Orb out-takes out of this world ...,
This review is from: Orbsessions Vol.2 (Audio CD)
For volume 2 of this out-takes trilogy, Dr Alex and Malicous Damage dip into the archives again for some more treats.
This collection carries on the good work shown on volume 1 and, as it contains 3 of the tracks that amazingly didn't make it to the original version of Cydonia in 2000/2001, there seems to be a more unified feel to these tracks.
Ralph's Cupboard, Ba'albeck and Jam On Your Honey are all great (whatever name they are called) and what with Shem, It's A Small World, The Great Bolster and the superb 2026 all included, this is a must for Orb fans.
I have to say that in answer to some of the earlier reviews, I for one think it is great that Malicious Damage have got together with Dr Alex to get this together because I am sure there are quite a few fans that have not been able to listen to some of these tracks before for whatever reason - so I think it is far from lazy to put them on here as they have not been legitimately released before.
Lazy is certainly not a word that you can use for the packaging as it is as fantastic as normal from Mike Coles and MD, and the sound of the CD is fantastically crisp and clear.
The Orb make music like no other and this album only serves to whet the appetite for volume 3.
