Without any shadow of doubt. Join In The Chant (Burn!) is an acid house / balearic classic. Too many parties in 88/89 where this one ravaged the dancefloor. Fond memories and personally my favourite Nitzer Ebb tune.
Judging from the mixes, too bad this, of all NE singles, remains their most uninspiring. The superb album version got far more respectful (mis)treatment with the bonus addition on the CD version of "That Total Age" ("Metal Mix" especially, which Terence Fixmer himself prefers and to much greater effect).
As for this very single, the song is just overstretched in three rather spineless, exploitable "bonus beats" versions per se, of which the edgier second (gold!) may seem the most interesting on first listen, but apart from the irresistible, stripped-to-the-bone mechanical beat, nothing in it really takes you any higher (well, if observed from the "sinister hip hop" angle, this mix actually does the original some justice). However, the opening version (burn!) while keeping some of its subversive charm, is tamed into a mild, utterly tedious dance number, which only starts to build towards the end (ironically this template remains a favourite, the band themselves using it for their live shows to the present day).
While some of the appeal remains - considering the true beast this should have been, with a proper b-side to it (like many other amazing singles of theirs), and remixes less lazy - it all sadly came down to mere bombast graphics over content.
