"Snivilisation" is the third album, and the first named album, by "Orbital". It was released in 1994.
The track "Are We Here?" features vocals by Alison Goldfrapp, as does "Sad But True". "Are We Here?" is also featured on "Work 1989-2002".
The band released the album at the time of the launch of the "Criminal Justice Act". The legisation that gave British Police greater legal powers to break up the unlicensed raves that gave Orbital its name.
