Pomme Fritz is a 1994 "mini-album" by The Orb. It was The Orb's first studio production released on Island Records. Although its liner notes describe it as a mini-album, many consider it an EP. Pomme Fritz is a chaotic release which Rolling Stone described as an "aural feast" despite its "lack of cohesion" and direction. Though Pomme Fritz reached as high as #6 on the UK charts, UK critics panned it as "doodling" and noted its absence of focus. Even Island Records "hated it" and "didn't understand it at all", according to Paterson. Kris Weston's role was much diminished on Pomme Fritz and is credited only as an engineer. Though Pomme Fritz was released as a piece of original work, it consists largely of manipulated samples.
