The pricing on this is silly - grab it and stick it in the racks. Bargain

I remember another CD release of this single. I saw it in Virgin Megastore in the UK in about 97/98. I don't remember the exact tracklisting, but it was extensive like the parts 1-5 and remixes combo. Herd Killing was also listed as a track though. Which I don't see in any of the releases above. The artwork was different to these releases too. It featured the WHE video set out as film strip. To the best of my recollection anyway. Wish I had bought it at the time. Can anyone else shed some light on this?

Worth noting that this track featured on the original Playstation game Wipeout 2 (2097) in 1996 way before it's official release and signalled the fact gaming really had grown up once and for all. Great game with a truly awesome soundtrack. Sonic eat your heart out.

A great collection and celebration of this fine single, "We Have Explosive" was my introductory song to the ever-changed world of FSOL, but this single could have been a little more structured (or varied) with its remixes than what it had to offer. All in all, I like 5/9 of the CD, which isn't bad.

The 1st and 9th tracks are essentially the way we've always heard the song, almost like a warning to all listeners of the potential explosion to occur. The Pt. 3 and Pt. 5 are very interesting, not borrowing a thing from the original track, and making very catchy melodies (Pt. 3) and stoned astronaut beats (Pt. 5) over ambience. The best remix IMO is the oil dub version, going into 3 separate movements with random sax and harmonica in one, jazzy ambience in the next, and breaks into the faster drums we love from the song in the last, all while featuring samples of the song sped up a tad.

This was a hard find, but its around. I recommend it to fans of the song entirely.

6 out of 5 if this would be possible. I was well surprised when this came out: My first contact to FSOL was of course Papua-New-Guinea in 1992 (I just found out later that Stakker humanoid was also from them) and I loved their stuff in 1992/1993 beeing very dancefloor friendly. After that they released quality music no question but more for the kind of "listening at home with your speakers on". This record now in 1997 is the bomb really: You can't put it in a certain category of style, it has serious breaks and broken beats, a distorted guitar sample and is so funky that you can shake your butt to. I love the ending of the Original Mix with that voice "it's a tough jungle out there" and then that kind of ambient accoustic guitar in the end. Weird stuff. The Kurtis Mantronik Remix is also excellent for the floor. An unexpected release for FSOL that hasn't lost anything of its raw energy in 2006.
