Wow! If you'll excuse the pun, really excellent PRODUCTION on this release! Levels all nice and sounds really crisp - ahead of it's time no question.

I find this offering from Nino is a decent 3 tracker,but compared to his 1st release The Future of Latin/The Gun it comes up short in quality.

Orbital were obviously fans of "World Champion" as they completely ripped off the breakdown from the middle of the track for the last tune on the In Sides album....

I think this is my favorite of all the Production House releases, even better than the ones in the Trip To The Moon series. Nino has composed three hardcore symphonies here, each worthy of a listen. All three pieces are quite long, around 8 minutes, and go through many different movements. Though many hardcore tracks do not adhere to the rigid format of a pop song or the repetitive structure of a techno track, Nino took the principle to the extreme here. Tracks take unpredictable turns going wherever Nino's mind wanders. Sometimes they lead to unlikely samples like the "If I Were A Rich Man" bit in "World Champion", sometimes to a rave breakdown. It makes for a very absorbing listening experience. As can be expected there are lots of chipmunks and a kind of sweet atmosphere that I can't describe but that can rarely be found outside Production House releases. I am not sure how well these tracks would work on a dancefloor (the dj would have to be careful to select the right part of the track and mix out quickly) but they work great as complete compositions to listen to at home - something that very few hardcore tracks achieve. One final note, the tracks are a little slow for the time - around 145 BPM - when everyone else was doing things around 160 BPM. This shows that either Nino didn't care about what other people were doing or that these tracks too a while to put together.
