Excellent track. Unfortunately, they couldn't clear the sample from Aliens and had some voice actors re-record the dialogue in the official release. The voice actors (particiularly the male voice) are not very good, and unfortunately and the diaglogue looses some of that cool-factor. Being used to listening the 'original mix' (as opposed to the '97 revamp" in many sets (ltj, promised land etc), something just doesn't quite sit right with me about this version. there are some other minor edits (removal of crahes/hihats in the intro, and a repeating fx-type sound that is louder in the revamp, played throughout the whole track. Something is not quite right about it. None-the-less, it is a classic dnb tune but not the version most are used to.

This release extensively samples dialogue between "Ripley" and "Carter Burke" from one of the opening scenes of the film Aliens.

The track its-self is a dreamy Jungle track, lots of drifting pads and lacklustre drum programming, for a mixing record it is superb, but at nearly 10 minutes long it can get a tad boring.

The album from which this is taken "Future Retro" will dissapoint fans of this track, the styles on the album -poppy jungle and mid tempo vocal tracks do bear the producers' hallmarks but pale against this masterpiece.

I have heard at least 5 sets by LTJ Bukem that have featured this track (the original mix), though in general this record seems to be more popular with fans than DeeJays.

These smooth, deep-atmospheric soundwaves of Pete Parsons had samples from a BBC documentary with the participation of Mark Shorey and Varnia Lovinsky's vocals recorded at Scarlet Studios, with Wana Hewitt as engineer. This was just one of the evidences of how essential was the R&S label was - releasing excellent techno, electro, experimental, ambient and drum & bass tunes (between other genres)...
