4.0 out of 5 stars Good but Work's better
At the time of writing, it is'nt clear stated on Amazon but this is a greatest hits album. Tracklistings good but there are some clear ommissions. I don't suppose you can have a full representation of Orbital's music on a single disc but most of the tracks are what I think most fans would have put on. Personally I prefer Work 1989-2002 which contains the 7' edits for many...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Reasonable intro to a great band but 'other albums are available'
I agree wholeheartedly with other reviews here that this is a perfectly acceptable collection of some very good tunes from the Orbital boys. Most of their tracks are awesome anyway so picking a handful of 'winners' isn't difficult(!) BUT, for me, 'Works' is definitely a better, and more complete, 'Greatest Hits' and personally I prefer to listen to the original albums...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but Work's better, 14 Sep 2005

This review is from: Halcyon - The Platinum Collection (Audio CD)

I don't suppose you can have a full representation of Orbital's music on a single disc but most of the tracks are what I think most fans would have put on. Personally I prefer Work 1989-2002 which contains the 7' edits for many of the album tracks (A great introduction to Orbital, teaser for the extended album tracks and a nice bonus for the existing fan). As it is this compilation's good but 2nd rate to Work

4.0 out of 5 stars IT'S A GREATEST HITS!!!, 10 Jan 2009
By 
Jason Thorne (England / Oxford) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Halcyon - The Platinum Collection (Audio CD)
This is a great album which some real class chill out tunes that you need to listen to in dark room with a decent set of head phones on. I may be wrong I think this is a greatest hits of Orbital and their best work isn't on there but still the same this is still a top draw track listing.

A great CD with all the classic tunes from Orbital, one of the top dance acts from the 90's and 00's

3.0 out of 5 stars A Reasonable intro to a great band but 'other albums are available', 8 Dec 2013
This review is from: Halcyon - The Platinum Collection (Audio CD)
I agree wholeheartedly with other reviews here that this is a perfectly acceptable collection of some very good tunes from the Orbital boys. Most of their tracks are awesome anyway so picking a handful of 'winners' isn't difficult(!) BUT, for me, 'Works' is definitely a better, and more complete, 'Greatest Hits' and personally I prefer to listen to the original albums these tracks first appeared on so you hear them 'in context'.
All in all this is a good (albeit short) album especially as an intro to the wonderful world of Orbital but TBH if you like this go and get the albums, if you want a greatest hits go and get 'Works'....... go and buy it all!!! LOL :-)
