"Applejam" is top dog on this release for me. It's energetic, acidic, and a bit mischievous. As the track progresses, it reminds me of a train gathering speed as it starts going downhill, and by the end, it's careening well off the tracks, blazing its own path. HAVE SOME.

"Bobby's Anorak" is fantastic, too, though for me, not on the same tier as "Applejam." Still, this has bubbly, rolling, and occasionally SCREAMING acid lines throughout. You can really hear the Geezer's influence on this one, though it also harkens to much of Rowland's discography, too. Bottom line, this would be the main attraction on many other records, but "Applejam" has more energy, and I tend to like things with lots of pace and energy.

And as Neurodynamo says, pick this up while you can; it's more than worth it.

This is also a great early acid Hive release.

4 of the best acid techno artists !

For some stupid reason I didn't buy it when it was available which I tend to do a lot ! Now pricey and HTF but well worth it if you've got the dosh but not worth the high price at all:)

What a mistake you techno tit !
