4.0 out of 5 stars This isn't Orbital, so stop expecting it to be them ..., 14 Jun 2007
This review is from: The Ideal Condition (Audio CD)
Well, if that didn't say it enough I don't know what will. I do agree to an extent to the earlier poster's views that Orbital's best work was up to Middle of Nowhere, afterwhich they went downhill, though sadly/happily came to an abrupt end the latter half of 2004.

Paul Hartnoll should not be confused with Orbital - sure, he was one half of Orbital, but now he's doing his own thing as since he isn't going under the name of Orbital, I say he can pretty much do whatever he likes and get away with it: I guess what he's really looking for is an audience, and although the Orbital fanbase loves the music that both Paul and his brother Phil have produced over the last 10-15 years, it doesn't necesarilly mean that that same audience is ready for this. It's a step in a completely different from anything Orbital have ever done, and tbph I'm really enjoying it as a standalone album and would probably go out and buy it even if I hadn't heard the whole thing through yet.
