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.
