This review is from: Back to Mine - Orbital (Audio CD)
Orbital - Back To Mine.
Orbital's Back to Mine collection is a bit special, not only is it the 10th in the series but it's probably the most eclectic mix to date, but if you've heard the Hartnoll brothers own recordings you wouldn't expect anything less. Here the boys dim the lights on their famous torch glasses and rely on trusty candle power to accompany an evening back round theirs. Orbital's soiree kicks off with 60's soundtracky grooves like John Barry's 'the knack' and glides into skanking reggae territory courtesey of Lee Perry and an exclusive from the Hartnolls themselves in the shape of 'Ska'd For Life'. Then as more gold label gets drunk the boys move into a more twisted dancefloor direction and drop standout tracks like DSR's 'Babaloo' or the ever trippy Earth Leakage Trip's 'No Idea'. The odd curveball is thrown in too like PJ Harvey and Divine Comedy then it's wound back down again as the boys experimental faves Tangerine Dream and Plaid take us to home time.
