Piña is my favorite track. Atmosphrique is too hard to dance too. Low energy, odd bass rhythm, it lurches forward in an odd way. Piña on the other hand has beautiful melodies and plucking of that guitar sample is so perfect!

"The Gambler." Damn, that's funny! But I know exactly what you're saying. "Atmosphrique" is a great track, but it's not something that most people will dance to if you drop it in the middle of a set. Good to play on the radio, or bounce around to in your bedroom, or just enjoy for what it is, but a guaranteed floor-killer; sort of like dropping "Apathy" by 1000 Homo DJs at your cousin's wedding.

i love all 3 tracks on this vinyl and i rated it a 5, but there is one thing i'd like to point out. i djed at a party a few weeks back where almost everyone danced all night. the only time that the entire dancefloor cleared was when i dropped atmosphrique. i've never seen anything like it. you'd think that i dropped "the gambler" by kenny rogers for the reaction. and this was a crowd that was into a lot of diverse stuff like old school hip-hop, 70s soul, drum n bass, nu-deep house and much more.

my god, this track is sooo sick! metro area's "atmosphere" is beyond incredible! the ideal of someone twiddling away and creating this magnificent gem of a track, is truly mind boggling. this will sound hot in 2027 as easily as it wouldve in 1977, easily. its a shame that it is such hell to find a copy of this. but thats the nature of the game, i guess?! this shit is too hot. so hot, that i have to listen to it over and over and over....
like i said, environ is a label with incredible depth, texure and creative force. this track epitomizes everything wonderful about the label. i cant get enough, ever!
