Great early/rare sounds from The Orb

"This is a valuable release for fans of The Orb, especially their early sound. The booklet is very informative on the early history of the band and has a very detailed discography of all Orb-related releases. The two tracks on the CD are both AWESOME - both very spacy and about 15-20 minutes long each - and are the best way to hear the development of The Orb's trademark Ambient House sound. It's actually closer to the sound of The KLF's first album, CHILL OUT (one track features Jimmy Kauty before he split to form The KLF). The music is like listening to a late-night DJ mix on your radio's coolest college station. The sound is slightly rough, but if you like this sort of music you probably won't care. It's definitely worth a listen."
