AllMusic Review by

One of the most frequently smuggled in slices of vinyl for DJs across the Atlantic and, consequently, one of the few stabbing instrumental trance songs to ever elicit a crowd synth singalong (as fans were wont to do at Britian's first Love Parade), "Superstring" was 2000's best unconcealed weapon whenever a set needed a proper moody wibbly bit. The original may tread lightly on an unusually disturbing patch of bubbling tech thorns, but all money is on the Rank 1 remix: a pulsing ruby of anthemic posturing, it's so good that you'll wonder why more people don't sing along to high-pitched, three-note keyboard riffs.
