iTunes Review

The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld is less an album than a magical place—like Narnia or Wonderland, but easier to get to (and get lost in). House grooves and hip-hop breaks provide the gently funky underpinning for undulating waves of sound: hazy synths, dub bass, field recordings, and brain-teasing snippets of movie dialogue. The Steve Reich-sampling "Little Fluffy Clouds" is a rave-defining anthem, and the epic closer will have you dreaming in colors you never knew existed.

"Classic" Electronica

This album by the Orb is already a classic for electronica fans-- This album blends non-formulaic ambient electronica and dub with a healthy dose of super-fun and original samples. If you're unfamiliar with this album, think of The Orb as the 90's equivilant of Pink Floyd with a splash of Tangerine Dream, Brian Eno, and other ambient electronica. Mix this with beats that helped create the modern techno sound and this is the Orb. This album came out as a single album in the U.S., but the Double Album is where the ideas are fully developed. Definantly worth having the entire disk.


0 stars for itunes.....5 for ULTRAWORLD.......i've had this on vinyl since 91 and unfortunately it is A: INCOMPLETE....and B:NOT IN ORDER which is essential for both ULTRAWORLD and u.f.ORB albums....both albums were released sequenced with tracks mixing into each other...Paterson and gang took us on a flowing journey which unfortunately is not here.....go buy it at your local cd shop if you have to cuz this album is brilliant...i couldn't tell you which was better tho cuz u.f.ORB is just as fantastic

A true ambient/techno classic

If you want the defining album of the ambient/techno genre - this is it. I first heard this album when it was released in 1994 and it blew me away with its creativity, uniqueness, excellent melodies and tricky beats. The sampling is done in such a superb way that it weaves the entire CD into a complete story. Today, in 2006, I still pull this album out on a regular basis. You will not be dissapointed with this purchase. Be wary - this is The Orb's defining work. All other The Orb albums will not compare to this true masterpiece.


Formed: 1989 in London, England

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

The Orb virtually invented the electronic genre known as ambient house, resurrecting slower, more soulful rhythms and providing a soundtrack for early-morning ravers once the clubs closed their doors. The group popularized the genre as well, by appearing on the British chart show Top of the Pops and hitting number one in the U.K. with the 1992 album U.F.Orb. Frontman Dr. Alex Paterson's formula was quite simple: he slowed down the rhythms of classic Chicago house and added synth work and effects...
