That new Orbital track is epic.

The artwork also seems to hint for a resurrection of the glorious 'Snivilisation'/'In Sides'-sound, so indeed high hopes for this! And this time please without any half baked 'Dubstep' or 'EDM' experiments :)

It's a considerably stronger track to launch the album with than 'Never' was (although that track grew on me). And yeah, I'm really happy they've gone back to the hand-drawn art rather than the CG stuff from Work, Blue and Wonky which didn't suit the band at all.
'Tiny Foldable Cities' still features that really tight / compressed drum sound that they've been using since The Altogether, which is a shame - bring back the big chunky Roland machines please guys - but otherwise yeah, I have fairly high hopes for this. Paul admitted that Wonky was mostly made to give them new material to play live - hence the fucking dubstep version of 'Satan' - but everything about this new one feels a lot more genuinely creative.

This and My Kingdom Re-Imagined combined are doing such a good job of making those new Orb tracks seem even more laughably bad than they do of their own accord.

Yeah, the guy who made the Snivilisation and In Sides covers makes pretty awesome art, some kind of psychedelic, surrealistic still lives, totally love this:

GAS - Rausch

Didn't quite like 'Narkopop', seems to me somewhat pointless meandering, but this one is ace. Best GAS-release so far I would say.

I'm really looking forward to the new Orbital record, everything I've heard so far sounds great. On the artwork front you should check John Greenwood's site, there are definitely some things you'll recognise there.

The Orb - No Sounds are Out of Bounds

Listened to this last night, laying on the sofa on a warm, sunny evening after a long week and it really hit the spot. Upbeat summer vibes :)

It's about 37 times better than I expected it to be, after they released the three worst tracks as singles. I'd totally written it off until I read a lot of positive responses on Facebook.
