are you referring to the ultra rare original press, or the reissue?

i would absolutely love a double LP of that! essential technohouse / rave history!
posted a comment on The Human League - In Darkness. about 1 month ago
can anybody say something about the sound quality of the LP? because there are files online but they are terrible, like a brutally overblown denoiser that removed 90% of the sound together with the noise,
resulting in a sound similar to a 32k mp3. is... See full review

the information in the notes above is wrong, "extended version" on this pressing and "extended mix" on the 1987 pressing are identical, the song later was re-released with different sleeve and additional LP version, and i'm not talking about the 1987... See full review

thats a good question, noted that some years ago as well and wondered about it also, but did not compare further, if i switch between the two releases to compare now, they seem to have added some tracks later, T99 for example. why they gave it a new... See full review

normally i hate almost all these post 1992 remixes, as they are 99% "diggedy diggedy kindergarden trance remixes for little child smurf tekkno ravers", not in this case, pretty well done remix, and not easy to remix such a class tune!

Absolute beast of a techno megamix. heard it when it came out and it blew my mind, was 13 at the time, and the energetic and amazing forward pushin tracks with intro and middle break, sirens/horns, rave stabs, deep house organs, moody basses, phat... See full review

heavily inspired from culture beat - erdbeermund, listen to the bass and the "fill in" crash/hi hats :-)
but common at that time to sample from each other, very very well done, no problem at all, love it :-)

surely not for everyone, this record for me is one of the greatest italo records of all times,
so melancholic, so emotional, what a song!

Invader is an amazing masterpiece imo, of course i'm a bit biased here, but for me, it marked a beginning of a new era at that time, an era of dance and techno music, for me it sounds like a kind of intro to "the new world of worldwide fusion of... See full review
