Not a must have and certainly not combining the brilliance of the Orb and Floyd in a way that 1 + 1 = 2. As always The Orb are interesting but there are 4-5 albums I would have before this one.

Added a new entry with 0158 as the number along with 'National Press'. All under a separate entry.

This release did grow on me after a few years and not that I ever put headphones on to listen to music apart from when I'm out running, but I have to say that I enjoy the second disc a lot more than disc one (the metallic side is also longer?!) - maybe it's even better w headphones? I'll probably never try that as I really can't stand headphones at home.
Also, being an orb head, I just had to get the extra tracks, and, "The Cult Of Youth Ambient Mix" is the best track on the whole set, so no idea why this is only to be found on this Japanese import.

Just got this LP. Didn't even realize I was playing at the wrong speed until I got here and saw the labels erroneously list the playing speed at 33.3 when it's actually cut at 45RPM. Shows how much i listen to ambient music.

Okay please tell me someone else noticed the sampling of "Klingklang" by Kraftwerk in the second half of Metallic Side.

This is a rather good album, especially since Orb fans have been begging to see a "Pink Floyd" collaboration for a long time. I've rated the Japanese copy lower than I would have liked since the videos that are included are painfully small in scale and low resolution. It's 1990s RealPlayer small,which is pretty ridiculous by today's standards. The bonus tracks are great.

Amazing record it took a few plays but once I got into it it just got better and better. And being a long term fan of The Orb and Pink Floyd was worried that the sum of the two parts wouldn't be equal to them separately but needn't have worried this is wonderful.

Just got my hands on this Promo and it's different and much better mix of the official release. A must for any Orb Fan.

Wonderful! Mixture of warm beats generated by Alex Paterson and dreamy, psychedelic guitar of David Gilmour. Strongly recommended to all fans of trippy music!
