5.0 out of 5 stars Bless You - BadOrb.com 5 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
With the release of Bless you, the Orb have become BadOrb. The Orb have tried to symbolize the silly season of dance, quite unsuccessfully and their attempt at musical humour is more like a satirical comment on society, without lyrics this is also open to interpretation. Depite the Orb not taking themselves seriously they are extreemly talented and diverse. The recreation of "Barbie Girl" on the album is haunting and almost morose, other outstanding tracks are "Fusonic" and "Ow much?" but like their other great albums it is a musical journey appreciated as a whole and sounds like Jean Michel Jarre having bad trip. This album requires many listenings and is not easily accessable which is all for the best. The second cd is a bit of a mess being a combination of tracks and PC netware.
Zyle Zeto, I think that, is a great sign off track.
Although not a masterpiece "Bless You" is very enjoyable none the less.

4.0 out of 5 stars Once Again, the Orb strikes gold! 12 July 2002
By brjoro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This 2-cd set is actually a collection of limited edition vinyl singles that were released on badorb.com, an Internet record label run by the Orb and their extended family. Most of these tracks feature Dr. Alex Patterson, Orb mainman, and a collection of sidemen who've worked with the good Dr. throughout the years. So, two tracks are "officially" Orb tracks, although, since Paterson is a co-writer on much of the other material, it all sounds relatively Orb-y, which is great. This material is a little bit fresher and more alive than the last Orb studio effort "Cydonia," as if they've been invigorated by the DIY elements of putting out their own stuff, being free of a big record label. As always, great dubby bass lines, killer beats, quirky sound samples, and layers and washes of keyboards. All in all, if you like the Orb, you'll love this. Also features Thomas Fehlman, the Sun Electric guys, Witchman, and a few others. Highly recommended, Alex Patterson is a true innovater in this field, and he still has the potential to put all the young whippersnappers to shame! Long live the Orb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Was Skeptical 25 Sep 2002
By Bill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It is 2002 and much of electronica's fire has burned out.
With the exception of Underworld, most of the heavy influences of late 90s electronica (Fatboy slim, chemical bros, crystal method) have been putting out very innocuous albums.
I was very skeptical at first as the label on the celophane stated "mixed in the tradition of the orb" which meant not technically an Orb album.
I listened and was completely surprised/relieved/ecstatic all at once. This album is mixed by Alex Patterson from the Orb and has signature Orb sounds/influence all over it.
A must buy for any Orb fan.
You will not be let down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Orb. but... 4 Aug 2003
By JC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I hope eveyone remembers this is not an Orb CD, and doesn't represent Dr. Alex Patterson's inpiring imagination...it's more of a collection of work by Alex, assoc. and company.
At first listen I didn't care for it too much...and NO, I wasn't expecting it to sound exactly like Dr. Alex, simply because I already knew this was not an official Orb release/album. So I didn't play it for a while, until I played it once more recently, and realised how complex the music is and not suprisingly, it now ranks pretty close to any Orb album I own.
To enjoy this project you have to listen to it straight through, from beginning to finish (just like any Orb album). Some of the tracks (not written by Alex) sound similar to the Orb's past work with their low bass line, heavy beats, and minimal ambience. I especially love the two tracks Alex submitted to this project (Cool Harbour, and I Am The Red Worm). But what makes this project special is that it's work written and produced by friends and such of Dr. Alex, and all together it works well as "joined-snapshots" of work around one man's vision.
As for the other ten tracks, there is nothing too interesting about them, but only works well as one piece of music, and some of it is more of that sarcastic british pun/humor that we all know so well from many or all of the Orb's own albums. Other than "Cool Harbour" " and "..the Red Worm", I think "Puffin' In Paradise" could work well on it's own...very Meat Beat Manifesto-ish.
5.0 out of 5 stars Bit hard to find album of an amazing briefly alive label 2 Feb 2014
By Levi Wilbert - Published on Amazon.com
This CD is one of my favorites of the Orb (although with the vast discography of the Orb and it's members side projects, it becomes hard to say). It's in the style of their Orbus Terrarum and Pomme Fritz albums, although this is not technically an Orb album. The Orb started a vinyl only label, badorb.com, which unfortunately is long gone, however, released some awesome music while they were active. This is a sort of sampling of all the songs they released, and mixed. Much of the music features Orb collaborators or acts tied into the Orb one way or another, and the Orb themselves on some tracks. It is a great, mysterious, chill, bizarre and fascinating journey into the audio realm.

i've had trouble finding this on CD at times, and for download. Luckily it's here on amazon (albeit a little pricey for an mp3 album). The tracks can be found individually on vinyl however it will be harder tracking those down as they were only made according to demand, and in amount of 500 or so each. Great stuff though, with Thomas Fehlmann, John Roome, and Sun Electric/S.E. Berlin.

Definitely one of the top albums I own. Recommended if you're into dub/techno/ambient sorta music.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's The Orb 30 Nov 2002
By filterite - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
You know how an Orb album is like in that you don't know how it's going to be but somehow you know it'll be weird . Basically this doesn't disappoint and is one for the major Orb fan while it should please newcomers .
Enjoy
