For me, the defining track of Orbital's career is "Out There Somewhere?".

24 minutes long, and you savour every single second. You're thrown in all directions emotionally, and are more than happy to be flung.

Simply incredible.

For me Orbital would be one of the most overrated artists in the electronic scene. I am not saying this to get a rise out of fans etc etc their live shows are great not doubt but 95% of their musically output has always left me underwhelmed. I am listening to the first album now and when I compare it to fellow 1991 albums like Ex:el, The Orb's Adventures....its fairly low on the ideas front. Brown album was ok but again for 93 it was nowhere near as strong as many albums from a year earlier, they caught up slightly with Snivilisation but still their were so many albums by unknowns that killed it on the ideas front. I don't dislike them I just rate so many others way ahead of them thats all.
On a really petty note I also never dug their snares much either.

I saw them in small theater in Denver when I was kid. 90 minutes of pure bliss:-) Right now I am listening to Go With the Flo and feeling.

Blood is no doubt thicker than water, the Hartnoll brothers split up in 2004, then reunited in 2009, then split up again in 2014, and reunited for a second time in January 2017 and are doing many live shows this summer of 2017 :-)

The Hartnoll brothers will always be remembered for being true electronic music pioneers. :-)

With an ear for delicate electronic textures and earth-shattering breaks, Orbital became an unrivaled force in dance music in the 1990s. As likely to drop a crass sample as a gently caressing synthline, their elaborate tracks are orchestrated with incredible attention to minute detail but often fit into the greater whole of an album's worth of material. They move from chill room atmospheres of tickling rhythms and feather-light melodies to ripping beats that rebound against frazzled synthlines.
Orbital never descend into New Age fluff or hardcore macho aggression. While their tracks are exacting demonstrations of studio mastery and performance wit, they achieve equilibrium between mindful headphone music and kinetic body inspiration. Phil and Paul Hartnoll's final release as Orbital is 2004's Blue Album.
