A worthy successor to the group's first release, the watershed double-disc THE ORB'S ADVENTURES BEYOND THE ULTRAWORLD, U.F.ORB ranges a little further afield in composition and concept. With a keener sense of focus and a greater willingness to step outside the rave-oriented dance metres of the duo's debut, Alex Paterson and Kris Weston (a.k.a. Thrash) delve more heavily into found sounds, samples, and audio collage.
The opener and the chimerical, mesmerising "Blue Room", demonstrate a particular affinity for manipulating sound into abstract, mind-teasing formations. The influence of heavy dub--the sort practiced by Lee "Scratch" Perry and King Tubby--is apparent here as well, especially on the aptly named "Towers of Dub". But the Orb still creates pulsing, beat-based music for this outing, particularly on the title track and the tense "Close Encounters". U.F.ORB demonstrates the group's prowess at melding the rhythmic elements of house with the avant-garde, organic soundscapes of ambient music, and confirms its status as a highly influential act in the development of electronica.
