If you like that piano-based Dutch happy hardcore sound with straight beats, than this will be one of your favourite albums in your hardcore collection.
Most of the songs on this album were top hits of the style back in the days.

After studying the booklet I've learned that all those piano anthems were co-written by Addy van der Zwan, Jan Voermans and Koen Groeneveld - the famous DJs who have later formed the legendary progressive house project Klubbheads. And all Paul Elstak solo tracks are far not as good. So does this mean that the "Klubbheads" guys were the main people responsible for those wonderful piano tracks ?

I ask this question because most of Paul Elstak tracks released after this album (without co-production of "Klubbheads" guys) are just hard Gabba tracks without any nice piano melodies. So does this mean that in this project the "Klubbheads" guys were "the piano-men" while Paul was just a "drummer" ?
