    Classic will still be being discovered by future generations long after more complex overburdened recent tunes are dead and buried.

      This is my favourite Orbital track and for sure my favourite Guerilla release. It's very similar to some other excellent Orbital tracks like "The box", "Omen/Open mind", "Lush 3" or even "Oola" and differs a lot to some other Orbital tracks like the overrated and overplayed "Chime".
      "Alchemy" here is one of the better produced tracks by Orbital with a nice mellody, excellent electronic sounds, and optimistic strings after the middle. If you want to own just one Orbital electronic track, this should be the one.

        very much of its time, I'm not sure if anyone would drop this in a set now, it sounds simplistic. Four rather unsurprising remixes, plod their way through as the backing to a melodic riff (which has probably stuck in most dance heads from those days like a bad commercial). For me its the Alchemy (Phasers On Stun) mix which remains timeless if a little tired. Other Drum Club releases had more happening, but its one for the Guerilla collection. Buy 'Live in Iceland' instead.
