Nobody writes rolling techno tracks like Surgeon. A2 is the one for me, but A1 is not without its charms. Rolling loops that are sure to please any techno fan with a slightly less optimistic viewpoint.

Martin! Awesome comment man! :) I just say this one is a special Surgeon release if not the most special one.
Very deep percussion extremely well produced top notch tribal techno record.

The Surgeon reworks are heavy and dense cuts, with darkish atmospheres, thick rolling percussion and throbbing bass lines. The A1 number has this really creepy melody throughout, sneaking up and around through the background, as the potent bass line shoves out avalanches of reomrseless acoustic tidal waves.
The A2 tune, while not as opaque, is still bonafide quality material. It has a certain dosage of funk to it, with steady drive and onmarching percussion, with a few great breaks. Basically, great Surgeon stuff: a fine balance between straight up dance floor madness and interesting music to just glue your face to the speakers.
Mick Harris takes the other route, dropping a lenghthy, downtempoish composition, with almost dubby arrangements (deep bass line + slow and crunchy drum kicks), cool sound effects, ranging from static electricity to quiet xylophone keys getting touched by the wind... Many moods and many styles are incorporated in this track: it goes from ambient segments to parts filled with chopped and distorted vocal snippets and percussion lead pieces where the crawling yet powerful drum kick prevails over the rest.
Basically, if you enjoy Surgeon's magnum opus, "Force + Form", odds are more than likely you will enjoy this just as much. Just as the main album skillfully satisfied demanding serious listeners and pure club heads eager to hear more of Child's sharp dance floor aesthetics, this does just the same. The A side is more dance floor orientated, while simultaneously being much more than just club fodder, the B side is one competent composition, which covers quite a lot of musical territory in only eleven minutes. Great EP, go check!
