I’ve just got to say that ORBVS TERRARVM is definitely one of the best albums of the 1990’s… at least in my opinion, anyway.

From an enlightened Amazon reviewer:

“This disc is more akin to an orchestral suite than a techno album. Its breadth and scope surpass ANYTHING that popular music could possibly bring you. Mix the tone poems of Debussy, motifs such as Ravel’s “Bolero,” and the abstract architectures of Bach. Throw in the pastoral setting of Beethoven’s 6th. Add in the timelessness of Indonesian gamelan music. Now, play it on synthesizers and samplers, adding just enough levity to keep the listener rapt and prevent it from becoming pretentious. The end result would be something like ‘Orbvs Terrarvm.'”

True dat.
