This review is from: The Middle of Nowhere (Audio CD)
Orbital's early albums saw them pushing all before themselves with a carpet-sweeper of new metallic industrial sounds and busy drumbeats. They could have developed that but instead they got lazy. Everything seems so random here - just notes played in no particular order, and by pure chance here and there certain sequences overlay to produce something vaguely listenable. The percussion is frantic throughout. Melodies are just formular progressions of notes. You've heard this all before and you've heard it so much better on their first four albums.
