This is probably one of favorite singles ever to be released and the best that Skinny Puppy ever did, simply because of the variety of tracks they give you.
The Spasmolytic (Remix) is amazing. You get a completely different version here, unlike the Worlock and Tin Omen 'remixes'. A true industrial track and even adding some lyrics from Rash Reflection at the end is brilliant.
The Shore Line Poison Remix is basically a harsher version of the original. Nothing special added but I like this version better.
Harsh Stone White (Live In Denver) is one of the best live takes they've recorded. cEvin Key on the drums sounds amazing and the track pulls off a better feel than the original studio version.
The Walking On Ice track is a great epic. Three songs mixed into one and the track on Brap Vol.4 'All Eyes' is the 2nd track you hear on this 12-minute journey.

Realised in late -90. The 12" version of spasmolytic regards as the hardest industrial track ever made. Close to hell with dark visions.Truly a experimental production.
And after all these years it´s still so far out that I have not heard nothing like it.
