    All tracks are great, but for me it's "Step Off". Hardcore stormer with a nice Belgian touch to it. Made to be played on a large system.

      One of the best uplifing hands in the air piano choons to ever be released! Still sounds as good in 2020 as it did back in 1992! If you ain't got this in your collection give ya head a wobble!!

          Feel So Real is in my opinion the epitome of the 1992 piano rave feel-good tune.

          It has to be one of my all time faves, if not THE all time favourite of this period.

          Slamming bassline, break beat drums, loads of rave-scene club noises and fills, the strings, the piano drops, the quality screaming vocals. I really do think it is a perfect production than encapsulates a whole space and time of the heady, rave days.

          Yeah, it is quite commercial (and some would say 'cheesy'), but it has a hard grit to it that provides a great balance and formulates it into a well rounded masterpiece. Ian Bland not only "got" the northern piano club scene, but ran with it like a champion.

          I keep hearing a slightly different mix of it being played by some DJ's (such as Stu Allan) which isn't on the album or the Frenzy mix. I don't know what it is or where it comes from, but I'd be interested in finding a copy.

          The B-side to this record also delivers some chunky material that always reminds me of the north-west scene of the time, Bowlers, etc. Hardcore, uplifting, well made. I've spent many a happy time listening to this record.
