#478 - "The Orb's Adventures In The Ultraworld" - The Orb
"Ambient House for the E Generation" was an earlier mission statement for The Orb, before they brought out this, their debut. Truer words were never spoken. A wide wash of chemical drug use hangs around this album, ecstasy for the all-night ravers and bright sunshine acid for the headphone set. Under the right circumstances, the first time you hear this album can be a revelation, especially one you reach the blown-out end of the second disc, "A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Center Of The Ultraworld", which is 18 minutes worth of pure mindfuckery. As long as your in the mood to take a journey, this one can take you anywhere.
Where You'd Know It From: If you've ever taken acid, you've heard this album, whether you recognize it or not. Also, it's a rave scene classic, chillout at it's finest.
