    The main riff on There Is No Law is taken (and rather cunningly adapted) from One O One Electric Dream – Activ' Rock.

              'There Is No Law' is my absolute favorite Messiah track. If ever there was a track which sums up the description of heavy metal hardcore, then this is it. Simple but heavy amen breaks, blatant vocal samples (The Cult, Jimi Hendrix, N.W.A. and the movie 'Class Of 1999'), rumbling basslines and an overwhelming, invigorating energy to the track. It may not be big or clever but bloody hell does it make you want to get your arse moving.

              The 'Rap Edit' is virtually the same, but with added vocals adding an extra layer of rabble-rousingness to the anarchic feel of the tune and goin on in a similar 'lawless' theme 'Is Anyone Still Alive (Anarchy Mix)' finishes of the EP with a crunching breakbeat, as mentioned by a previous reviewer, sampled from Moby's 'Go'. A stabbed to pieces mentasm riff provides a background hoover melody and is overlaid by a variety of samples.

              Messiah back in their heyday were never known to make a boring track, and all tunes featured on this vinyl area perfect example of diverse rhythms and eclectic sampling. And to top it off, this goes for pennies too.

                Remember this tune like it was yesterday, just picked up a new piece of vinyl to replace my old one. Nice. Real nice. Even though it's not in the spirit of rave, I always had a soft spot for the rap version, but what a mean tune!!

                The b side track sounds very like early Moby. It's also very very similar to the b side of temple of dreams, messiah's much bigger follow up from 1992.
