Opposing Stuck_In_1992's review from nearly a decade ago I will say that Angel Dust is the better track here. (Both tunes are excellent though)

Angel Dust is a bit of a weird one at first I will admit. The breakbeat used isn't the best i've heard by a long shot and the short repetitive piano melody throughout is especially odd. That being said it has grown on me a lot. A large portion of the track is layered with lush, fluttering pads which make you feel like you are drifting through a deep, colourful space nebula or something. Alongside, an enchanting female vocal echos what I think is "freeeeeeeee"?? ... Regardless of what it's saying it sounds good. (which is rare for me as I think soulful vocals are usually rather obnoxious in "intelligent" Jungle tracks.)

Stucks description of the flipside is essentially the same as what I would say. Overall this record is top stuff! Obscure, interesting and affordable too. :)

Space Walking aka Roller Coaster is one of the better rushy atmospheric tracks I've heard yet. It is unfortunate that my copy has a skip but it doesn't keep me from enjoying this track. For starters you've got your nice crunchy and compressed amen break. On top of that you've got your chipmonked "Hey yeah yeah" sample, and rising & falling bass which is just perfect for this type of groove. Then theres two beautiful breakdowns here, the first uses 808 State Pacific cords while the second uses cords which were used in the intro of Zero B's "Lock Up." Space Walking is a simple track yet it uses all the right elements to put a cheesy grin on your face. This is a perfect summertime anthem for all time.

The flip side Angel Dust is also an atmospheric amen track but its much darker and moodier. The track Angel Dust just doesn't resonate well with me and even the track title puts me off. Still its way better then the current flavors of DNB on offer now.

In closing, its all about Space Walking aka Roller Coaster. This release is a 5/5 just for that track alone.
