"In Sides" is the fourth album recorded by Orbital, released in 1996. The name is a reference to the fact that the album was originally available as a 3-LP vinyl box set, with one track per "side" of each LP.

"The Girl with the Sun in Her Head" was dedicated to the memory of photographer Sally Harding who died in 1995. The track was recorded using electricity from a Greenpeace solar power generator.citation|periodical=Billboard|pages=9,96|title=Internal's Orbital Takes Ambient Techno From Studio To Stage|date=1996-05-25|last=Pride|first=Dominic]

" "P.E.T.R.O.L." was included in the soundtracks for the video game "Wipeout" and also the film π. The title of the fifth track, "Dŵr Budr" is Welsh for dirty water. "Adnan's" was originally written for 1995's "The Help Album" benefitting War Child.

American and other overseas versions of the album contained a bonus CD of tracks that had been previously released in the UK, such as "Times Fly"," "The Saint", "The Sinner", "The Box" and live versions of "Satan" and "Halcyon".
