Album Review

Techno's best albums act finally gets their very own singles collection, though the results fall just short of displaying the brilliance and grandeur of Orbital's decade of great work. Fortunately, about 75 percent of Work 1989-2002 turns out exactly as it should: great versions of their best material, including their 1990 breakout "Chime" and the parade of excellent singles like "Halcyon and On and On," "Lush," "Belfast," "Impact," and "Are We Here?."

It'll never replace Orbital 2 or Snivilisation, but Work 1989-2002 does most of what it's supposed to.

Though Phil and Paul Hartnoll first charted with a single, the 1990 British Top 20 hit "Chime,"...
