The Orb......Metallic Spheres


This recording may not appeal to a lot of you, but if you want to listen to something that will strut your systems stuff, listen to this. The sound stage is very wide and deep and there is some very low bass in it that will make your speakers dig deep. It sounds a lot like early Pink Floyd with a lot of sounds and just people noodling with their instruments, in fact, David Gilmour joined The Orb for this recording. It’s a great way to spend 49 minutes.

Thanks, this is interesting. Plenty of bass for sure. Wish my main system did depth better but I think room issues (symmetry problems due to open doorways on one side) are the main cause. I've given up obsessing about it and just enjoy what I have. Since I've had Tidal I love using their 'Explore' option and listening to artists I've never heard of, Charles Lloyd as an example. I very much disagree with those who say no good music is being made these days.  
The Orb is cool, but probably not for the masses.  I have a few of their recordings and just picked up a few of their CD's on my last trip to the record store.  It's been a while since I listened to this one.
"The Orb is cool, but probably not for the masses."

Yeah, that's what appeals to me. Can't wait to check them out.
I’m about 3 minutes into Metallic Spheres. I will definitely be listening to it in it’s entirety. Very cool! 
I listened to it at work yesterday.  Played at fairly low volume and my office system is not the best setup for bass, soundstage, etc.  I played a few minutes of it on my system last night and the house started shaking.  I better play that one a little earlier in the day so as not to upset the neighbors.
Baclagg thanks, I like ambient "house" music. have you tried Shpongle???
The Orb's Adventures beyond the Ultraworld was a game changer for me back in the 90's. Opened the door to Underworld, Roald Velden, and others.
Going to stream this next.
Nobody in so can crank it up.
Thanks
@tuberist    I had not tried Shpongle until now. I listened to a couple of cuts on Youtube. Very similar style to The Orb. Thanks for mentioning them!
Sorry but not my cup of tea at all.
Hey I tried.
But would be a very boring world if we all liked the same stuff.
Thanks for bringing it to members attention though.

Funny I just heard this for the first time. It's definitely a good companion piece to roger waters amused to death.
