Nice to see this album re-released. The Orb were one of the highlights of the early 90s, and it's easy to forget how much fun they were. Time has washed over the slick 'n' seedy aspects of the dance era and left a few classics - this album being one of them.

The standout dance tracks are Little Fluffy Clouds and Perpetual Dawn, both still fresh and funny. What is surprising is how much of this album is quiet, even 'New Age' in intention. Forget all the trendy booklet spin about being for 'chill out rooms', and punk name-dropping, this is Eno lite, with a smile on its face. Two 'classical' pieces (by Allegri and Steve Reich) get prominent samples too. The samples (aural and otherwise)are largely uncredited, something I was hoping for in this deluxe release. For example, the 'huge pulsating brain' title is taken from a description of 'The Core', a Blake's 7 sound effect from a BBC album that supplies many noises throughout the Orb's output. Even Pink Floyd get sampled at one point.

The bonus disc is superb - I dare say an even better album than the main one! The 21 minute Peel session is arguably the finest work the Orb have ever done, hugely entertaining. On the whole, a great set to revisit. Not their most perfect album, but hugely influential, and immesurably strengthened by the remixes.

Fasten your seatbelts and prepare to head to deep space!

It's all here "Little Fluffy Clouds" and "Perpetual Dawn" - the two best singles The Orb ever released. That second side of disc one - thirty continuous minutes of ambient music par excellence. "Into The Fourth Dimension" - the best single The Orb *never* released and the prototype for the entirety of the overserious catalogue by Enigma. "A huge ever-growing pulsating brain that rules from the centre of the ultraworld (loving u)" - the best title song ever and in three amazing versions! A good version of Outlands - finally!

OK, so this music may not now be the most inventive or forward thinking ever released because the influence and quality of this album has enabled the genre to be improved upon with subsequent efforts by both The Orb and by other artists. Nevertheless as top-notch ambient excursions into space, the mind, the fourth dimension and other such wibble, it remains pretty darn faultless. To hear it digitally remastered is a joy and the bonus tracks are wonderful to behold.

It is also nice to see Island/Universal finally atone for their previous shocking reissues of this album, which have seen "Little Fluffy Clouds" retitled "White Fluffy Clouds" and used black and white photocopies of original artwork!

In short, this is probably more for previous owners of the album wishing to relive the good old days and explore those long-deleted Aubrey mixes without spending a hundred quid on eBay!

At the time of the albums release a lot of people, brought up on a diet of 80's indie music, were starting to get into the dance/rave scene and The Orb were those people's favourite band. Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld gives you a pretty good indication of why this was; its stacked full of great melodies, huge dubby bass lines and a warped sense of humour. Surely everyone knows "Little Fluffy Clouds" by now, but there are plenty of other beauties to keep you going; "Outlands" sounds like a space funk version of Booker T's "Green Onions", "Star 6 and 7,8,9" is a nursery rhyme from heaven and "Perpetual Dawn" is skip-hop reggae broadcast from the moons residentual dub outfit. This deluxe edition includes an additional CD bringing in alternate versions of the tracks from various singles, Peel Sessions and Remix albums - the best of which is the fantastical "Outlands (Fountains of Elisha Mix)", perhaps one of The Orb's finest moments.

Buy it and then get UFOrb.

I've got the original CD release of this and didn't really know if it would be worth getting this deluxe package. I'm glad I did. The remaster does improve on the original, this type of music does benefit from an improved recording. My favourite Orb album, this also includes the Peel Session track, (one of many bonuses on Disc Three), recommended.

For me this has to be a 5 star rating. Nostalgia for my student days aside, listening to it 20 years on it is still fresh, absorbing, vibrant and a complete listening experience either in the background while you work or study or to sit and fully concentrate on. TOABTU is a classic album and I don't think that I can add much to the descriptions and plaudits already eloquently expressed by other reviewers. The basic album has been remastered, not the the old one really needed it, but the sound for me is crisper and more vibrant. The extra disc is a great addition to the package with some .

If you want to explore electronica, ambient techno or chill out music this is highly recommended.

Like so many before me i got this cd on its original release. Chilling out after all night clubbing and returning to Earth to the sounds of Little Fluffy Clouds on sunday afternoons was a common occurence. Seeing them play live at all nighters at Brixton academy and having the visuals to go along with this stuff was also a part of my memories on hearing this again.

Then things changed, the club scene changed and everything associated with clubbing changed and so my Orb collection was more or less put to the back of my collection (and im sure a lot of folks did the same) Until now!. On seeing this re-release the idea of these seminal tracks being cleaned up and sounding new and fresh was something i couldnt resist, and im more than happy that i did give in. The Orb were and to a point still are , Magnificent, They changed the face of ambiant/house style music and really were the pioneers they professed to be. This release has been cleaned up to the point that it does bring out the limits to the original tape it was recorded on, ie clicks and hiss in some places, but that doesnt detract from the brilliance that is the whole of the Adventures album, im just amazed that it was so long ago and how fresh it still sounds. Shame on me for consigning these guys to my has-been section, because its far from the truth. They are as relevent now as they ever were, its just us that changed not them!.

Only one thing wouldve made this better and that would have been a 5.1 mix but maybe thats gonna be for the 20th anniversary release.
