4.0 out of 5 stars Return of the UFOrb, 10 Dec. 2007
This review is from: The Dream (Audio CD)
So, The Orb are back with their 8th album proper (not including the mass of remix, live, hits and mini-albums out there), and the Dream sees Dr LX and pals returning back to the samples and monster bass lines of yesteryear. The title track starts off with a snug slice of Frippish ambience which will have elderly Orbettes in raptures (a theme which is present throughout the album). My favoutite track is Katskills; a huge dub-animal which will take the roof off venues when played live, something that their more contemporary material has struggled to do. I suspect that The Orb will, if given the opportunity, be a huge success on the festival circuit in 2008, they can be awesome when showcasing the right material and I think a whole new generation might be about to discover that. Not necessarily a return to form then (the brilliant Okie Dokie album did that for me) but certainly a return to the scene of one of their biggest victories; UFORB.
