          An all-time favourite track of mine (Acid Rain) so I had to try this repress which is cheap at the moment. The sound quality is just about ok but as another comment below says the drums and percussion seem very quiet compared to the original pressing (and the version on YouTube) which is a shame as I was excited about getting my hands on a copy of this acid house classic. Not sure if I can recommend this but if its your only chance to get a copy then buy it. Also, if you've never heard the original press then definitely get this! What an outrageous track, best acid line ever!!

            So the general consensus is in line with what Jeffroye1 says about the 2017 re-press then ? It's lacking. Gutted.

              Heard this on Chris Forbes show in the UK in 88. Funky acid, sizzling percussion and slowed down crashing sounds like the waves. Hypnotic. Perfect!

                The Acid Rain version on this is my favorite Acid House song ever. So, I did a backflip when I saw the reissue online and bought it immediately. Once I played it my heart sank. The B-side, the one I bought it for, sounds like the top half of its range is gone. There is decent bass but the mid and treble sound like garbage. The percussion doesn't cut through at all, neither do the thunderous crashes in the back. Everything sounds weird and phased out, YouTube sounds oddly better. The Aside is like the inverse where it's all bright and a little lacking in the sub bass. There should have been way more effort put into the mastering. I hoped and dreamed forever for this release and now that I've got it I feel I need to save up $60-100 for an original.

                  Most desired reissue of the last decade for me.
                  I don't have an original copy to compare this to, but it sounds just fine.

                        Jaquarius- What can you say about this track.. Monstrous...terrifying..This absolutely tore the roof off the Hacienda back in the day.. would love to hear this dropped in somewhere like Pacha in IBZ on a sound system truly worthy of it.
                        The 303 was made for this track. House music never felt so sick.
