Amazing album from the early Shamen some brilliant diverse electronica, minus MR C the prancing prize twat who later joined the band and wrecked it putting cheesy raps on every tune. The original 1990 release with the original unmixed Human NRG is the best with black cover and silver writing, not the remixed later 91 pop version. They should release the original 1990 black cover LP on 180G. Brilliant album and way ahead of the curve. Classic great sleeve artwork too. Reply See 2 replies Notify me 1 Helpful.

Originating in the British rave scene, the vocal-dance sensationalism of The Shamen was evident while being feverishly pumped from the DJ booths of early techno pioneers. Finding critical acclaim among the substantive corps of dance culture, they released En-Tact, their first major-label offering. Crossing electronic currents, the tracks come off hard with trance beats, soul stylings, rap-attack incantations, vocal duels, and snarling tones. Relying on the wired sounds of drum machines and sequencers, the rhythmic pulses push sound systems to their limit.
