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.

FACT Magazine

The occasional glimpses of innovation just about justify its many flaws

Even for Orbital, this album is fantastically fun. It blends their signature style with more modern sound to create clever and often catchy music.
Best track: New France
Worst track: Wonky (because the vocals at the dance sections sound like a dying cat, and are utterly obnoxious)

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.
