15. The Orb - Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld (1991)
Although Alex Paterson's electronica outfit rose to fame at the height of the house boom, they were more concerned with ambient, trippy soundscapes than thumping beats. Kicking off with the memorable Little Fluffy Clouds and winding up with the mind-expanding A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules from the Centre of the Ultraworld, its a collage of sounds and textures that recalls early Pink Floyd - hence the tribute to that band's Animals album on the Orb's artwork.
