More adventures beyond the Ultraworld!

"Hard to believe this hasn't been reviewed yet. I've owned this album for many years and it is a mainstay in my Orb collection. Seeing how expensive and rare it has become makes me count by blessing that I got it when I did.
Basically what you have here are more ambient mixes of 6 tracks from the Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld album with 2 mixes of Spanish Castles for a total of 7 tracks. Over an hour of floaty ambient trancy bliss. There was a time when I thought this was even better than TOABTU, but years later I have to say I think the orginal is the best. This is still a great album and a must for Orb and trance fans, but it doesn't have quite the same cohesion and flow that the original does. Still, it is a solid 4 stars--not a classic but still an experience well worth having. Putting this on as a continuaton of the TOABTU album is quite a listening experience.
It will take you beyond the Ultraworld and back. ;^]"
An ambient classic

"The Orb's Aubrey Mixes - Ultraworld Excursions are (in my opinion) the best they have produced, and is better than the original TOABTU that they come from. It does need some listening to."
