Good value reissue with soem interesting alternative versions,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cydonia (Audio CD)
If you liked it the first time around then this reissue is a must. The second disc includes some wildly different interpretations, plus the Scourge of The Earth (Caulty) remix of Once More, which I think only appeared on vinyl originally. Disc 2 almost works as an album in its own right, but Disc 1 is still the real business (apart from the silly Egnable, but you can program that out if you wish).
Not always classic Orb, and includes first real foray into vocal tracks (guest vocalists), but more varied than Orblivion and far more accessible than Pomme Fritz. They followed with the dreamy Bicycles and then the dub-tastic Dream, so the Orb are still very much around. However this is a solid album and the reissue is well mastered. One slight gripe, the original photographic artwork (and front cover type) is slightly soft-focus now, almost like a case of bad copying (?!), which detracts very slightly from an otherwise strong package and extended liner notes.

Program out Egnable? No way dude! The album just would not be the same without it! Yes it's silly, wonderfully so, and sets us up nicely that for the getting down to business that is to come with Firestar and mini-climax with Lump of Lard. Ah well, to each their own.
