U.F.Orb was considered as a prog rock album by journalists at the time of its release in 1992. Now, The Orb’s second long-player is rightly regarded as a classic of the ambient genre. Alex Patterson’s ability to channel Eno-eque sounds and take them into a new musical era was strengthened by Kris Weston’s creativity and technical ability. U.F.Orb features guest appearances from Jah Wobble on Bass and Steve Hillage on guitar.

Twenty-five years ago when it came out, the 2nd album by The Orb was originally being labeled a prog-rock album by the confused journalists. Since, U.F.Orb became widely regarded as ambient house. If this album was created to convince you about the Universe's endlessness, its influence on electronica of the 90's is more than self-evident and proves the Universe's expansion. Many artists have tried to replicate the chill out feel of U.F.Orb, only to prove its importance in the music history. But while it's a premier chapter from "Chill-out for Dummies" and highly recommended for its historical significance, rest assured this is not an album only meant to be sought after by historians, as after almost 3 decades it does not sound outdated at all.
Also, this one fuels hope for that long overdue Orbvs Terrarvm re-issue.
