Side A has an extra "hidden" track (not mentioned on the label) which features a chopped-up dutch radio interview that Robin "Jaydee" Albers did with Joost De Lijser about the (lack of) popularity of Detroit techno in Holland and some added Dmitri Shostakovich strings. Unfortunately only Dutch speaking people understand the joke...
Track "Just In Time" has been inspired by "My Mine's Hypnotic Tango".

In 1992-4 Djax could do no wrong. This release is amazingly good. It absorbs you and takes you away on a trip, without any drugs, and if you are on drugs, look out. I can’t decide which I like best, any, all. My only complaint is that it didn’t get a double record treatment and perhaps that he didn’t do more under this name.

Ouch, I simply love this one. This is the best of what 1994 has to offer from the acid techno side : it even goes a bit toward some hypnotic acid, trancey in a marvellous way. The main track (Just In Time) is a variation on My Mind's "Hypnotic Tango" synth line, but unlike what Carl Craig did with 69, it really gets transformed by the way the acid lines evolves around it. Even the more fast-paced track here (like Handbook Of Plastic Surgery) have a very deep techno and ambient feel that makes them unique.
Definitely the kind of tracks that wraps around you and takes you on a sonic travel. 5 stars.
