The best record Orbital have made in the past 15 years and up there with their very best.
This is mainly a deep pool of blissful, sedentary festival listening.
Orbital are right back on form, sounding assured and instinctive, ready to seize the moment once again and take their music to another level.
They've managed to work within mainstream dance music's current vogue for radio-friendly track lengths without abandoning their patented crest-to-the-big-release style.
More time spent with Wonky is time getting acquainted with that old friend electronica, which takes its sweet time developing mood and melody.
The occasional glimpses of innovation just about justify its many flaws
Decent new stuff - 'Never' is a standout. But it all gets blown away by Impact, Lush, Satan, Belfast and Chime on the 2nd CD recorded live in Oz.
