Terminus is one of my favorite ambient tracks, but now I found that is very similar to Floating Sync by Electro Harmonix, maybe The Orb are inspired by them.

This is probably the most criticized release in the history of The Orb, although I'm not sure why. Since 'Orblivion', they've headed in a different direction compared to 'U.F.Orb' and 'Orbus Terrarum'. Dense, compact songs are now favoured over epic, ambient soundscapes. Sonically, it actually resembles their first album ('Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld') as the tracks range from pop to dance to dub, all in an Orbish, ambient fashion. It's pretty accomplished if you ask me, and definitely not a retread.

With follow-up 'Bicycles & Tricycles' and especially on their most recent album 'Okie Dokie It's The Orb On Kompakt', they continue to crystallize the true Orb sound. This sound is the same sonically rich ambient house we all know and love but expressed in shorter songs. Think 'Little Fluffy Clouds' instead of 'A Huge Evergrowing Pulsating Brain'.
