Fat Roland's top ten comfort listens - 9: Orbital's In Sides

Number 9 in my top ten comfort-listens is Orbital's In Sides.

Album nameIn Sides

Artist: Orbital

Who they sound like according to Spotify's recommendations: Underworld, The Future Sound Of London, The Orb (pretty lazy if you ask me)

Most comforting musical element: The climax of Out There Somewhere

Least comforting musical element: The creaking of The Box, which is even more scary on the 12", I mean, seriously, I've not been near a box since

What it's like being smothered by (in a good way): An avalanche of leaflets from the Green Party warning us of the impending climactic doom suggested by the album, but, y'know, with a list of useful tips like switching off your tap when washing your balls

Comfort food it should be paired with: A lovely refuse skip of discarded hummus sandwiches

Public figure I would recommend this album to so they can chill the heck out: Jeremy chuffing Clarkson, who should be made to listen to this while driving an electric car

What the opposite of this album sounds like: A green and pleasant land, like out of that song
