In many ways the album is reminiscent of their early work, with eerie sounds and journeys created by some hypnotic productions. The opening track in ‘Transient’ is one such production, full of magnificent symphonic moments and moody energy. Tracks early on such as ‘Pants’ and ‘Tunnel Vision’ lift the tempo and vibe of the album is true style with twisted beats and effects, while productions such as ‘Lost’ and ‘Bath Time’ keep the smooth and mellow moments in tact. ‘You Lot’ definitely features the retro vibes that Orbital may have come up with all those years ago, while the very unique ‘Acid Pants’ featuring Sparks reminds you that Orbital are very original at what they do. ‘Easy Serv’ is a stunning piece of music with beautiful soundscapes and smooth emotive moments, and ‘One Perfect Sunrise’ featuring Lisa Gerrard concludes the album in brilliant fashion with an emotive journey from the first second, thanks to brilliant vocal patterns from Lisa as well as pure genius .
The only fault I could perhaps find in this album is that the flow is not as string as previous albums, but nevertheless, there are some quite brilliant moments in there, a fact which for me overshadows the lack of flow. The final production is ‘One Perfect Sunrise’ is one such moments, and its tracks like these which have made Orbital one of the greatest Electronic acts ever. Perhaps its not their best album, but it is a great way to sign off.
