Album Review

Besides being one of the few early British dance albums worth its weight in artistry as well as sound, En-Tact is a truly historical gathering of the cream of the new dance music; mixing and production come from a cast including Paul Oakenfold, William Orbit, Graham Massey, Orbital, Evil Eddie Richards, the Beatmasters, Meat Beat Manifesto, Joey Beltram, Tommy Musto, the Irresistible Force and Caspar Pound. The Shamen fare well also on their own productions, and the singles "Move Any Mountain," "Make It Mine" and "Hyperreal Orbit" are infectious techno-pop anthems, while "Omega Amigo" is an early ambient classic.

fantastic album

this album is fantastic, why 3 stars you say because this is a different version to one i have on cd as home and it is much better - make it mine is not a guitar version let me tell you about the correct version (p.s. ITUNES sort yourself out) 1. human nrg 2. progen land of oz 3. possible worlds 4. omega omigo 5. hyperreal 6. lightspan 7. make it mine v2.5 (non guitar version) 8. oxygen restriction 9. evil is even 10. human nrg (massey) 11. make it mine (pirate radio) 12. oxygen reprise v2.0 13. hear me o my people (orbital delays expected) this original album is a classic with the original tracks, not the different version shown here

Two versions were relased

This is the second version of En-Tact. The original UK version was released in 1990 and was their first album to feature Mr C (Who owned the recently defunct London club "The End"). Following the release of the Progen 91 remix of Move any Mountain, The Shamen hit the (relative) big time and the album was released in the US and re-released in the UK with the above track listing featuring a number of remixes. Both versions have much to commend them.

A classic.


Formed: 1986 in Aberdeen, Scotland

Genre: Dance

Years Active: '80s, '90s

Combining swirling psychedelic rock with hardcore hip-hop rhythms, the Shamen were one of the first alternative bands to appeal to dance clubs as much as indie rockers. Comprised of Colin Angus, Peter Stephenson, Keith McKenzie, and Derek McKenzie, the Scottish quartet had its roots in the early-'80s neo-psychedelic group Alone Again Or. The Shamen officially formed in 1986 and released their first album, Drop, the following year. Drop was filled with varying guitar textures, recalling many late-'60s...
