"Andy's Mix" on side one is a perfect start to this set: a lively garage mix with funky guitar, horn stabs, filtered synth and vocal samples. The lyrics remind you that you can do all things by faith and belief in God. "Ralph's Trippy Dub" (side B) is just that, while "Ministers' Conceive", "Believe" and "Achieve Mix" is more of a traditional bass, keys and drums garage mix giving more of an emphasis to the vocals. The "High Again" remix provides yet more variety, and "Mazi's Gourmet Remix" turns out to be a memorable instrumental with some gorgeously squelchy synth samples. "Johnny Fiasco's Attack Mix" ups the pace (to 130bpm) at the end of side four to finish on more of a dub-trance note. Rarely will such quality and variety be found with a four-sided set.
