Orbital's "best of" album is supposed to sum this hugely influential electronic band (arguably the second greatest ever, behind their idols Kraftwerk) in one single disc. I think this is the first flaw, Orbital deserve a double CD comparable to Pink Floyd's "Echoes". As for the music, it is difficult to argue with the tracks chosen, (with the exception of the dreadful "Illuminate"), but too many are in edited form, and thus inferior to their album versions. A clear case in point is "Halcyon", an all-time great that achieves moving emotion on the Brown album, but fails to satisfy in the seven inch form. "Impact USA" is also inferior to the version on the Brown album, whilst the "Spawn" version of the classic "Satan" is puzzlingly included. Making a best of Orbital album is sure to cause more than a few murmurs of discontent, but that does not detract from the fact that what is chosen is still pretty damn good. But the question still has to be asked: why does Orbital's worst ever track ("Illuminate") appear on a "best of" album?

I would just like to make this clear, this is not meant to be a "Best Of" compilation, it isn't. Work is meant (as it explains in the inlay card) to be a singles collection, with the exception of choice and frenetic which are bonus tracks. Each of these were released at various points in the last 13 years as singles. I agree that if it was a best of, the track choice would be radically different, but this is not meant that way. I also cannot understand the criticism of the version of Halcyon included, it is a great track, and in my opinion compares favourably with Halcyon+on+on on Orbital 2. Which, in fact is not even the original version. And anyway, if "Work" only contained the album versions of tracks, what would be the point? Instead of complaining about tracks being missing etc. just enjoy a compilation which shows how a great band's sound has evolved over the years.

"Industry Standard" mix of Are We Here? How apt! A 1 disc collection was never going to do them justice but... Illuminate, Frenetic? These tracks aren't terrible (not by a long stretch) but... what are they doing on a "best of" album, when they're plainly not the best that the Hartnoll brothers have to offer?
Dubious entries, apart from the above, include Satan Spawn (the original's so much better); Halcyon (butchered 7" version); in fact practically every "short" version! A shame that this compilation misses the target so widely.
An industry standard compilation representing an above standard discography.

What i don't understand is how so many people have given this album a bad review? It is in my opinion a great way of hearing the different styles orbital has pioneered in the last thirteen years. If you don't like one track your bound to find another to your liking on it. This album porbably isn't for those who already own some of the older orbital stuff, but is worth a gander for anyone new to there music.
