Get this first album if you can for cheap. Timeless classic of what would be the best Techno duo of all time before the 2010's killed Techno.

This release is actually a compilation and not Orbital's "real" first album.

Unfortunately, the mix of Midnight is an edit of the 12" version, but it is better than the "live" mix that appears on the non-US versions of this album.

Apart from obvious classics Belfast and Chime, you also get the first version of Satan, which is not quite the nasty, angry, frothing-at-the-mouth monster it is now, but does have some brilliant noises in it. Other highlights include the noisy Choise, the sublime Midnight, and Desert Storm, which is full of Eastern promise.
