You start to worry about the state of dance music when you pick this album out nowadays. Where are the dance acts nowadays to pick up the baton from the dance supergroups of this era? The old greats splitting, disappearing or just not putting out the quality that they once used to. What do we have now? Can you really see someone like Stonebridge or 'random trance/funky house act X' crafting an album as superb as this that will still sound as fresh over ten years after its intial release?
Start pondering over thoughts such as that and you'll work yourself up into a frenzy, so highly strung that nothing could unwind you. Well thats until you reach for this and stick it on. All those worries fade away as you being on another journey to the Ultraworld. All your worries melt away as the familiar strains of Fluffy Little Clouds kick in ... they were red, yellow, purple and all the colours dontchya know?
If you've only ever heard Fluffy Little Clouds and have dismissed the Orb as a piece of early 90's dance history, well you just don't know what you're missing. The concept is a journey through space from Earth to the Ultraworld ... a journey that spans two 60 minutes CDs. Each CD progesses from chilled ambient house towards beatless ambience. It helps craft the mood of the vastness of space. I love the way that the tracks blend into each other, each track announced with a spinetingling synth, a choice vocal sample and scatterings of fx, all helping build anticipation for the track to come. The best example of this is when Into The Forth Dimention kicks in. The deep cosmic synth sounds, the ominous 'It was a cloud formation ... roughly the same size of the Earth' sample and the operatic singers.

Adventures....is still the best orb album by miles and one of the best dance albums ever. The opening track Little Fluffy Clouds is garentteed to put a smile on your face before the music drifts off into ambient dub with discreet beats and brilliant use of samples such as Ming from Flash Gordon. It really does sound as if the music is taking you into another dimension of wierd trippiness. The second disc kicks off with the brilliant reggae track Perpetual Dawn and is even better than the first disc. The closing track, Huge Evergrowing Pulsating Brain That Rules from the Centre of the Ultraworld is also a classic, very infectious and like Little Fluffy Clouds, great to chill out to.
If you think you don't like dance music, buy this and you soon will

Over a decade on, this still remains the album that was most ahead of its time. In the so called progressive world of the dance genre, this still sounds fresher and of higher quality than most released today.
It is divided up into two parts, "Orbit", and "Ultraworld", both of which contain a total of 102 minutes running time of the most beautiful inventive ambient music of all time.
Orbit starts with the legendary "little fluffy clouds" and continues in an equally fresh vein. Each second of the music is made with such clarity, that the soothing tones are ever so more effective.
Ultraworld has a slightly more uptempo feel, with "Perpetual Dawn"- their mercurial hit, in album form. The next two tracks are low-key experimental dub tracks but still of great worth. The end may simply be the best ending to any album. "Star 6 & 789" is a fantastic ambient track with a brilliant pre-"A Man Called Adam" spanish guitar riff. The end is a mammoth seventeen minute pulse of early synth. The rhythm and tempo are perfectly balanced and the effect is astounding.
In summary then, put the CD on and then immerse yourself in a whole new world of sound.

Every now and then an album is released that is just so fantastic it takes you ten years to realise how great it is.
The Orb's adventures in the Ultraworld is one of those albums. This album is so fantastic I could talk endlessly for hours about it, but I have 1,000 words only so I will be as concise as I can.
This is a journey literally into previously uncharted waters. Forget anything you have ever heard before i.e Pink Floyd, Radiohead and other extraterrestrial artists - the Orb are the first group who pioneered a sound called 'Ambient Dub'. Alex Paterson was and still is a genius.
Listening to this album, I often wonder especially as it was made 13 years ago, how the sounds on it were made and processed. It was as if The Orb invented their own equipment!!`
I first really got to grips with this album one night in April 2003 after owning the album for 6 years and heard many tracks from The Orb over the last 13 years.
Believe me it takes a long time to 'get' this album. When you do you will realise nothing in your life will be the same again.
Here is a rough track-by track guide to help a person curious about this album to figure what The Orb are all about
LITTLE FLUFFY CLOUDS - Track 1
One of the very first dance tunes that wasnt cheesy and VERY futuristic sounding at the time. A mixture of swirling synths, dub and vocal samples put together with breathtaking ease. Although this track is amazing I think it should have been on the 2nd CD of the album as it is very upbeat and the 1st CD is very 'stoner' sounding.
