Metallic Spheres

Metallic Spheres is the product of a "ambient-techno" duo The Orb and David Gilmour, guitarist of Pink Floyd.
The album is a nice mix of Gilmour's gracious guitar work and The Orb's ambient sounds. If this were an effort by The Orb alone I wouldn't have listened to it, and would probably think it to be poor, but Gilmour's input as both a musician and writer really show through and make this album a highly enjoyable listen.

As well as the regular 1CD version, there is a 2CD version of the album, the second disc containing a version mixed in "3D60", a new technology allowing listeners to use stereo earphones to hear the album in 3D sound. The album is also available on limited edition vinyl with alternative artwork (pictured right).
