If it starts to get bronzed on the text side, but not the playing side, your disc is in for Doom - it will cease to play properly, most often starting at the end of the last track, eating its way towards all of the disc. The sound will start to flutter, like a chewed cassette tape, if you know how that sounds. Curse of The early 90s MPO UK...

Into the fourth dimension (essenes in starlight) is definitely my favorite track on peel sessions. It has a nice consistent sensual rhythm to it. And it sounds very similar to music from Enigma's first album, MCMXC a.D. So, if you enjoyed Enigma's first album, you will love this song.

My copy is experiencing disc rot: the metal is bronzing all over, and there's some deterioration of the metal around the outer edge. No pinholes. Is this happening to all of these discs?
