Has its moments in a couple of tracks. But, with a good few older bits of orb on the shelf this one didn't hit the spot.

Good grief! It's The Orb. I remember them. It was the nineties wasn't it? When the upper middle class, second division university graduates discovered rave, about ten years later and 70bpm slower. Well, turns out that Alex Paterson and his associates have ben beavering away all these years, and this peculiar piece is the result.

This is subtitled "Orbsessions Volume III" (see what they did there), but unlike Volumes I and II, it's actually a brand new set of music, recorded in Berlin for Austrian director Werner Boote's film "Plastic Planet". Nope, me neither, but I'm sure there are six or seven Guardian readers out there who would gladly put me right.

As you will all remember, the Baghdad Batteries were discovered in 1938, and sort of prove that electricity had been harvested a long, long time ago, back when we had solar powered flying carpets. What that has to do with this record or the film, I do not know. Nor care. What I do know is that there is some stunning music on offer here.

For sure, a lot of it is minimalist drone / electronic mumblings, but when they head off into the realms of 'Raven's Reprise' (dedicated to dead Killing Joke bloke Paul Raven), find an actual tune, as on 'Dolly Unit', or get kinda funky on 'Orban Tumbleweed', then it's all quite glorious.

5 star reviews for this saying awesome etc etc, Ive listened 3 times and all I hear is unresolved meandering sounds with no groove or direction. Sounds like unobtrusive background music to a TV science programme. I'll give it another listen. But I reckon its crap.
