I’ve never wrote a review before and probably will never again but heres an album you can turn on and let it play throughout without having to to skip and wish a certain track would hurry the fuck up and finish, which by any dance albums standards is an amazing feet in itself. The Brown ALBUM is a truly remarkable LP that can change the mood of a cosy evening in beside the fire or a club packed with 1,500 people to a stadium of twenty thousand people. I truly wish that music like this was still made today and that more people would recognise the importance and significance of this release and try to emulate it with today’s technology. I seen orbital many times in huge arenas and enjoyed their performances albeit out of my face on drugs and never really remembered what they played. It wasn’t until later life I bought and downloaded a few albums did I really appreciate and respect their music that bit more. Orbital I salute you for being one of the best dance acts EVER.

I used to think that remind was a better tune than halcyon, thinking that halcyon was a bit too gay. I have listened to this baby possibly two hundred times or more. When I broke the CD I went out and bought a brand new copy right away. Lush 3-1 is a remarkable track too. Planet of the shapes is another journey, as well as Monday and Impact. That's almost the whole album! I do think that the success that they have made off of Kirsty Hawkshaw is somewhat unfair to Kirsty Hawkshaw, who also unfairly achieved success singing a cover song. That is probably the reason for it not making mainstream success.

Ahhh the Brown Album. The Brown Album gives uncounted moments of joy. All hail the Brown Album in all its splendor. Excellent pop techno, made for the mad for it masses that is replete with blistering tracks, trancey breakdowns, ambient wastescapes and lost in the sauce acid noodlings. The complete package.
