"a frenetic feast for the fans"

"... that's what the sticker said when I found this CD. If you are an Orbital worshiper (like me), than you will find this album essential for your collection. Reworkings of "Impact" and "Attached" are all here, along with several mixes of "Lush", including the Euro-Tunnel Disaster Mix mixed with "Walk About" live on Peel Sessions. Basically selected tracks from "2" remixed. I particularly enjoyed "Lush (Underworld)", a 13-minute remix by Underworld, featuring electric guitar and flute. And even though it's an "EP", its just as long as a full length album. Add yet another Orbital CD to your collection that you can praise fully."
Diversions is just more, great Orbital!!!

"This is a remix album, or as Orbital says Diversions. If you really like Orbital 2 or If you don't have it STOP reading this and get it NOW! Orbital 2 fans will love this remix disc of the songs. Lush 3(Euro Tunnel Disaster '94) is the best track hands down. Its 10 min of just fast and rhythmic techno. Another great track is Lush 3-3(Underworld). These two songs alone make Diversions another great Orbital CD all should have. This disk will satisfy anyone's need for GOOD techno music."
One up on The Brown Album. | St. John's, NF, Canada | 02/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Orbital's Diversions was released shortly after the Brown Album, and it is far superior. There's another version of Impact USA here, and the added synths and smart beats are gloriously programmed. The track runs over 11 minutes and I'm thankful for that. Underworld, Psychick Warriors of Gaia, and CJ Bolland are found in the mix, and Underworld's 'Lush 3-3' is a travel-techno genius of a track which builds slowly and fades equally effectively over it's 13 minute span. The quiet minimal percussion found on 'Semi-Detached' complements the slow progressing synthesizers well. It's a very chilled track that never becomes boring. There's only 6 tracks on Diversions, though all but one are in the range of 10 minutes long or more. There are very few releases that can have lengthy tracks like this, be heard in your armchair or on the dancefloor, and hold up so amazing well as Diversions does."
