anyone else really has a passion for it as well?

this has got to be one of my favorite ambient records ever.

 

while listening to it today i found that The Lights of Baton Rouge Pass By has Pacific State playing really smoothly in the background. nice detail, really goes well with the song.

Wichita Lineman Was A Song I Once Heard is probably my favorite. The pads and synths are beyond what is possible to be explained.

 

 

wish i could experience listening to it in a setting like the one shown in the cover...

I've a passion for it as well, really does what the title suggests. Especially in silent nights, after shower with a mug full of coffee or when appropriately tipsy. The cover also ranks high in my lists, can't think of an image that would suit the mood better.

 

9/10

Never heard this before I have to say. Reminds me a little of FSOL. Come to think of its got a bit of 'Bush of Ghosts' influence in there too.

how genuine is this?

 

it was genuinely made by a fan just after the original chill-out came out, with decks, dats and cassettes. it's not made by the klf or the orb.

Yeah, it paved the way for stuff like Lifeforms, and the early Orb records (what with Alex being on there and all).

Great album. I wish there was more stuff out there like it.

Listened to a lot of this back in the day, like once a day.. Got it in vinyl just recently.

 

Actually when I was a teenager I wrote a short story for school based on the album where a guy starts a road journey in an old cop car down the places mentioned in the track titles. Also the radio news bit about the teenager crashing his car was included in the story. He then ends up doing mescaline in the desert or something like that. For some reason I got full points from the teacher..

 

Edit: Although when I read back the story a few years later I was hella embarassed. Terrible.

it's a classic. I love it.

 

edit:not your short story mokz, although you should probably post it for shits n' giggles.

i love this album very much, but i also feel that some of the other stuff they did was better. both as music, and conceptually.

 

the orb's adventures beyond the ultraworld and space - space (jimi cauty) are good companions to have, all three sorta sprung from the same source.

      A bit more about Doctor Who than the book, but it's interesting to see the connections the pioneering duo had to the series.

      What's the story with this group? After seeing the white room pop up on various must-have-in-eletronic lists I finally decided to check it out. It's like fresh fettucini with a sprinkle of parmesan. Gets me pumped for a battle with jon claude van damme. I heard they disbanded after this album and an insane performance involving sheeps blood. Anything obscure worth checking out?
