From looking at the sleeve credits, one might be inclined to think that the orb remix is the best pick. This is not true. The massey mix one of 808 state fame brings forth elements of dub, trance, and ethnic or world music into a neat experience. It is also slightly sycopated, minimalistic, and subtle.

The words "yo no naka no ten to chi ni sasageyou, ai wo" means 'in the universe, to the heavens and the earth, bestow, love.' It sounds like something out of the bible. The cave of life mix is okay and so is the extended wonga wig out 2. As you may infer from the naming, the music is weird, otherworldy, and mystical. Imagine rituals in outerspace, tribal aliens, and the creation of earth.
