I’ve had this album since May 1996 and it has never ceased to amaze me. One of the best electronic albums of all time. FFRR must reissue it for the current generation of listeners.

This album shows Orbital at their best; having moved on from the more stripped-down techno/trance-vibes of their previous albums and moving on to wider (greener?) soundscape pastures. And speaking of green, if I remember the liner notes correctly, this whole album was recorded using solar energy! Orbital were already thinking ahead in 1996. Though I have never been a fan of that cover art, probably why I bought the limited box release (TRUCD 10, 828 763-2) instead...

have no other option than confirm what everybody already said.
this is for me and for many the best experimental electronic album ever made.
and this original pressing is second best to none! this is the heavy heavy monster sound!
i was lucky enough to bought VG+/VG+ copy few years ago, when prices were yet 2 digits.

Out There Somewhere Parts 1 and 2 - pure electro darkness. Honestly, to this day it still gives me a weird combination of goosebumps and existential dread!

It is indeed very strange that this album has not been reissued. Especially considering it's the pinnacle of Orbital's work, with each song a masterpiece (the highlight obviously being the outstanding Out There Somewhere?).

I would even go as far as to say that this album was the height of Orbital's critical acclaim while also being the peak of their commercial success. While they were never "Big Beat", this album arrived just at the time bands like The Chemical Brothers were breaking out (and of course The Prodigy releasing Fat Of The Land). So their decision to make In Sides wholly breakbeat (ditching their earlier Techno stylings) really propelled them into the Big Beat scene even though this album isn't really anything to do with that sound.

A 25th anniversary reissue is due. Come on, whoever owns the rights. Do it!

As others have stated, just bizarre that such a well-known classic has never been reissued. So many people would die for a copy of this but can't afford it!

Very good Orbilal album with their soft techno, tinged with electro and sometimes IDM. A flawless album, listenable from beginning to end without interruption. Well representative of this flourishing period of 1996.

Probably the best electronic album (at least of this sub genre) which is a must have on vinyl, with each "side" representing on each 6 occasions, pure genius work.

I am a electronic music lover from since i was a teenager but just recently discovered this album ... it truly is one of the most fascinating albums in the electronic dance genre as far as i am concerned.

One of the best electronic albums ever made and surprisingly accessible. Varied, yet cohesive, and melodic yet complex. It's fluid sounding and doesn't suffer at all for it's lack of vocals. Can't recommend this album enough (but where's the vinyl reissue??)
