4.0 out of 5 stars The beginning..., 14 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Orbital (Audio CD)
I own all five albums and it's interesting to see how orbital have evolved from the green album. This is by far their most simplistic album. By Orbital's standards, that's not a bad thing but the relatively primitive loops do show up in comparison to their other albums. An excellent display of staggeringly strange and unique synths such as those on Oolaa remedy this and indicate the experimental and redefining nature of their albums yet to come. It's defintely worth purchasing if you already own the latter four and especially for Belfast which to this day remains one of their standout tracks. It shows the foundations from which Orbital evolved from and which indeed many following electronic artists would attempt to imitate. Overall, I think it deserves four stars as it helped redefine a genre which many considered at the time to be a momentary phenomenom. The Hartnol brothers proved them wrong with this landmark album.
