Insides (Version 2)
1.  Insides (Version 2) by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Newcomers definitely start here.Their perennial prog-electronic masterpiece. Plus their biggest hit 'The Saint' is bonus track here and both parts of 'The Box' are fantastic. Real must have above all."
12.23   Used & New from: 3.87
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

Orbital
2.  Orbital by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Less a second album, more dj-set style CD with new material - this is Orbital at their dancefloor friendliest. Features 'Lush 3' and 'Halcyon' that are truly canonical.Hasn't dated at all, by the way."
7.32   Used & New from: 1.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Live At Glastonbury 1994-2004
3.  Live At Glastonbury 1994-2004 by Joseph Arthur
The list author says:
  "Magic of the band in full glory - 16 live cuts that truly deliver euphoria of being there(featured DVD also comes in handy). So far the only comrehensive overview of the legendary masters. Essential."
Used & New from: 5.69
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Snivilisation
4.  Snivilisation by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Darker,deeper,more conceptual,but nonetheless a triumphant record. Definitely, a "grower". Features beautiful vocals by then-unknown Alison Goldfrapp and weird & different, but grasping arrangements."
7.47   Used & New from: 1.48
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

The Middle Of Nowhere
5.  The Middle Of Nowhere by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Also known as"their last truly great album".Monolithic sound-wise with convex tunes,eerie at core,yet upbeat, this is a bit like "In Sides" on anti-depressants.Hey, 'Way Out ->' is pure crushing joy."
9.99   Used & New from: 0.46
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Diversions [Us Import]
6.  Diversions [Us Import] by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Great companion to 'Orbital II' - excellent John Peel sessions excerpts adjoin ace (in my humble opinion) 'Lush 3' remixes. Nowadays it's a relative rarity, but nonetheless well worth finding."
10.03   Used & New from: 4.40
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Orbital - Octane
7.  Orbital - Octane by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Menacing ambient,gothic mood,unsettling arrangements that will scare/hypnotize you. Glorious soundtrack to lame horror flick.Listen to it at night for bigger effect. Features chilling 'Initiation'."
20.00   Used & New from: 4.79
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

The Ideal Condition
8.  The Ideal Condition by Paul Hartnoll
The list author says:
  "Paul Hartnoll goes solo with mixed results. 'Haven't We Met Before?' & 'Patchwork Guilt' are fabulous dance cuts, guest vocals of Robert Smith are pleasant enough, lightweight instrumentals less so."
9.17   Used & New from: 1.24
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Madness And Me
9.  Madness And Me by Long Range
The list author says:
  "Debut from Phil Hartnoll - not excellent, but very listenable electronica. Buy at least for title track, 10 minute chill-out masterpiece 'Just One More' & upbeat 'Which Way Now'. Very promising."
2.05   Used & New from: 0.47
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Orbital
10.  Orbital by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Their debut album-made of rave demos and underground vibes.Sounds a bit dated, but occasionally impresses(see 'Chime Live'). I wouldn't call it a classic,but many fans do,so you decide what it is :)"
5.01   Used & New from: 1.48
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Back to Mine - Orbital
11.  Back to Mine - Orbital by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Pretty good (though inessential) mix-tape that includes The Divine Comedy, Plaid and Jethro Tull on one disc. Eccentric,but intriguing. Note that it features exclusive Orbital track 'Ska'd For Life'."
9.07   Used & New from: 2.00
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Blue Album
12.  Blue Album by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Their last CD.Stylistically а bit of everything from previous discs.Merely satisfying,but not without its strong moments.Dignified farewell to fans,despite formulaic overall structure.'You Lot' rules."
21.95   Used & New from: 2.44
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Work 1989 - 2002
13.  Work 1989 - 2002 by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Not the ultimate anthology Orbital deserves-majority of tracks are in very short 7'' edits, no The Saint(!!!),only The Box from "In Sides",2 new tracks are so-so. Still, an introduction of sorts."
19.36   Used & New from: 0.74
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Halcyon - The Platinum Collection
14.  Halcyon - The Platinum Collection by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Kind of random selection of Orbital tracks. Not enough well-known numbers to qualify as "best of", could have been more real great album cuts.Neither for beginners,nor for completists. Ahem,indeed."
5.13   Used & New from: 0.15
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

The Altogether
15.  The Altogether by Orbital
The list author says:
  "Orbital's weakest CD is, perhaps, fans only affair. Samples Tool, reimagines Doctor Who theme and feat. David Gray on vocals - no wonder, it's a mess of an album. But 'Tension' & 'Meltdown' are worthy"
8.45   Used & New from: 0.24
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews)

Event Horizon Ost
16.  Event Horizon Ost by Michael Kamen
The list author says:
  "Collaboration between Orbital and composer Michael Kamen.Long & pointless/aimless orchestral compositios,which are presumably best listened to while on hard drugs.Best avoid if you're clean,though :))"
15.95   Used & New from: 3.98
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)
