9 Songs, 1 Hour 12 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This ambitious 1994 album will leave you in a sweating, swirling, ecstatic trance. Bringing on DJ Darren Emerson was a brilliant move by Karl Hyde and Rick Smith, whose rock inclinations get completely submerged in endless textures of ambient echoes, throbbing bass, buzzing synths, and scattered breakbeats. Hyde's dark, monotone moan—often multi-tracked—snakes its way through beats that drive relentlessly forward. Propulsive, yet fluid and melodic, this is dance music that both electronic heads and indie rockers can agree on.

Worth rediscovering

Such a great album. The original master always sounded a little soft and too filtered, a bit like you were listening through a pillow. This version reveals more and brings the stage closer. I'm really enjoying rediscovering it again.

Easily still one of the best

Mastery at work, time does not age nor turn this album into any passing fad. This is timeless stuff that people will discover and be moved by for ages into the future. There will be a day, while inhabiting new planets, this album is still played by our species or whatever it resembles. Emotion and art, captured forever.

Masterpiece

One of the few albums I can play front to back and 20 years later- still find new things I like about this album, this album is a classic and stands the test of time- easily one of my favorite albums of all time
