A genuine modern day masterpiece of ambient musical heaven which you can never get tired of.
I have to agree with another reviewer, that this album can make you feel better if you are unwell. It simply livens you up and lifts your spirits.
Standout tracks, well they all stand out really, but if I had to pick just one it would be Plateau. 12 minutes of heaven, my only gripe is that they should have released a seven cd edition, with huge extended versions of each track, one per cd. (Maybe thats pushing it a bit)
Buy it, or you'll never know what made me rant on about this Gem, 7 years after I bought it.
and now they're conquering ambient on solid ground...
The result is a fantastically dreamy ambient work, with light percussion. Valley and Plateau are the ambient highlights, which are sub-cool with a soothing rhythm, but enough variation to maintain interest. Oxbow Lakes is, unsurprisingly regarded as the Orb's finest hour and I would be pressed to disagree, as it is simply wonderous.
White River Junction, Montagne D'Or and Occidental are also well produced ambient tracks with the classic Orb touch and are highly listenable.
The finale, Slug Dub is a quite fantastic end to a brilliant album, a 17 minute masterpiece of soundworking with almost every arena of Orb sound encapsulated.
In summary, this is an album no true Orb fan could do without.

This album is still relevant in 2013. Its an album of ambient music. The tunes are definitely more like cerebral-esque journeys by sound than a tune you can put on and hum along... Read morePublished on 8 Oct. 2013 by Rob.D
