i read the above review. This tune is pioneering the depths of progressive trance taking you on a journey whether you like it or not.... but you'd have to be some kind of weirdo to not enjoy this ride. It's powerful, enlightening, euphoric and an amazing catalyst for psychedelic mind expansion. No matter how well you know this journey it will always blow your mind! Hardly any other tune out there will take you anywhere near this place. Even with all the technology and advancements in music production, if this got released today for the first time it would be just as amazing.
