Pour ne rien vous cacher, cet album m'a donné envie d'ingurgiter plusieurs cachets d'ecstasy et de danser au milieu d'une foule de personnes baignées dans leur sueur.

It's great. How did they make all these sounds? Was going to mark down for a bad car journey with Mike, but it's brilliant. One of the first albums that hit me away from guitars...

As a fan of Steve Reich (thanks Miles) I liked the phased intro and outro songs. Generally a great album and a step on the way to "Chill Lo-Fi Beats to Study and Relax To" playlists so I'm a fan. Glad to hear this album.

I'm sure there is a through line from Brian Eno, to Orbital, to the techno I listened to college and beyond. There was a moment while listening to this that I kind of wanted to go back and listen to Brian Eno again to see how it compared to this. But I quickly thought better of it. Unlike Eno, Orbital builds and layers in a way that feels rewarding. (I think, again I'm kind of blocking Eno out and I'm not ready to undo that.) Yes, sometimes certain segments drag on too long, but overall I liked Orbital. It was vaguely familiar at times, but I couldn't figure out if I'd heard this or just similar early house/electronica. Happy to have this on as background music.

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was one of my favorite shows. The original one. I've been writing reviews so I don't have much time to watch the new one, but I hear it's good. Though I never listed to Orbital in the 90's this is a huge throwback for me. My pacifier and glowsticks, oversized pants, pigtails, pumas and DANCING! Oh, how I loved Special K and dancing. Anyway, this is a huge throwback and I did enjoy listening to this.

Shocked this is 1993. I kept thinking about Prodigy’s Firestarter. That was 1996. So this is really novel stuff for that time.

It's bad when the first song has me looking at the time left to make sure I don't have to listen to it for too long; "Time Becomes" is a terrible opening song to this album. The repetitive lyric thing gets old real quick, and I was dismayed when it happened again in the second song, which actually had some interesting beats, and the final song. As the album went on, however, I found my attention waning; the songs and the beats just didn't grab me, certainly not enough to enjoy listening for over an hour. Perhaps it's just dated, because I can see why people would have liked it at the time; I just can't get into it now. "Halcyon and On and On" was probably the best song on the album.

This album sounds how I imagine a tofu + dragonfruit salad would taste. It's literally nothing. This is a toddler playing with FL Studio presets for an hour. I think listening to white noise is a more thrilling experience than this.

Ya vi que esta va a ser una ultra-unpopular opinion, pero el disco realmente me gustó. Cierto, tiene cosas muy raras empezando por la primera y la última canción, pero me parece una propuesta muy atrevida y original para la época. Me resulta muy interesante que UK fuera la cuna de esto a la par del Britpop y el Punk, pero a la vez como que también encaja. Su música me recuerda a The Prodigy, pero también a música electrónica más “reciente”, como Paul Van Dyk y Moby. Por la época en que salió este álbum y el éxito que tuvo, creo que se podría asumir que el álbum tuvo influencia importante sobre el género de la electrónica. Identifico algo más en la música de este disco, y sé que decirlo va a ser controversial: siento que aplica una fórmula similar a lo que años antes hizo Pink Floyd (Wish you were here / Animals), sólo que con electrónica en lugar de rock: las canciones toman una melodía base y realizan una progresión sobre la misma, logrando extender la duración sin aburrir, pero hay que estar poniendo atención. En la página de Wikipedia hay una cita de una reseña que dice que “este album se beneficia tras escucharlo múltiples veces”, y coincido. Lo escuché tres veces en total, y cada vez lo disfruté más.

It's February 1994 and I am at a spontaneous illegal rave on a beach near La Perouse. I am dancing in the ocean the water up to my thighs. The sun is just coming up on the horizon as the cops come to tell us to move on. Apart from a few sculls of goon on the drive there mind is not altered in any way, just vibing to the beats and rhythm coming off the sound system. I'm not sure if even anything off this album was playing that night, which was mostly local doof DJs but listening to this album evokes the memories of that night. I still love listening to the Orb, this album threading the sacred ground between anthem and come down music. Best played through my headphones at a volume not right for my damaged ear drums.

Electronic music like this is not something I listen to very often, or really at all, at least not on purpose, but I like this one. I don't know anything about how this kind of music is made, which is maybe why it feels less accessible to me; however, this album has some interesting elements, like sampling of movie quotes that fit well with the feel of the music. Even though I doubt I'll listen to this or any electronic music all that regularly, at least not now, I am glad I got to hear it.

