The Orb - COW/Chill Out, World! album review
Lysergic ambience to soothe psychedelic souls from The Orb
Having already defined and refined the notion of ambient electronic music with their 1991 masterpiece Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld, The Orb have little to prove beyond their own ongoing eccentricity, but Alex Paterson’s mischievous crew have been in fine form of late. Last year’s Moonbuilding 2703 AD was their finest album in more than a decade, and COW/Chill Out, World! suggests that the momentum gained has pushed Paterson and long-time cohort Thomas Fehlmann to new heights of creativity.
