Percussion on Water Drums is sampled from Up, Bustle & Out's Y Ahora Tu.

Voice at the beginning of Toucan from the 1992 movie 'Man Bites Dog'.

Regarding the album, nothing to add from myself except saying that it's one of the best trance albums ever.

SIMPLICITY IS GENIUS !! - Real music - are you happy thinking about yourself - this opens the real mind for everyone not for idiot followers

Forgotten classic - nothing much like this so much better than most current

Toucan and Water Drums are the best tracks ;)

This is a 5 star CD, but at the same time, I'm not sure I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't already heard it. The album, like much of early 90s trance, has not aged well. People might be shocked at this, but the production quality of this album is low. When this album was released, there were some far more robust and future-proof tracks being released by other producers. This album, on the other hand, is composed of extremely simple melodies, synths, samples, and basslines. It didn't need to be complicated when it was released over 15 years ago, but a 2012 relisten makes this album feel very bland.

Essential.

This is trance at its finest -- a masterpiece.

This one will stand up through the ages as a landmark and classic of trance.

Serene, blissful, triumphantly optimistic.

A hugely influential landmark ambient trance/house album from one of the best acts of the 90's. Almost all the tracks are gems in their own right and they haven't dated badly. Listen at high volume ;)

I've seen/heard 'Union Jack' play live on a Platipus Records tour - I rate this 5 out of 5, and would rate it higher if I could - they are one of the best.

There are a couple of songs here that have not dated well at all, but the majority are astounding reminders of how much we all enjoyed the mid-90s ambient techno scene. There is a lot of depth to this release, the techno is anything but mindless, the sub-bass and '3D' effects will have you running to save your speakers.

It's almost a poignant sound, gentle and textured which makes it a rare treasure indeed among its contemporaries. It's a dreadful shame the original version of the all-time classic 'Two Full Moons and a Trout' isn't included, but 'Water Drums', 'Lollipop Man', 'There will be no armageddon' and 'Toucan' make up for the loss. 5/5 for the beautiful sound and historical significance.