Listening to this felt like a chore. I can absolutely see how groundbreaking and influential this album was. Its influence over electronic music in the 90s is clear. But this feels like the music in a concentrated form, like runway fashion vs what ends up in department stores. I guess it's not a genre that I have ever been into and what is left just reminds me of the electronic pop that came in the later 90s - and I'm not ready to be reminded of that yet. So yeah, the album deserves its place on the list but it's not something I would otherwise enjoy listening to.

There are signs of the genius of Orbital on this early '90s album, but the sound feels rather outdated and the melodies are too repetitive to really enjoy this. The looping trickery on the opening and closing tracks was interesting, though.

Genre: Techno 3/5 A truly inoffensive Techno album from the 90s. Orbital, a couple of Brits, go ahead and produce some of the most boring, yet beautiful, electronic music I’ve heard in a while. A rather heavy emphasis on the ambient side of things more so than the heavy big beat sound which was becoming popularized at that time. Lush 3-1 is good and there are a few other minor highlights, but none too interesting, and everything is all very cohesive, but the overall vibe doesn’t reach beyond a mild head bob. Maybe for a slow workout, or if you need a chill, accessible Techno album while you work, but this was much more “easy listening” than I had anticipated.

Make sure your suits are buttoned up tight and your oxygen tanks are full- and you better bring some extra canisters- because you’re invited to dance amongst the stars with two of Techno’s finest space ambient artists: the English duo Orbital. I love me some Ambient music, man. And while mine leans more toward the likes of the non-tempo sort (Steve Reich, ie) I still enjoyed this LP very much, beats and all. And that’s really where 'Orbital 2' is coming from, it’s all about the beats. Seems to be a bit of a concept album, too, bookending the space rave with words on loop (‘Time becomes’), but subtly morphing into a slightly different phrase (the opening number ended with the words, ‘For time becomes a loop.’) The technique itself, in which two identical samples are repeated at slightly different speeds, was coincidentally popularized by Steve Reich. Thus, the entire LP seems to be a very creative artistic representation of ‘the theory of the Mobius, a twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop.’ And that’s what you get, in spades/space, on 'Orbital 2': lots of synthesized beats, excellent syncopation (‘Lush 3-1,’ ie), good use of dynamics (wish there had been just a bit more, but I’m just being picky), some great drone instruments like sitar and didgeridoo, echoed vocals, and all looped into one dynamite techno package. Orbital indeed. I’ll certainly loop back around to this one again.

The opening is a bit rough, song one and the first minute of song two are just spoken bits with a computerized voice. The voice is just repeating a phrase over and over again too, so there's nothing there but hearing a line. This happens again later in the album too. When the music is actually playing, it's very good ambient electronic and I liked having it on while I worked. Song 1, and the very end of Song 2 are jarring and take away from the quality of the album. Lush 3-1,Lush 3-2, and Monday are highlights. I'm on the fence on rating this one. How they decided to have the opening and closing tracks be this annoying, lazy, no-effort put a sentence on a loop thing boggles my mind. Everything in the middle is pretty solid, and you have some great music in there but the album has decided to piss you off at the start and risk you turning it off before getting to the music, or you actually listen to it and then it pisses you off at the end and kills the vibe you just built. I'll rate it 3, I really enjoyed the actual music on this album, they're lucky I'm not in a bad mood or this would be a 1 or 2 just for having those asinine first and last tracks.

1.5 | Más Techno... Del mismo grupo???? Insisto... no es que tenga nada en particular contra el género. Sí puede tener su lugar y no es que sea un disco 100% sin mérito pero creo puedo repetir casi lo mismo que dije del primero. No le veo el caso en la lista, no propone nada tan distinto de cualquier otro artista competente del género como para estar en la lista y ahora mucho menos como para decir que merece DOS lugares en la misma. Sin mucho que decir, competente, pudiera funcionar de música de fondo en situaciones específicas... nada más. De verdad lo que sí siento es que es casi un desperdicio/abuso dar dos lugares al mismo grupo y a dos discos que básicamente te los puedo poner en shuffle y no podrías realmente diferenciar uno de otro.

