All three tracks on this classic release are great, though each gives you something a bit different.

First, we have "Running Man," which I remember first hearing on "The Sound of Acid Core Vol. 1" back in the day. It starts with an atmospheric yet minimal intro, pads quickly joined by hats, claps, and a solid kick. The first time I heard it, my reaction was something like, "OK, not bad, but not much there".... and then WHOOSH, in kicks the acid bassline right around the one-minute mark, and you're well and truly on your way. Indeed, the main, churning acid line acts as a sort of motor/engine for the track, propelling it along with considerable gusto. It ducks out of the track for a stripped-down, minimal segment, but then returns in all its glory around 4:00. Fantastic, 5/5.

"Axis" also starts with some atmospheric melody, though that is quickly supplemented by a mechanical synth and a few odd noises here and there. When the kick finally drops, you realize this track is full of energy---a real galloping number. During the first breakdown, a more lively synth begins to fire away, which culminates in a very nice drop. However, for me, the track really begins to cook around 3:15, when some delicious acid work arrives, layered over the mechanical synths. By 4:00, wow, the acid fireworks are just brilliant. And heck, there's still one more major drop left in the track at that point. 5/5 yet again.

Finally, we get "Triple-A," perhaps third tier on this release but still a top track in its own right. It's more austere than the other two pieces on the vinyl, and features a prominent "honking" synth that reminds me of a digital goose or something (a bit odd, I know, but just listen to it). This is a great middle-of-the-set filler sort of track, one you could use to set up a monster tune. 4/5.

May the Noom moon forever rise!
