Something's bugging me about this track- I am positive that it is not Shara Nelson on the vocals... it sounds a hell of a lot more like Angie Brown (from Bizarre Inc).
I expected more out of this, i bought this quite cheap but was still let down alot. Seeing both Shara Nelson's name and it including a remix by Groove Armada got my hopes up alot but i did not like the original nor the remix by Findley & Cato.

The original is a decent midtempo affair and is brought down with the nature of Shara's vocals, it's a bit too dramatic for what the track is doing. They must have sensed that when they did a faster bigbeatleaning version of the original which suited the vocals down to a t. Isla Negra works well on the dancefloor and is bouncy yet driving. Groove Armada turn in a deeper house remix which is bland and doesn't really do much or bring anything exciting to the table.