You know, electronica back to back is not a good thing. Any genre back to back likely isn't good for this list. Need to cleanse the palate. The problem with Orbital is that they repeat everything so quickly (e.g., some phrase or beat on loop). It's mind numbing. Kraftwerk at least paused for a bit before coming back to the same phrases. And their beats didn't feel so incessant or monotonous. Planet of the Shapes had some really cool beats but it lacked variation or it didn't layer in its beats well. It's like they have one dominant beat and that drowns out everything else - it's all you can hear and it just repeats. More variation in pacing, timing, and beats is needed - in almost all songs. I think if I was in solitary confinement and you played this album I would go crazy after about two revolutions. I don't think I could play this album as background music to a party unless that party was a rave. Its inferiority is glaringly obvious when placed next to Kraftwerk.

Time and again this site has served me turn-of-the-90s UK electronica, and it's still yet to make an impression on me. I try to not generalize about music, but I can completely understand why music from this period gets slammed for being so repetitive. for being so repetitive for being so repetitive for being so repetitive boom-boom-boom-snap so repetitive boom-boom-boom-snap so repetitive boom-boom-boom-snap so repetitive

It's very easy to hate on electronic music. All the things that make music great, the timing, the tonality of live instruments, the play of expected vs. unexpected changes and sounds, improvisation, and the slight imperfections that make something sound organic just don't come across in a mathematical sequence. Things have improved somewhat since the early 9s when this came out but it's still about as emotional as interacting with a pissed off microwave.

Dawno tak nie pokaralo gatunkiem z gatunku tych najtrudniej przyswajalnych, czyli chodzi o odmiane elektroniki zwana powszechnie techniawa, orbital 2 jak sama nazwa wskazuje bedzie drugim albumem studyjnym grupy o nazwie orbital, ktora jest duetem braci Hartnoll, ich imiona to Phil i Paul, jak przystalo na standardy listy orbitale musza byc oczywiscie rezydentami wyspiarskimi, bo jakze inaczej moze byc, nie jest to pierwszy i pewnie nie ostatni album elektroniczny podczas tego forsowania listy, ale jest to jeden z tych pickow od ktorego zupelnie sie odbilem podczas odsluchu, techniawa, ale nie wiksiarska, tylko inteligentniusia techniawa, dla wysublimowanych gustow koneserow muzyki elektroniczej, ktorej nie potrafie zrozumiec, cecha charakterystyczna brzmienia duetu na tym materiale bedzie bogaty sampling, juz pierwszy trak rozpoczyna sie sampelem z star treka time becomes a loop, ktory oczywiscie jest zlupowany przez prawie dwie minuty z letkim jego opoznieniem przy loopie, takie przesuniecie sampla w czasie okresia sie jakp phasing, z tego zabiegu kompozycyjnego mocno czerpia braciszkowie, przez co juz po pierwszych 5 minutach odsluchu mialem dosc, a nie jest to dobry omen, gdy plyta ma godzine i piec minut dlugosci i 10 trakow, kawalki lushowe kojarza mi sie z trancowym klimatem, ktory kontynuuje swa obecnosc na nastepne piosenki, bo kawalki wydaja sie byc ze soba zespawane tak jakby orbital drugi byl jednym wielkim songiem, ktory jest do konsumpcji w calosci, na co trzeba miec mocny zoladek muzyczny, cale szczescie, ze to juz ponad 250 piczek, wiec zahartowanie pozwolilo dosluchac albumu do konca i z czystym sumieniem jestem w stanie stwierdzic, ze nadal nie rozumiem tego gatunku, a rzadkie przepadki, jak z juno reactor, nie objawily sie jeszcze na liscie, songiem ktory najmniej mnie zabolal byl impact, ktory jest takze najdluzszym utworem plyty, a sample sa calkowicie niezrozumiale i niezbyt obszerne przez co nie tak odczuwalne, wiec leci na plejke lofikowych, zeby jakis slad po tym orginalnym elektronicznym projekcie orbitalowym nie zaginal, okladka faktycznie wyglada jak cos co mogloby byc orbitalowe

Really dull with repetitive samples looped for 6 minutes and called a song. Maybe worked in the clubs back in the day but pointless as a home listen

A bit more musical than some other electronic albums I've heard, and not just annoying noise. Expect the intro and outro which are so annoying, don't understand why you would want to annoy the listener at the start and end of an album, which makes it a 1 star not 2 for me.

What is this???? I don't understand this at all. I disliked the repetition of words in the first track and that put me off the rest of the album. I'm not a stranger to eletronica but this is too out of left field for me.
