The b-side is one of the most perfect & completes in dance music of the 90's.
Bleep techno + idm + acid & ambient house .... What a trip!

That's why you've not heard the untitled b3 cassette track, my friend....
For me, one of the best in Orbital career.

The vinyl version has the superior of the exclusive tracks. Macro Head is a huge hit

Not sure if anyone else noticed this but something clicked with me about this record the first time I heard it on vinyl. I think the production is much harder-hitting and warmer than the relatively flat-sounding CD.

Is there a better track than "Belfast" to end a long club night in the dawn, watching the sun rising? If so, I don't know him yet. Hints are welcome.

I honestly like the Belfast version with the vocals, adds more to it but I like both versions anyway,lol.

For some weird reason top material like Open Mind and Choice (especially the Eye & I mix) got stuck on single b-sides while F303 and Steel Cube Idolatry was included on the album. High Rise and Desert Storm are also rather sub-standard material (for Orbital), why weren't the singles Omen & Satan included instead? [EDIT: It took me some time to realize that The Möbius is actually Omen in disguise!] The Mutations remixes of Speed Freak and Oolaa are superior to the originals included here, and so is Chime Crime far the best version of Chime. Alas, in hindsight this album's shining lights are Midnight and Belfast.

The Untitled exclusive track on the cassette version is really good, I wish they had included that on all formats. I spoke with Paul Hartnoll before one of the shows during their 2018 tours, and he told me that it was down to the song being "unfinished" at the time.

Noticed today that my copy is starting to suffer with the common CD oxidization issue from the 90s.

An unremarkable debut - some nice ideas but masked with a bland, washed out production sound (reminiscent of 808 State's 'Gorgeous' - I think they both used B.A.S.E.)

Still one of the best debut albums of electronic music.
