Orb on beam ⇔ maeb no brO - with Steve Hillage guesting.

A very good Orb album indeed. I don't think I was alone in thinking that perhaps Alex Patterson's 'best' days might be behind him and that tuning into the zeitgeist was something that his, erm… years of 'journeying' had put out of reach probably forever. However the good news is you just can't keep a good sonic shaman down.

As with most things Orb, this is one to let under your top-knot and live with for a while. I will report back…undoubtedly 'altered' in some way. You don't really tune into what the Orb chaps hear in their mind's ear and put on disc and expect any less - which is why we love them.
