So this album is basically a modern interpretation of Holst's 'The Planets', surely? It even samples it on Uranus (I think!) https://www.discogs.com/Holst-London-Symphony-Orchestra-The-Planets/release/8765095

Nearly 27 years on this album is still a staggering achievement! Though I must admit that when it was released I was only 11 so it's not like I can do a retrospective review of any kind.i discovered it in the mid 90's and the vinyl copy I had was a actually a w/l promo with a press release sheet.said press releases said it all and I was overcome with a sadness that I had not been around to appreciate it fully at time of release.the journalist talked about being away at an all night rave and coming back to find this on her 'to be listened to/reviewed' pile of records.my jealousy from not being in that privileged situation aside,i have to say,she nailed it!!!
If you ever get the chance to read it I highly recommend it,you'll be transported back to those idle and optimistic times.
That said,musically,it's up there with AFX's SAW or FSOL's Accelerator for the time,except that it probably exceeds them.

Cauty and Alex Paterson had been working together, as an early version of The Orb.....

"In 1990, Alex Paterson and Cauty held several recording sessions at Cauty's studio, Trancentral. When offered an album deal by Big Life, the Orb found itself at a crossroads: Cauty preferred that the Orb release its music through his KLF Communications label, whereas Paterson wanted to ensure that the group did not become a side-project of The KLF. Because of these issues, Cauty and Paterson split in April 1990, with Paterson keeping the name the Orb. As a result of the break-up, Cauty removed Paterson's contributions from the in-progress recordings and released the album as "Space" on KLF Communications"

KLF experimenting with ambient, very successfully. I had this on cassette only in 1990, and got my first vinyl copy of it in1993, strange how record collecting nerd people can remember such minutia, needless to say I dont remember what I had for dinner last night. Somehow amidst the rumblings of rave, industrial, stadium rock, vouge-ing, still-very-relevant non-ironic synth pop, and new jack swing that permeated the airwaves in 1990; the KLF dropped an album of rather shamanic tendencies and preoccupations ( in contrast to most others' output). An album you do have to actually listen to it and let your mind roam within it. Space does take you on an audio journey that is well worth taking, alone if necessary. In some tracks the journey has touches of house music slash acid house, and in others it veers into dark industrial illbience- with subtle drones,synth notes, and sampled voices of the astronauts; cool stuff.

This is an ambient masterpiece, I never get bored of this album. It sounds like a soundtrack for a flim that never got released. If you go on Soundcloud someone has put the original version with DR Alex Patterson's input, it's starts the oposite way round and it's about 7 minutes shorter. Check it out, you'll notice the difference.

One of the best ambient albums around. It is just so deep. You can go really far away with that one.

Take care of you :-)

This is a true masterpiece! Jimmy Cauty of the KLF drifts off into dark and unknown territory on this continous mix/journey in a manner not as accessible (maybe) as the "Chill Out" album of KLF but actually even more magical and mysterious.
The marvels of the universe unravels before our very ears and it´s a serious, deep and at times almost ominous trip. Simple but so deep that one almost levitates.
Not everything is eerie on this shamanistic quest, all of a sudden a Disney-esque choir brings life to our hopes and then, beyond we go.
Afterwards, you just don´t know what hit you...
