Back in the mid 1990s, the release of a new Orb album would have been something of an event. By 2001, most people had probably forgotten that they still existed (their last album was released in 1997). Some music critics even questioned the band's relevance in the 21st century. In an age of sophisticated chill-out tastes, could the Orb still cut it? From the evidence on Cydonia
, the answer is a resounding yes. Three years in the making, the album sees main man Alex Paterson fusing rolling dub basslines and classic Orb ambience with crisp breaks, shimmering synths and off-kilter electronics. There are spacious vocal numbers (singers Aki and Nina Walsh sound remarkably like Bjork), short, dub-house instrumentals and spooky, other-worldly drum and bass pieces. It's like rave-era ambient house given a 21st century makeover. It's hardly revolutionary, but that's not the point. As far as space-age chill-out music goes, the Orb are still in a class of their own.--Matt Anniss
