Had the album on heavy rotation over the weekend and today at work, got to say it's bloody good. Not in the league of classic Orbtial though (what is? :P ) but a very decent electronic/folky album if that's yer bag.

I cant say that it is doing anything for me at the moment. Fair enough I have only listened to it a few times, but it doesn't really float my boat. I think the Ideal Condition was a better album in my opinion.
Surprised to see "Please" on there too, that seemed a strange choice.
I'm not giving up on it, but I have also just bought the new Bjork, Prodigy and Scuba albums and also Syro by Aphex Twin which I must say that I'm enjoying them all the moment.
I don't know you people...why are you here?

Live orbital cd from their last festival tour
This also arrived yesterday, it pretty poor. Nothing to do with the hartnoll boys but which ever company produced it. First on the box it says from 2008 when its a 2012 gig, then the sound is poor and the tracks are separated at strange points, like track three will be straight sun and half of Beelzedub which the next track will be other half and never. Poor production unfortunately.
