A bona-fide anthem and probably one of THE hardcore/hardtrance tracks of the mid nineties, firmly set as an anthem both for me and for the event I ran (uprising, Sheffield). Robin confirmed the incorrect assignation of the stand-out track on here; It is neither LC or Powerjam, but in fact Eclypse that was mis-labelled. A 5/5 rating no question!

the ultimate hardtrance tune surpassing gates of hell/forgotten moments and as good as flowers of intelligence in regard to hardcorehardtrance tunes...all spun by the producer/clarkee etc...one of the most memorable tunes of the technodrome mid 90's era.....................proper hardcorehardtrance in the place circa 1996..............................

According to R. Wagner himself when he was active on discogs a few years ago:
'The funny thing of this gabber"hit" is that the names were switched...Listen Carefully isnt even on the record and the name of "LC" was originally Eclipse... Hehe...'

Oh my god!

If only the other gabber producers back in the day took influence from the Hardtrance scene like this guy did then we'd have blinding selection of hardtrance infused gabber like B2 on this EP. Such was the impact of this tune when it was first played, several of the DJs in the UK lucky enough to get a test press covered over the artists name so the observant/wannabe ravers/DJs could not see who it was produced by. Just so they could keep it exclusive that bit longer.

A legendary tune.

The B2 track 'Listen Carefully' is the reason why a fair number of people have this on their wantslist. A tune with a classical riff in the breakdown which sends everyone nuts. Like 'Jiiieeehaa' or 'Name of the DJ' this is one track a DJ can whip out to get people going.
