The Orblivion tour at Roseland Ball Room (RIP Roseland) in NYC with the live Drummers and Bass Players was pretty Amaze balls too!
One of the greatest electronic music duos ever!

This song sounds like it should be played at the beginning of a basketball game

That synchs well.
Mesmerising and expansive {#Dancingbanana}Love it
Brought a smile, following "Cities in Dust"; The similarity between the intro to that and the jangly keyboard sound on this one.
Oh fantastic :)

Listening to this on a Saturday afternoon is awesome.

Going to see The Orb @Bluedot2018 festival in a couple of months, so excited :)
Freakin out man.
nice rhythmic beat....
Brought a smile to my face! "Now wait a minute ..."
Not bad but you play this too much. Grtz

Good song for the Great Eclipse of 2017!
classic !
loved it then .... love it now
Funky song, but I like it!
Something to drive the masses grooving way out in Deep Playa on Labor Day Weekend.
Sublime. Yes. . . obviously for some that is difficult to understand, but there you have it. I love my musical taste!

Surely you can find something more to your liking elsewhere...?
Unfortunately I was too old and stiff for dancefloors when this music was up-to-date. I'm sure it was stunning. {#Bananajumprope}
The second song in a row on RP with bell/chime sounds...nice

That's clever and right on!

I'm partial to the "Fila Brazilia Mix" of this song that's on one of those compilations I bought back in the late 90s, but it's always good to hear a little of The Orb.

So glad for PSD.
trippy followup to the Banshees


quite a listening 'experience' !
A little stealing from Depeche Mode, Route 66.
This is the sound track of my bike ride to work in the morning.

  I do like a bit of Orb, and this one is hopelessly addictive.

I've not heard that clip at the start before, and it made me smile. It's from the (in)famous Marrow Song (lyrics, YouTube video with Kenneth Williams), an old example of British innuendo from the days when nothing that even vaguely hinted at sexual activity could be mentioned in song. Quite what it has to do with the song I've no idea, but what the flip, it's fun :o)

Musicianship? Dunno, but who gives a toss - this number is more fun than a barrelful of monkeys.
everytime I hear this , this image goes into my brain.
why Mr. Music why ?

Love it :){#Good-vibes} many happy memories of seeing these guys in concert back in the early 90s. And no - it's not a song, its an aural landscape :D
It does seem as though many commenters have a very narrow definition of music. 
This is a glorious soundscape.

Dr. Alex Patterson was a manical genius of 90's techno!
Fun! Reminds me of old Tangerine Dream/trance stuff from the 80s and 90s.

I never stated that this song constituted "musicianship" - I think you just made that conclusion up all by yourself.  All songs need not be examples of 'musicianship' - most of the popular music catalog probably is not.  By the way, I've played musical instruments for over forty years as well.

Hmmm. Well. Not sure how this strikes me upon hearing it again, although I generally appreciate The Orb.

I know it may be difficult for you but there is a difference between advocating violence and exposing social problems. Listen more, think more, hate less.

Omg!!! Such a blast from the past... so loved this one when it came out.. showed that the orb could do faster catchier stuff too
Love this song... one of the first techno groups I got into back in the day.  I miss this era of techno!

Take out the word "mindless" and the answer is yes. It's the mindfulness that makes musicianship, not the instrument. You can strum a guitar as mindlessly as any sequencer, or squeeze an accordion.

This tune is made better to me by the level of annoyance that people hold for it.  I wonder how many of these "purists" have ever even held a musical instrument, much less, learned to play one.

I might like this song in another moment, but right now at my desk, tying to work, had to press mute- let me know when it over and we return to our regularly scheduled programming.

This is great song to run to. Nice vibe all around.
