Sample of ABC "How to be a millionaire" is maybe why this track has been completely abandoned. It is rather excellent though.

I can remember picking this one up in a store way back without listening. I did not know the track before, only bought it, cause it was Orbital. Later at home it blew me away completely. The female voice throughout the track is plain awesome, in the second part a male voice joins in the chant. "Omen" is a bleepy, mystic and hypnotic track, my favorite Orbital work besides "Lush". It still can be played nowadays, it's a timeless classic!
