Info

The second album came out just as Europe started to really come out and subject themselves to Orbital. The joking bros decided to start the second album exactly the same way as the first album started. "There is this theory of the Moebious...". and if that wasnt enough they started "Planet of the Shapes" with a crackling intro (i wonder how many Vinyl owners were checking their records when they heard it).

A lot of the Orbital heads out there class this as their favourite...maybe it was their first taste of Orbital. Its the most danceable Orbital album and i even heard one person call it a "Rave" album (not too sure of that).

Highlights of the album has to be "Impact (The Earth Is Burning)" (the original release that spanned 2 million reworkings and is STILL a favourite on the live set), "Lush 3-2" (Debut vocals from Kirsty Hawkshaw that made the Lush track what it is), "Planet of the Shapes" (a gem) and "Halcyon + On + On" ( a slight re-working of the Ep release which captures the ambient like textures from P&Ps head

Media Reviews
'As warm as plasma and as eerie as ectoplasm' - NME

'Lush 3.1 - is a tantalising shimmer-swirl of synth textures that feel as sensual as sprin rain.' - NME

'Lush 3.2 - introduces an ethereal girl-voice whose extasy could be either ecclesiastrical or sexual, an unearthly horn-section and a rubbery bass like that what itches in the bloodstream.' - NME

'Lush - Built on a crunchy dramatic bass foundations and glowing with splashes of intermitant colour.' - Select Magazine

'Halcyon - is the flipside of the hardcore attitude, a shimmering dream-like embrace that repeats a backwards-looped sample of Opus IIIs Its a Fine Day over eleven minutes of mantric Orbital house' - Select Magazine
