I had heard of the Orb before, basically from the "Hackers" second soundtrack, and I finally got the guts to pick up an Orb CD. Fortunately, I picked this one, for it is the perfect introductory album. I listen to a lot of techno, and it was great to once again find a quality group. Although the first few tracks seem very dancy (and they are), they are still very well done. Blue room is absolutely gorgeous. A few tracks later, toxygen and asylum provide more wonderful songs. And of course, mickey mars and towers of dub provide a different aspect of the Orb's skill. I now own Orblivion and Cydonia, both great albums (orblivion being one of the greatest techno albums ever). This is a good CD for anyone interested in the Orb or techo, or someone trying to discover new aspects of music. I give it a solid 90 percent.
