My mate told me, that he was after this release (and the not the legendary Ray Keith Remix). Gob smacked to see how much it is going for nowadays. He will have to get his hands out of his packets to get a copy. He ain't having mine which i brought early '94.
I'm a fan of this original mix as well, over the Ray Keith remix. The remix is good, but possibly a little too clinical for me. I always go back to this version. The breakdown is an absolute monster - dark and uplifting at the same time.
The original mix is far superior in every way , (the intro , break edits , weight line , breakdown , EVERYTHING !) ,the tune(especially on a big system) takes the listener on a journey of epic proportions , it catches the essence of 93 perfectly but shines a light of what's to come in 94 , from those super dark and haunting strings on the intro which send shivers up the spine ( for me personally it sets the scene in my mind of an unrelenting force of nature coming to cause complete devastation) , then incomes the amens and snares, and it rolls out in a lead heavy and relentless fashion, break patterns kill me in this track and are excellent throughout , then to top it all off the breakdown( one of my all time favourites is amazing rushy and uplifting pads and vocals to contrast the sinister, jagged edge type of style the rest of the tune takes , the vocal's "keep coming" ... "so strong" "and strings are from a soul track by Innocence, entitled Natural Thing ,the breakdown is a pure hands in the air moment followed by the ugre to wall slap and bust crazy shapes as its back to darkness and choppin drums are taken up a notch on the second drop , it rolls out to 6 min mark before it breaks down for pure pads and vocals till the end , really is tune a can listen to from edge to middle over and over again even after all these years .. track is timeless to me...... the remix is a good tune but has no place so much as being uttered in the same breath as this version ,the difference really is like night and day , I appreciate everyone is entitled to their own opinion , but anyone who thinks the remix is the better tune of the two , is not only wrong , but deserves nothing less than to be knocked clean out for suggesting such nonsense .
While I agree with all the previous comments and I love this tune, this original version and its beat programming is a little too simple for me. (Indicative of Mayhem in all honesty). After just one listen to to the Ray Keith remix (Face 102R) and you will hear a more solid piece of darkside with a 'real' bassline and outstanding beat construction. It was played more by the top dj's for a long time. Ray Keith was at the top of field in 93/94 no-one could rival him.
