    One of those releases where the music looks better than it sounds, if you follow my lead. The white vinyl is pleasing to the eye, and gives a certain "white label", if not underground feel to it. Unfortunately, the remixes don't do the original much justice, and for the record, I wasn't that crazy about Schumacher's version to begin with.
    OK, the Ficken Pressure Cooker Mix is the one to avoid. It stretches the original "all night long" vocal through the entire track, and I mean literary the entire track. If I may add, it actually sounds like somebody was throwing up while trying to push those words out of his aching larynx, with little success though. As much as the production may be dope, the vocal ruins every little bit of hope and chance this one could have had...
    That leaves us with the B side, which does the only thing common sense suggests, ditching the vocal. It's a voxless version of the A side. Not that I dislike it, but in my opnion, it's not a track which can work very well on it own. Personally, due to the many effects, bleeps and blops, I like using it as an additional tool; scratching the hell out of it and so forth.
    Basically, as far as this release goes, I seriously don't know whether I should frame the vinyl and admire it, or just buy another copy for next to nothing and practice my scratching/cut-up abilitles with it. Nah, joking, if you were all over the original, then go for it, but personally, I could not be bothered to use this one as anything else but a third deck tune on standy by.
