"Acid Hardcore" is what we've come to expect from these two---pounding, lethal acid techno. The track is perhaps a shade faster, more frantic, and more evil than several of their other releases, but if you've been keeping up with UFO, then you basically know what you're getting here. Ruthless stuff, 5/5.

Ling Ling drops two tunes on the release, one serious and wicked and the other silly and yet 'avinit. First, we get "I Have a Dream," which, as you might guess, samples Martin Luther King, Jr., and is a fast, blazing affair from start to finish. Whew, this relentless acid techno workout reminds me of Ben 9mm's "On Acid Forever" and/or some of the fastest tunes in the SUF catalog ("Old School Rush," Kris Needs' remix of "And the Rabbit's Name Was," etc.). Brilliant track, 5/5.

Ling Ling also brings us "Whoop that Bassline," which samples Tag Team's "Whoomp There It Is" extensively. As such, it will surely get a laugh, but the piece has lots of acid, too, as well as an intense, pounding percussion scheme. It's a bit of a novelty, but don't overlook this one. 4/5.

Lastly, we get Mills' "Can You Dig This." This is typical Mills-style acid: marauding tempo, sharp acid lines, and endless energy. For whatever reason, it doesn't stand out to me quite as much as "Acid Freaks Fuck on This" or "Who Killed Acid Techno," but this is still very good. Solid 4/5.
