I'd like to think I'm an Orb connoisseur, having listened to them for over ten years and following their every audible move in that time. I truly feel that this is one of the best Orb albums to date... with each LP release I find that I'm satisfied and I can't really single out a least favorite album (which seems to be, for most people, Cydonia or Bicycles and Tricycles, which personally I loved both), but if I'd have to declare a favorite album, one with a cohesive and harmonious tracklist that sets you reeling into oblivion for over 80 glorious minutes, I'd have to say that The Dream is it. There is not a track on this album that doesn't belong, it's incredible. 'Codes' has to be one of the best Orb creations - if you really let it permeate the senses I think you'll find it to be the most sensual Orb song, ever. Even more so than 'Molten Love', which honestly I didn't think could be done!! 'Mother Nature', 'Lost & Found', 'Vuja De' of course, 'The Truth Is...' - they're FANTASTIC. 'Orbisonia' is a direct connection to their earliest work, it's amazing how after nearly two decades the Orb can return to the ethereal aesthetics that launched them into ambient stardom.
Basically, this album is worth your money, your time, your everything. Invest in a vacation for your brain.
Thanks Orb - as always I can't wait to hear more!!!

2007 has been a busy year for the Orb. With the re-release of their first two albums, and Orbsessions Vol.2 it is amazing that they found time to create a new album. The Orb did anyway.

Upon listening to Dream, I liked it. The first time I listened, was to hear what type of album it was. The second time was to make further jugement as to the quality. I liked it. A mix of old and new. There are some great tracks with pleasant melodies as well as some tracks that resemble why fans of the Orb were attracted to the music in the first place.

Compaired to their previous album "Okie Dokie" this album is a little more structured and doesn't trail off into a mellow tone at the end of the album. I also liked "Okie Dokie" but in itself "Okie Dokie" is a different album. "Dream" is a little more of an up and down ride. That is what makes this album great. Orb fans would not be dissapointed. Dr. Alex and Thomas Fehlmann deliver what they are good at, and that is music which is unique and precious to us who like it.

I was very impressed with this album. Easily the best thing they've produced since Ultraworld.

I am not a devoted Orb fan by any means. Although I liked the sound they achieved in Ultraworld, I don't own any other albums and I generally see The Orb as the electronica equivalent of Phish: an aimless, noodly jam band in serious need of focus and better song structure. But as an electronica fan, I check in on The Orb from time to time to see what they're up to.

I approached this disc with no specific expectations, and was pleasantly surprised to find an album of excellent dubby material with a punchy underlying dance vibe, great basslines, and well-defined songs. It's an uplifting and very accessible selection of tracks that get your toes tapping and each fade out before they overstay their welcome. It's also immediately recognizable as an Orb disc, with the spacey samples and fluidity that is their trademark, but reigned in to a manageable degree. I'm glad I kept my eye on these guys after all. Almost begrudgingly, I must give it full credit: five stars.

The reviews of this are pretty mixed, and I'll attempt to summarize:

If the last Orb album you liked was Ultraworld, all you want to hear is fifteen year old space ambient, and you do not like lyrics or samples that sound like lyrics, you will not like this. If you want to hear a great dub dance album with lots of tweaky samples that sounds like Orb live and DJ performances from the last decade, this is totally worth it. It's groove-tastic! It is similar to Orblivion and Cydonia but feels a lot more cohesive.

I'm all for space ambient, but come on people, don't give this album two stars because it doesn't sound just like UF Orb and Ultraworld!

Flat-out brilliant for most of the time - not always, but who needs perfection? Laden with Alex P's samples and some big, accessible beats - Dirty Disco Dub, Lost & Found and Vuja De are classics. The "donut-manuevering" voice-over on Beautiful Day is hilarious and ominous. Bonus: lots of the UFO mythos and first-contact lore that they're parlayed for so long. My guess: The Orb are aliens and we're merely here for their amusement.

Since the below par Cydonia album, The Orb have been decidedly patchy. For a while now they seem to be coasting on easily making good ( BadOrb ), so-so ( Bicycles and Tricycles ) and the bad ( those clearing the vaults Orbsessions ). With Okie Dokie it seemed like there was going to be something of a return to form with Thomas Fehlmann proving to be the jolt that boosted Alex's jaded/fading senses. Alas with Dream, it seems like Alex has slipped into reverse. Teaming up with Youth again has proved that no matter how hard they try to keep with the times, the sound just doesn't fit. The Orb were at their best when they weren't trying to fit in and the ideas they use here are stale and have been used thousands of times before. Alex has been busy working on so many projects at once that it's hard to see where his vision really lies. For me, he should work more with Thomas Fehlmann more as he seems to hit more of a groove that is completely lacking ( perhaps missing ) in action here. He's been hitting the auto-pilot button too much. Get the old juices flowing again because this is a major disappointment.
