Armageddon samples Kevin Saunderson's Tronikhouse 'Uptempo' . . . .

This in my opinion is one of the finest hardcore/house records of the 90's. The lyrics are spot on and have a meaning. The piano is catchy and uplifting. Ok it's not got the depth of other records but it's pure and a timeless classic.

I want a copy of the sound of Eden. Still sounds like the perfect summer time hardcore/house crossover anthem to this day. Its mellow and smooth and has catchy lyrics. One of 1991's finest records.

I read in a magazine that the guys from shades of rhythm were eating in a cafe and looking for somebody to sing vocals on a track and asked there waitress who said she would do it and that's apparently her on the track

Listening now in the cold light of day, you might criticise the slightly faltering lyrics and looped samples, but to the loved up crowds back in the summer of 1991 they captured perfectly the feel of the moment. This record would have everyone thowing their hands in the air, it was a club anthem like no other - a song that almost every raver seemed to love.

While Sound Of Eden is okay, it doesn't particularly stand out for me amongst any other "rave-lite" tunes from that era. The real beast on this EP is Armageddon, a screaming monster of a tune that truly causes your bones to shake. Take the stab from T99's Anasthasia, warp it to make it sound even more horrible, lay some massive breakbeats on top and you've got a tune that still causes people to stop what they're doing and get that "what the hell is THIS?!" look on their faces.

'The Sound Of Eden' is the finest piece of music to come out of the Rave scene in my opinion. It's a record that will truly stand the test of time because of it's undenying beauty and incredible euphoric feeling. A piece of dancefloor genius that makes guys as well as girls weep. Stunning Rave/House music that will light up any dancefloor, with a vocal and piano breakdowns to die for, backed perfectly by powerful but very funky beats. Fantastic!

If ever there was ever a choon that was made to get every single girl in the place on to the dancefloor, Sounds of Eden is it. You can't help but put your hands in the air, throw your head back, shut your eyes and sing like you've never sung before.

Awesome is a word that's over used these days but it's the only one I can think of to describe hearing this classic thro' a big powerful system.

People WILL know this massive tune instantly by the opening lines "here's another chance for you to dance with me - anymore". Originally released on promo way back in 1989 I belive and given a full (limited) release in 1991 on ZTT. Rumour has it that it will soon be re-issued (probably complete with a new dark 2-step remix) around APRIL/MAY 2002. If it does appear on the shelves of the underground record shops this year - expect it to outsell almost everthing else. It is still a massive tune and older (and wiser) DJ's are still giving it space in their boxes.
