OK let's start with a reality check. This is not really another new album from the Orb and Lee Perry. In effect it is a 5-track EP extension to the Observer LP, (the sixth track being an interlude) and one of those tracks (No Ice Age) was already released as an itunes exclusive. So that's about 22 minutes of fresh sounds. The second half of the release is taken up with instrumentals.

But having got that out of the way, this is still a real treat; spacious dubbed out productions abound. It's a move away from the pounding grooves that dominated much of "Orbserver", but there's still plenty of bass to satisfy dub-heads, and in fact the traditional dub influences are stronger - shades of Rhythm & Sound to my ears. Perry's lunacy is on the same form - rhyming "apple" with "chapel", "crusher" with "Russia" on "Don't Rush I"

The green vinyl is lush and a high quality pressing, there's a download code included, and after all you have those instrumentals to hand as well. The Amazon price is about the most reasonable on the web, so get it while stocks last.

More of the Orb and Perry - it's got that same Kompakt scrunchy, off-the-cuff vibe about it, very similar to the - superior - "Tales from the Orbservatory."

Be warned - there's maybe six vocal tracks on this album. The rest are straight-forward, unembellished instrumentals of the first six tracks. It's not worth forking out too much cash on this one.

I may even prefer this to its predecessor. From the same sessions, these are theoretically the leftovers from last year's Orbserver In The Starhouse, but by golly they're good!

Sorry guys, not impressed at all. Five songs and five unchanged instromentals, no dubbing, lack lustre songs and dreary rythms this has nothing to recommend it. I liked the first CD they did together but this is very poor. Buy the first one and leave this one on the shelf. If you really want to get a good Orb disc try Metallic spheres, if you like Lee Perry's stuff then seek out Pressure Sounds Roaring Lion collection, now that's what I call music.

I asked my mate what the LP was like and he said, "You love The Orb and you love Lee Perry, It's a no-brainer really" He was spot-on.
