If this is not TOA's best vinyl, it's not far away...

740Mhz has a beautiful melody that blends perfectly with the powerfull kick and overall harshness of the sound. Never boring to listen to it.

Black lectroid is indeed somewhat creepy, but gets a bit boring sometimes. Above average for sure.

The Shocktower is overall a good track.


Oscillation Overthruster is my favourite TOA track ever... and I must say it's probably one of the best Hardcore tracks ever produced. The melody is astonishing and gives the ideia of something dark and transcendant, something lost in time, yet futuristic... the kick and patterns are amazing, and altough the track takes a while to "build up", it sure brings it down with fierce power... and leaves with a sense of something dark and distant hidden away...

If not for the other great tracks, Oscillation Overthruster is surely worth it. For me, it's simply brilliant!

I consider this as one of TOA/Hidden's best vinyls untill now! The atmospheres in the tracks are very dark, and fit perfectly within the tracks.

- 740Mhz is a very pounding track. Slow, but very powerfull.
- Black lectroid is a bit creepy, since some spooky sounds are used.
- The Shocktower has amazing kicks and patterns, and a very dark synth that comes in with the climax
- Oscillation Overthruster is my favourite on this vinyl. The track builds up very slow with relatively soft kicks and a drum n bass loop. It's backup up by dark synths. The climax starts a little late, but what a nice kick!

This vinyl is a must have for all TOA fans!
