    Production wise, very nice piece. However it's not the sort of thing I'd buy or play.

    One of the first tunes I don't love by Fresh.

    "If Im a monster baybee, then why dont you kill me?!?!"

    Fookin lovin it - that bassline smacks the shit outta ya on the dancefloor - three-dimensional stylee! Senior fresh played this @ Breakneck if my memory serves me right, an ive been hangin to get hold of it since.

    Jus gotta find somewhere to get a copy from, been on Tinternet since 9.00 today, an no luck as of yet....

    just read the breakbeat kaos release info sdm posted a while ago. there is sposed 2 be a 'collosus ep' which contains 'capture the flag', yet the promos of collosus are only 1 plate.
    any ideas whats happening with 'capture the flag'??

    good old ram messing with the promowhores heads. its probably like with the screamer ep. promo a single, full release an ep.

    as for fresh's colossus i dunno why but i like it and i do like it a lot. this is the first track since "all strung out" that ive liked from solo fresh.

    It's OK, but I'll probably not buy it
    Can't understand the hype, it's pretty average

    It's out on promo now - had it in my shop.

    I like the synths and the pad-synth in the second drop, but otherwise ehhh.
