Performer Notes
  • The Orb includes: Dr. Alex Paterson.
  • All songs co-written by Dr. Alex Paterson.
  • The perfect response to a music scene swamped by what Paterson himself called "lame ambient noodling for 70 minutes," Orbus Terrarum brings the mothership back to earth for a collision with some surprisingly harsh percussion and noisy synth. The melodies and dub lines of previous Orb recordings are still in the mix, and the esoteric bent of Pomme Fritz is muted somewhat. Orbus Terrarum is definitely not the place to start, but it's still a worthy successor to U.F.Orb. The final track, "Slug Dub," is an ambient epic with vocal samples taken from a children's story. ~ John Bush
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (4/20/95, pp.69-70) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...the [Orb's] new album meanders through a cryptic obstacle course toward a distant psychic finish line....Levity is unquestionably a key ingredient of the Orb's artistry, and ORBUS TERRARUM is their most amusing offering to date..."

Spin (7/95, p.77) - 7 - Flawed Yet Worthy - "...Taking some tips from Jamaica's funky four plus one more...the Orb has combined the smoothest of the old flavors and distilled 'em, chilled 'em, and illed 'em into something more akin to ambient rock with a marked absence of narrative..."

Entertainment Weekly (4/14/95, p.64) - "...London's premiere ambient-trance group does it again. Splicing samples of old sci-fi flicks and children's shows, Orb has unleashed another excrutiatingly funky disc....Bongs optional..." - Rating: A

Down Beat (9/95, p.48) - 3.5 Stars - Good/Very Good - "The Orb take their ambient-techno music into live performance, and are bolstered by a loopy sense of humor....ORBUS TERRARUM is relatively `grounded,' with sounds of nature replacing the beeps and blips of their intergalactic explorations..."

Option (7-8/95, p.127) - "...[on ORBUS TERRARUM] they shed ambient house and go in a whole new directon...more than 70 minutes of blissed-out, smoothed-out, instrumental mayhem..."

Musician (7/95, p.106) - "...creates lush valleys and underwater canyons where shimmering sounds fly overhead and blips and burps run over your feet. The sounds tumble from one song to the next, building a seamless whole that leaves you in a dreamlike state...
