For those whose never been there, track#7 includes a sample of the typical pedestrian crossing sound in Singapore, so "Walk Now..."

Please note that pressings made by PMDC Germany (e.g. this or this) differ from the UK pressing in the transition from track 5 "Impact (The Earth Is Burning)" into track 6 "Remind". On the UK pressing, "Remind" flows seamlessly into the previous track. On the PMDC pressing, the arpeggio sequence at the end of track 5 is slightly faded out at the end, and track 6 then suddenly starts with the "continuation" of that sequence. Discogs data does not reflect this.

Can anybody help? Is the album track "Halcyon On & On" a particular mix, basically the album version, of the 92 individual single release "Halcyon"?
Does HO&O appear on any other release but the 93 album?
Was it only produced / mixed by Orbital?

The track Remind has the classic Goa Trance sound and so for 1993, this is an important track in the history of Goa Trance.
You can call it Techno if you choose, but Remind definitely has the Goa Trance sound and vibe. Besides that track I also enjoyed the Track Walk now. Remind is the primary reason I will purchase this .

This is a very interesting and eclectic collection of tracks. The track Remind was on an Ollie wisdom Goa Trance mix tape from 1994. Much to like about this release even if this is not one's cup of tea.

They played recently in George Square in Glasgow and I go to knock two things off my bucket list,1.hearing them play 'Belfast' and 2.'Halcyon' live too.brilliant, memorable and proof that I'm not the only guy knocking on 40 who still wants to hear this live.there new album is great too.

Side B might go down as one of the greatest sequences in techno history

Fantastic single-minded melodic 4/4, one of the most consistent 90s techno LPs and an absolutely huge leap from their debut album. The lush/impact/remind continuous sequence was something that no electronic album had really successfully done up until at point - capture the club experience in an artist album.

Phenomenal pressing and a beautiful album. Haven't heard the original but this is probably pretty close, if not better.
