The Orb featuring David Gilmour - The Making of Metallic Spheres

Biography

The Orb virtually invented the electronic genre known as ambient house, resurrecting slower, more soulful rhythms and providing a soundtrack for early-morning ravers once the clubs closed their doors. The group popularized the genre as well, by appearing on the British chart show Top of the Pops and hitting number one in the U.K. with the 1992 album U.F.Orb. Frontman Dr. Alex Paterson's ...

The Orb are typically slightly more than the sum of their parts.

Dr. Alex Patterson, founder and media mainstay rather than creative force, acts as gnomic facilitator and endless provider of giggly samples from an extraordinary backlog of TV samples and old BBC sound-effects LPs.

It is the studio know-how and synth-programming genius of past co-conspirators such as Kris Weston, Andy Hughes and - as evidenced here - Thomas Fehlmann, which provides the endlessly buoyant sonic platform for these somewhat herbally-infused digressions.

On no previous album however is Dr. Patterson's presence as vestigial as it is here. The beats are decidely Germanic-of-Berlin-persuasion, and the humorous sample touches are for the most part conspicuously absent; Battersea is well over the horizon, somewhere near the other end of a round trip in a Lancaster bomber.

This is definitely a Thomas Fehlmann record in all but name, to the extent of recycling more than just a synth patch or two from his own contemporaneous 'Visions of Blah' and 'Lowflow' albums. However, we should not be alarmed; this has all happened before.

For much of the 90s Fehlmann acted as a sort of manager-cum-studio-fixer for German electronic act Sun Electric, known for their crisp, warm analog sounds and densely-programmed digital effects. It is therefore interesting to note the heavy similarity between the sound palette of Sun Electric albums like 'Kitchen' and 'Present', and Orb releases from around the same period such as 'Orbus Terrarum' and 'Pomme Fritz' - all of which Fehlmann had a hand in.

So we really shouldn't be surprised that this Orb release bears all of Fehlmann's sonic hallmarks - the dolorous beats, grainy synth textures and dank swashes of tape-echo which populate his own records. Again he has acted as an effective conduit, borrowing from one act - in this case his own - to give to another.

I bought almost all orb albums and found latest two albums - this and 'the dream'- are the best of them, although these two are totally opposite music. I must say this is more like Thomas fehlmann's work rather than Alex's, but still has his taste in vocals such as Lunik TM. Its well defined complex but still very warm ans light sound leads me to a status of mind floating in the air. Real masterwork of ambient.

As an orbsessed Orb I can't hide some disappointment when listening to this album the first time. I mean, I really like the Kompakt label and it's 'sound' and an Orb album on this label as a one-off would be cool, but if this is the new direction they want to take for all there music then I’m scared they will just blend in the numerous of other fantastic Kompakt releases and not stand out anymore as the wacky unique sounding pioneers of Ambient/dub like they did on Orbus Terrarum or Orblivion.
When I think Orb I think, soundscapes, wicked dub basses, humor, spoken word and chaotic melodies ... above all a feel that this music is a collage of sounds, very spontaneously though crafty sculptured into this amazing novel music. Ofcourse I want my favourite electronic band to evolve, but I’m not sure they do with this album. This sounds more like a spin-off project. (Maybe it is ?)
This being said though, I don’t hate this album. When I got over the initial letdown I started to listen to it for what it is, a fine minimal electronica album mainly produced by Thomas Fehlman I think, witch is not a bad thing, I Love Visions of Blah and especially Flow EP.
I find myself playing it frequently, mostly in my car and it does draw my attention, the cool groove of Ripples that pulls you to the the funky bass in the more up-tempo Captain Korma, ‘Beautytude’ reminds me of Orblivion a bit, with it’s jingly bleep things ;) . Oh, here we have ‘Cool Harbour’ , again. I like ‘Traumvogel’ for it’s melancholic atmosphere. It’s only when ‘Before Because’ starts that I get really drawn into the Orb mood, yes, I like this one a lot. This song tells a story.

I have been a major Orb fan for the last 8 years or so (Toxygene got me into them) and have enjoyed collecting their back catalogue as well as each album that came along since.
I am not sure what to make of this. I take it it is a proper Orb album, but there seems to be a lack of writing partners (check out the credits on their older material), this can be a strength and a weakness. I think this album lacks the depth and edginess of their older material and isnt really a patch on their high watermark album Orblivion (which is a stunning album).
It feels lightweight in comparison, yet it does have some fantastic orb-esque moments especially Ripples, Falkenbruck and Traumvogel, which carry on the vein of the last album Bicycles and Tricycles. This really is a totally stripped down Orb album with basic production a lack of trippy soundscapes and samples.
If you listen to Thomas Fehlmann's solo work, it has more in common with the likes of Visions of Blah than anything previous by the Orb. Therefore I would reccomend this album for those Orb followers and also those who enjoy ambient music in general. I think this is the most ambient Orb album since The Ultraworld days - you can hear the Eno influences here and there (one of the ambient pioneers along with Tangerine Dream).
I would think carefully before purchase but I'm sure you will not be disappointed as they are still capable of mind-blowing moments - its a slow burner so be patient and the tunes will grow on you.
