    One bold and fascinating album

  2. 8.0 |   The Arts Desk

    More than a nostalgic reminder that when Dr Alex is on top of his game, he’s a sonic magician

  3. 8.0 |   Q

    Re-establishes them as sculptors of heavy-but-humourous CD-length aural odysseys. Print edition only

  4. 7.0 |   All Music

    Ends up seeming a bit scattered, even by the Orb's standards, but it's still plenty enjoyable, and enough to distract you from the nightmarish absurdity of current events

  5. 7.0 |   Exclaim

    A delightfully wide angled glance at what the Orb still have brewing and perhaps a projection of a vital new period of experimentation

  6. 6.0 |   music OMH

    There are also sections where they merely retread old ground with diminishing returns, making this an only half-satisfying LP

  7. 5.8 |   A.V. Club

    Overall it’s a baggy mixed bag of dub grooves and warmed-over house beats

  8. 5.6 |   Resident Advisor

    Occasionally brilliant, but its attempts to modernise the group's trademark sound too often fall short
    Read Review

  9. 4.0 |   The Irish Times

    It’s still more likely to appeal to the old guard, rather than galvanise a new generation of fans into investigating their back catalogue
