Not a particularly exciting record in my opinion, just as boring as all those Martin Luther King Jr. sampling acid house records from a few years later. And to remark on a previous comment, this is not the first "sampling" record ever, electronic music has been sampling since the 1960s that I know of, if that what was meant by "sampling record". Steve Reich, Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, The Sugarhill Gang, hundreds more I don't care to type out or may even be aware of...

This is maybe the most essential moment for electronic dance music and truly masterpiece in itself. It's considered to be the first tune ever to use the DMX drum programming, and the first ever sampling record. There's everything in it - musical quality, technical innovation, message breaking the borders, excellent record cover... Top.
