The flow of this track is amazing, it never gets boring, there are so many layers to distill and interpret, and while I like the drum-laden live version, the colorful album version is a delicious take on a — back then already two-year old — Dub track.
Plateau is next, and it has come a long way as well. The next twelve and a half minutes are spectacular and opulent in their vivacious power. Phantasmagoric synth strings and related eruptions of pure bliss wash over the listener, Montagne Dor (Der Gute Berg) - Orb* - Orbus Terrarum (Cassette. The acidy base frame of the live version is still there, but the synths have been exchanged and are now gentle and soft. The sustain of the reverberated synth eruption is several seconds long, merging and intertwining with the paradisiac synthetic stream of rapture in the background.
A vivid beat is introduced before the three minute mark and completed by occasional 8-bit pulses. Laser-like twists, plane engines and cyber birds traverse the Plateau. It's The Orb's most romantic song, and Album) endorphins that are set free with each multilayered eruption cause exuberance and joy. The synths are reduced in the middle of the track, however, letting the percussion and the melodious backing curlicues rise in prominence.
The atmosphere gets slightly colder and more metallic, and sure enough, Plateau morphs into a beat-driven pompousness that presents the haunting female chants that are so boldly featured in the live incarnations.
A few synth sweeps keep meandering in the background, but the atmosphere is much more hollow and echoey by now, ending the album version with a trembling string that fades out. Plateau is the obvious show tune — or better still: show-stopper — of Orbus Terrarum. If the listener doesn't like the pre-Pop Ambient goodness and positive vibe of it, then it's really a big pity. I won't judge other people's tastes, don't get me wrong, but I just want to stress that the band tries hard to reduce the experimental setting and camouflage the rather abstract sections with auroral gleams of light.
A masterpiece. The live versions are a bit harsh thanks to their acidy accompaniments, but present the same shimmering synths already. One of the best Ambient pieces the band has ever created. It's the last reported track on which Kris Weston has put his hands on together with the band. Oxbow Lakes remains the poster child of Paterson. The beautiful classic piano melody has been played by himself.
It is probably the real standout track of the album, maybe not for me, but due to its Modern Classical-embracing approach that is augmented with synthesizers and electronic drum kits, it is surely quite appealing to listeners unfamiliar with the band. Released as a single, Oxbow Lakes places the piano melody in bubbling swamps and hazy drones, juxtaposes it to dubby bass lines and coruscating percussion, and encapsulates it with rising shakers and dark synth pads.
After the piano fades out, a spectral five-note synth loop takes over, the tempo seemingly increases and culminates in a beatless phase in which ethereal glaciers and sparkling swirls coalesce. It's a surprising shift, as Oxbow Lakes turns from a romantic depiction to a wild, percussion driven and beat-fueled ride only to end on a festive, peaceful mood.
It is by far my favorite track off Orbus Terrarum and consists of three phases, each of them rising in tension and pressure. Phase 1 starts with a guy who wants to leave for Constantinople, followed by superbly warped, filtered and twisted steel guitar washes which are traversed by synth bubbles and clicks.
Glittering synth swirls accompany the guitars, while a different guy is advertising a "new wealth for every two dollars". This phase is pure bliss and yet distantly pernicious and tense — a great counterpoint to the golden shimmers of Valley and Plateau.
Phase 2 begins with ringing telephones, additional percussion, icy cymbals and permanently pulsating Montagne Dor (Der Gute Berg) - Orb* - Orbus Terrarum (Cassette rising synth droplets.

More organic and straight-forward than its predecessor only one single, Oxbox Lakes was lifted from the album. Starting life as a rejected remix of the Jean Michel Jarre track Oxygene turned down as it bore no resemblance to the original the single reached number 4 in January of Off and a legendary show at the Royal Albert Hall.
