      Nowadays I prefer listening to the Instrumental.

      But the vocal was an absolute anthem pretty much everywhere. From the Balearic crew to the Acid House teds to the New Beat, EBM and early Techno massive. I now will more likely choose the Instrumental because I can't quite readily take the vocal chanting as often anymore. This record as a whole used to work the crowd into an absolute frenzy. I saw people who were previously soul boys and girls absolutely freak out to this.

      Tip: If one already likes this and in the very unlikely event have never heard the Album version, they'll need to get on the case sharpish. The alternative Electro styled drum beat groove feels even more hard hitting than the well known four to the floor versions.

          Without any shadow of doubt. Join In The Chant (Burn!) is an acid house / balearic classic. Too many parties in 88/89 where this one ravaged the dancefloor. Fond memories and personally my favourite Nitzer Ebb tune.

            Judging from the mixes, too bad this, of all NE singles, remains their most uninspiring. The superb album version got far more respectful (mis)treatment with the bonus addition on the CD version of "That Total Age" ("Metal Mix" especially, which Terence Fixmer himself prefers and to much greater effect).

            As for this very single, the song is just overstretched in three rather spineless, exploitable "bonus beats" versions per se, of which the edgier second (gold!) may seem the most interesting on first listen, but apart from the irresistible, stripped-to-the-bone mechanical beat, nothing in it really takes you any higher (well, if observed from the "sinister hip hop" angle, this mix actually does the original some justice). However, the opening version (burn!) while keeping some of its subversive charm, is tamed into a mild, utterly tedious dance number, which only starts to build towards the end (ironically this template remains a favourite, the band themselves using it for their live shows to the present day).

            While some of the appeal remains - considering the true beast this should have been, with a proper b-side to it (like many other amazing singles of theirs), and remixes less lazy - it all sadly came down to mere bombast graphics over content.

            But then again, the choice is yours.

              This is the business!

              This became a HUGE Balearic anthem - which is strange as this has quite an aggressive sound to it, not what you would associate with the Ibizan (sp?) vibe of 88/90.

              This is now a staple tune for all those horrendous electroca$h clubs that are springing up all over the joint.

              The 'Join In The Chant (Lies! - Instrumental)' was a big Wizard tune on his Detroit radio show.
