    Got a copy with the AA label on both sides of the record - otherwise, it's the same as the regular release with A side and AA side pressed (but with the AA side label on both sides).

      Legendary tune remembered well and looking at the Credits you would not expect anything less.

        For me, this song is so played out however I must remember that this very tune is what turned me on to U.K. Ardkore in the first place. If it wasn't for this my interest in dance music wouldn't have progressed passed Maurice This is Acid. Really the only bad thing about this record has nothing to do with Acen or the record itself. The problem is, this record got played in the United States way too much. Distribution for these records here was crap so American DJs played the hell out of whatever they could find and this record was always at the top of that small pile. It got rinsed at the Limelight, The Shelter, and at every single revival night after the fact. It's hard to love this record now since I heard it so often in the 90s. Though, if it wasn't for this one I wouldn't be here typing this review with the handle "stuck_in_1992" so I thank you Mr Razvi. Thank you for introducing me to this great dance music.

          The non Beatles version of Optikonfusion! mix is highly better and more complete than the Beatles one, as with the late part of the track, after the omitted sample, is different with extra rave stabs and not so repetitive as the usual Beatles version. I was always hearing only the non Beatles version playing in radio stations back in time, and for my surprise i just discovered recently the Beatles version and realized that is the only one existed on this release. Where is the non Beatles version???? I can't find it and i need to buy it. Can anyone tell me where is it?

            Can someone please confirm the legend that the version without the "Here Comes The Sun" sample is labelled "(Optikonfision!)!!"?

            I have never seen a label with "(Optikonfision!)!!". Typo or not.

              Both top remixes, I was lucky enough to pick up the one with the Harrison sample for a couple of quid. The Sequel is not often played, but it should be; extremely creepy and sinister in places, although the bass can be a little heavy and drown certain parts out.

                    Not much really to say about this tune, I heard this tune on a casette tape first time round. Since then it has always been my fav Acen tune, the samples are spot on, both tunes are quality.

                      Both remixes contain some nice soothing\melodic moments. The one in 'Remix I' is built upon a sample from 'Here Comes the Sun' song by The Beatles and features George Harrison singing and playing acoustic guitar. Don't know where the samples for the one in 'Remix II' come from, but for some reason it reminds me of DJ Shadow's 'Midnight In A Perfect World' track.
                      It's a pity those melodic parts are so short.

                      As for the Rave, the beats are cool on both sides, but the bass -( The bassline on both remixes is very simple and uncreative. Very disappointing.

                      The bass in the second half of "Remix II (The Sequel)" is total crap! It nearly ruins a whole song!
