Muslim chant sample at approximately 6:25 is from 1988 film 'Powaqqatsi'.

Interval – "Something's going to happen—something wonderful" is from 1984 film '2010' (sequel to '2001: A Space Odyssey').

the same synthesizer sound can be heard in
Robert Leiner ‎– Out Of Control
and
North Central Positronics ‎– Smell The Glove (1994)
both tracks apparently were released almost at the same time.

Obviously there is much more to this album than Aqua Viva... but I will always remember Derrick May playing this track at the best club in history, Pure in Edinburgh, around 1993. Visions of the Past still sounds fresher than much of his peers’ releases from this time- but I have to admit I play Aqua Viva at -8 these days....

i don't know why people call this a trance record. it is not a trance record at all really. it's just techno

anyways it is a masterpiece

"Out Of Control" is an absolute beauty which would be the perfect opener for any deep techno / electro set.

Brilliant IDM from the mid 90s. This album stands out amoungst quite a lot of release's in that it feels more cohesive and melodic not only that the sounds and textures are dark. Northern Dark is not a dance track and is as dark and foreboding as a Siberian winter evening. Robert records as Source which is straight ahead in yer face techno/acid this is a lighter side of his compositional skills meaning every track isnt at 120bpm! A long standing go to in my library but then again most of the early Apollo stuff is because the releases where high quality in aesthtics!

You think it'll ever be reissued? Or we will Spotify it for eternity?
