A relatively straightforward single release from Mr. G, who serves up the original "Steam," plus a remix by Hank Shocklee and the Bomb Squad (notable for sampling "Slide" by Slave as much as anything in this mix); the truncated dub version of Shocklee's mix is also tossed in. Massive Attack conspire with Dave Bottrill, meanwhile, to recook "Games Without Frontiers" in a slippery, sensual manner. "Steam" is a fun song, overall, but the gem is probably the "Games" mix.
