I'm not entirely sure why anyone would say that the Green and Brown albums are the best here and the other 3 are just alright? I'd say the first 4 albums are all absolute classics, the Middle of Nowhere is good and perhaps classic to anyone who's not been following Orbital since the very beginning but perhaps not as super analog and creative as the previous 4 albums.

For me the analog days represent the best of Orbital. As soon as the Novation Supernova synth and copious software plugins reared their ugly head, I feel they lost a bit of their creativity and sparkle.

Insides and Snivilisation are more melodic offerings and in my opinion the real journey's here, but to choose which is the best of the 1st four albums would be like choosing which of your children are your favourites.

Personally I love Insides for tracks like "The Girl With the Sun in Her Hair" and "Out There Somewhere Parts 1&2" these are tracks only Paul and Phil could have made and are pure genius with bubbling, screaming synths and real atmosphere. I much prefer the darker sides to Orbital and the unique sound pallets they constructed across their first 4 albums, their later stuff especially the new album Wonky is a little too over sweet for my liking, though I still like their work very much.

When they released the single "The Gun is Good" last year I really thought we were getting back the Orbital of old and this made me really hopeful their new album would be full of mental synths, interesting samples and spot on humour. Unfortunately Wonky didn't even have "The Gun is Good" on the track listing and for me tried to hard to embrace the new. The age old adage of "Nothing's broke, don't fix it" rings true here.

This box-set is worth getting just for the green and brown albums, which are pretty much exemplary early nineties electronica. These records have aged better than qumran copper scrolls and there are far too mamy standout tracks to mention, they are synonymous with the cream of techno.

The other three albums are alright, but in their quite reasonable desire to become more prog, as most electronic acts intuitively do, they lost a bit of their streamlined essence, best found in their catchiest, lengthy minamalist grooves.

So three clever albums and two absolutely classic albums, all in quite a deal.

I'll keep this one short and sweet. Put simply what you have here is many of the finest techno gems ever made. A lot of stuff here will never stop blowing your mind, eg. all the 'Brown' album, and it comes at a ridiculously low price. The only negative point I can come up with is all 5 cds come in cardboard sleeves rather than the original packaging, this may seem petty but that sort of thing is important to your typical trainspotter! If you don't have this stuff and have an interest in electronic music you must buy this at the earliest opportunity.

Last year I saw Orbital perform live twice (Amazing!) I knew quite a few of their tracks... but I bought this before I saw them live to get me in the mood, and it did. Fantastic boxset and great value, buy it!

This box set of discs is both excellent music and also excellent value.

It's got its own playlist on the MP3 player and is recommended for any Orbital fans with gaps in the back catalogue.
