The first Orb album was entirely new when it appeared: a low-key dance record, with echoes and swells more than up-front tunes, stoner-level dub bass, and all sorts of samples and sounds--seagulls, film clips, astronaut voices, bits of disco--fluttering through the mix like hallucinations. Essentially a techno album for tired dancers, it's held up nicely over time, thanks to its intricate, dreamy sonics. Beyond the classic "Little Fluffy Clouds"--a set of interlocking synth hooks and loping percussion, held together by a cut-up sample of Rickie Lee Jones talking about the skies of her youth--there are lots of mellow delights here, particularly the blissful reggae groove "Perpetual Dawn." --Douglas Wolk

I used to own this album and love it so much I decided to buy it again! I heard that the new crowd is turning their snobbish back to the innovative and creative power of The Orb; well you have to be a real prick to snob music like this. The Orb pioneered the way to modern music makers and they are still highly creative! Their sound is not obsolete and I still hear new stuff that does not have half the class and quality of this album.

Some may prefer the first CD but I particularly prefer the second CD because I think it is more dubby. Don't misread me, Earth (Gaia) is sublime but the dubby feel of Perpetual Dawn and Into the Fourth Dimension are perfect! Outlands' rain and delicate synth notes are a perfect transition to more dub. Star 6 & 7 8 9 is my favorite on this album and A Huge Ever [...] the ultraworld live Mix MK 10 is a pure blissful classic!
