4.0 out of 5 stars Orbital fans, don't burn the cd's quite yet., 20 Jan 2009
This review is from: Madness And Me (Audio CD)
So for those who are looking for something to chew on after an Orbital drought, you may find a few things here that fill the void, but overall I felt the album is without identity, refusing to inherit any genre in the name of experimentation.

It almost feels as though they're dipping their toes into the water and unable to commit to a style, so eclectic is this album. You have Electro pop, ambient, trance, techno, american garage emo, - it's all here.

Lie Down is a beautiful voyage that hits all the right spots for me and is an oft listened track, as is Punky and as with a couple of other tracks, they both share Orbital DNA. Your Face, a strangely unfitting piece to this album that is out of harmony with the style of the surrounding tracks.

There are moments of greatness but are tainted by some of the more mainstream vocalised tracks which I feel are a little to Europop for the likes of what Orbital fans look for.

Still, we're not looking for Orbital as this quite simply isn't and as a experimental departure it hits some refreshing points. I'm bought.
