Opener The Night Before is a mid-paced, lazy houser that sits somewhere between prog and deep on the sliding subgenre scale, if you see what I mean, and gets a little bit Balearic and euphoric around the edges… one for those hazy post-club sessions.
On the B, The Morning After is another proggy, melodic number in its original form, with warm piano chords, a mournful sax and multi-layered strings providing the musicality over an unhurried, insistent rhythm. The dancefloor ante is then upped on the Universal Solution Remix, which de-emphasises the melodic elements in favour of driving, pacier beats and some spaced-out synth action.
Overall, perhaps a little bit more 'floaty prog' than is usual for TIWWD, but worthy of a place in your box all the same.
