Worth noting that this track featured on the original Playstation game Wipeout 2 (2097) in 1996 way before it's official release and signalled the fact gaming really had grown up once and for all. Great game with a truly awesome soundtrack. Sonic eat your heart out.
6 out of 5 if this would be possible. I was well surprised when this came out: My first contact to FSOL was of course Papua-New-Guinea in 1992 (I just found out later that Stakker humanoid was also from them) and I loved their stuff in 1992/1993 beeing very dancefloor friendly. After that they released quality music no question but more for the kind of "listening at home with your speakers on". This record now in 1997 is the bomb really: You can't put it in a certain category of style, it has serious breaks and broken beats, a distorted guitar sample and is so funky that you can shake your butt to. I love the ending of the Original Mix with that voice "it's a tough jungle out there" and then that kind of ambient accoustic guitar in the end. Weird stuff. The Kurtis Mantronik Remix is also excellent for the floor. An unexpected release for FSOL that hasn't lost anything of its raw energy in 2006.
