Amoeba Review

08/28/2012

The Orb team with dub reggae legend Lee “Scratch” Perry on an album of mostly new material that fuses The Orb’s ambient house sound to that pioneered by Perry, showing the innate similarities in their stylistically different genres mesh well, due to the ability of both to focus on basic elements of throb, drone and building songs from the ground up. “H.O.O.” is a glorious example of how natural the pairing can sound as Perry vocalizes in and out of The Orb’s warm groove. A pair of reworkings should also pique interests, as anyone who’s heard both The Orb’s “Little Fluffy Clouds” and Perry’s “Police & Thieves” a thousand times should delight at their respective reworkings, as The Orb’s becomes the slower, funkier “Golden Clouds” and “Police & Thieves” stays faithful to the sound of the original but gets chopped and melded until slightly askew, it pours smoothly out, and the lyric “a new generation will rise” seems more fitting than ever.
