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 ...

3.0 out of 5 stars it's different 6 Nov 2005
By Orbus
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best ambient album 17 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Orb Lite 20 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chill Out! 11 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
A more layed back approach then last 2 albums. Bliss airy ambient with subtle electronics bubbling underneath run through most of the album, though, 3 tracks are more upbeat with a well developed beat orientated ambient-techno sound. This is an album more suited too sit-back & chill with, with its dreamy like soundscapes, that slowly evolve with flutters of liquid beatless electronics and synth sounds. A slow burner that keeps you captivated and bring back memories of The Orb's classic ambient days.
