Originally released in 1994. Packaged in 'Super Jewel Box' with cardboard slipcase.

Track 1-2 originally released as "Ob-Selon Mi-Nos (Repainted by Global Communication)" on the Cyberdon EP by "Mystic Institute" That version is approx 37 seconds longer, having a slow fade-in at the beginning and slightly longer fade out at the end.

Track 1-4 was originally titled "Deep Space", according to Tom, from his discussion/listening event "Classic Album Sundays: Music for Exoplanets".

Track 1-5 is also known as "7:39 (Mark's Birthday Re-Take)" as the original demo went missing when they went to finalize the album and so a "re-take" was done attempting to recreate it. The "Original Version" has so far never been released.

Tracks 1-7 and 1-8 are also known as "Maiden Voyage I and II" respectively as per the "Maiden Voyage" EP. The "Maiden Voyage (Original 8:07>5:23 Edit)" on that release being the same track as "5:23" except that it starts with a fade-in from the last 30 seconds of "8:07" playing into "5:23" eliminating the the hard bass/beat start it has on the album when played individually.

Remix titles on CD2 do not appear on release. Track 2-7 is titled "Sensorama" and no main artist beyond Global Communication in tracklist.

This is by far my favorite album of all time. When originally released, it may have been lost in the heyday of ambient albums, but it truly stands the test of time. This version, remastered by Mark Pritchard, sounds amazing; samples that were buried before emerge like hidden gems, and the warmth of the vinyl version finally comes through to be archived for future generations of chillers. Absolutely essential.

Milestone in ambient music, yes. Perfect timing in every sound. Perfect echoing melodies. Pure soul in it that makes it timeless. It's not Brian Eno: it's futuristic, electronic, alive, gathering every influence from the ambient music before in a sinergistic manner. And not in the same league as "The Orb", but those like Jonah Sharpe (in his first days), Irresistible Force or Biosphere, but lighter, brighter and much more beautiful than those.

Another landmark in the Ambient era of 1993.This album simply is stunning. Nocturnal listening of the highest order with angelic soothing pads,ticking clocks,mutterings of different languages etc. The album opens like Close encounters' Opening credits,eerie,dissonant chords,heralding one of many nameless tracks(all tracks titled by their running times...GENIUS)Allowing the listener to make his/her own envisions of a truly better place 'No Matter where you are!'...A truly beautiful Aural painting..PRICELESS!

Milestone in ambient music? Sign me up!, it's crap. Don't get me wrong, I love my ambience, but this is almost completely devoid of quality. The only good track is the Orbital-style 9:25 which, by the way, is not ambient in the slightest. The rest of it seems to isolate the most annoying things about Eno (dated synth pads, overly crisp production), and ditch all the good stuff (interesting melodies, emotion). I read somewhere that 14:31 is regarded as one of the greatest, most original ambient tunes. Didn't Aphex Twin do almost the exact same track a few months previous on SAW II, complete with metronome/clock ticking? Now there's a quality ambient album, despite it's random noise interludes.

I can only assume that people who like this haven't heard the true pioneers of the genre - Eno, Stars Of The Lid, Aphex, and so forth. The sounds in 76:14 convey no emotion to keep you occupied when you are awake, and the percussive tracks make it impossible to sleep to. Pish.

Oh and it has a bonus disc full of what I imagine the chillout room sounds like at club hell. Boring.
