Recorded at Space Mountain Spain, Lab Studios Berlin, Meridian London.

On the pop side, there's the trap-influenced "The End of the End," featuring Emma Gillespie, and the ecstatic pop-reggae of "Rush Hill Road," with the always marvelous Hollie Cook. COW was intended as a sort of peaceful protest album, and No Sounds continues with this in some aspects - it's generally relaxing and upbeat, but there's a pronounced antiwar theme running through it all. The bubbly, airhorn-filled hip-hop track "Wolfbane" unexpectedly ends with a sample about a bomb powerful enough to destroy New York City, while "Doughnuts Forever" opens with a snippet about "missiles proceeding downrange. There's also the chilling "Ununited States," characterized by stark piano and funereal trumpet.

Many of the album's other strong points look to the past. Isle Of Horns" shows a reggae fixation Paterson has had since his teens, as did releases like Orb In Dub and their album with Lee "Scratch" Perry. The 15-minute closer, "Soul Planet," reprises the epic ambient house sound the group invented. At its best, The Orb's expansive sound has made us feel calm and adrift on the dance floor. But No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, with its stylistic and thematic missteps, too often shakes us out of this trademark groove. Published, Mon, 9 Jul 2018. Words, Matt McDermott.

The Orb will release a new album No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds in June. The album features guest singers and has been produced by Youth. The official Orb store offers an exclusive coloured vinyl pressing, which comes with an Alex Paterson signed artwork print and the instrumental CD for just £30 which seems like excellent value

Artist: The Orb. Album: No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds.

Having spent much of the last decade fiddling around with Teutonic techno and quite clinical ambient sounds, Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann have decided to go back to their roots with an album created in the same collaborative way as early classics Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld and . For those raised on these early 90s gems, this is an enticing proposition (particularly since old mucker Youth features prominently throughout).

The Orb. Wish I Had a Pretty Dog, 05:04. Rush Hill Road, 05:55. Pillow Fight @ Shag Mountain, 07:31. Doughnuts Forever, 03:30.

The Orb store completely made a big mess of my order.Sure, there were too many bundles that they could obviously handle, but I bought two copies of the black vinyl and two copies of the red vinyl and I only received one art print, one cover print and only one Instrumental CD, although that the confirmation mail (that isn't presented in bundles, but all items are separate) shows that all vinyl copies come with the instrumental CD.Also, the red vinyl came in the "Normal cover" - was the red vinyl really delivered in a different cover?I remember buying one deluxe (with the normal CD) and two separate black and red vinyl editions, but, as said, they didn't confirm the bundles but split them all, and, claim that the instrumental CD was purchased separately without cost, as if it was possible to order only the instrumental CD. For free.

The black vinyl version sounds awesome. They’ve done a good job here, the sound is rich and full. The best Orb album in a while. Even the Slightly poppier songs are ok.
  • Binar
please comment on the quality of the pressing. I have red vinyl edition and it is terrible
  • Onetarieva
The lim. 500 indie blue vinyl edition sounds absolutely outstanding!
