In the aggregate, most reviews I've read do a reasonable job of representing the album. See
for a BBC review. It ends: "Bicycles & Tricycles perfectly demonstrates why The Orb are still masters of the beautifully chilled and deconstructed dub. Although not as raw and earthy as their early 'experimental' material, it is representative of where enthralling electronica currently resides."
It's not flawless, but it has good stuff. A reviewer at
says: " Each Orb album has glimpses of sheer brilliance and this is no different. All in all it's a solid return to form."
I'd agree with that.
You'll find a couple of tracks (including "Aftermath") available for streaming at
where the review ends: "an entirely modern effort in the vein of 21st century dance and leftfield music, but includes its share of Orb-tastic humour and surprises. It's a return to the calibre of innovative recording that brought the band critical and commercial acclaim, and a fitting next step for The Orb's reunion with the indie world."
