This is possibly my most precious disc, as this was what first got me into Orbital. I'll never forget hearing "Bigpipe Style" for the second time. The first time blew my mind, but the second time was a very weird experience. I was watching a nature documentary about seals, and then on the track came, seemed to last the entire length of the documentary (about an hour). Very trippy business, with no drugs or anything like that. It was just a lovely, if strange, experience.
The second track on here, "An Fhomhair", is similar to "Otono", featured on the album "The Middle Of Nowhere". Both track titles mean "Autumn" - Otono being Spanish, and An Fhomhair being Gaelic. But don't quote me on that. Anyway, it's very nice, and features very weird vocal manipulation.
"New Style" is a bit different, probably something that some smartarse journo idiot would label "folktronica". I doubt many fans of the classic Orbital sound will be into this, but I like it. Or, more accurately, I can't decide whether I do or don't like it.
Also note the small picture on the back of the cover, which when combined with CD/12" one, and the two Nothing Left discs, forms a sequence of of some buildings being demolished. What this means is anyone's guess...
