The Orb have been creating and distributing highly sedate and tranquil sounds since the early 90ís and continue to put the chill out, back into said rooms. Cydonia is a nifty album title, that encompasses 13 ambient tracks that
motivate you to the point of not leaving the cushy velvet couch, you find yourself endlessly sinking into. Dr. Alex Patterson develops a consistency of down tempo patterns, accompanied with more samples than the Saturday supermarket lady. Andy Hughes engineered most of the album, and luscious vocals appear courtesy of Nina Walsh. The lack of luminescence and lasers from Orbís light show takes away from the final destination of the album, but if you decide to roll up a fatty, make out with your girl, this would be a majestic accompaniment.
