CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Drowned in Sound

The best record Orbital have made in the past 15 years and up there with their very best.

80
NME

This is mainly a deep pool of blissful, sedentary festival listening.

musicOMH

Orbital are right back on form, sounding assured and instinctive, ready to seize the moment once again and take their music to another level.

75
Pitchfork

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.

70
PopMatters

More time spent with Wonky is time getting acquainted with that old friend electronica, which takes its sweet time developing mood and melody.

Nothing stellar as I have found this CD grows slowly on me...but, alas, it's an Orbital release and that says tons to me!

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.
