But how are you supposed to listen to it? And what do you say to your friends afterwards? 'Nice bit of stereo balancing? You can try making it the context - make it the soundtrack to your bath, or a car ride through the country - or you can perch on the edge of your Parker Knoll and play spot the sample ('Ooh, there goes a bit of Can. . . .'), but neither are very satisfying. There are no little fluffy clouds in this one. It's much harder work than that. This is their least straightforwardly rhythmical record to date, so dancing is out of the question, unless you're double-jointed. Even when the Orb play live, people tend to lie down. The only thing left to do is to create your own commentary as the record goes along. Talk all over it. Apparently, it's already being played on Radio 1.
