This could be my album of the year. It's everything I love about prog bands minus all the stuff I hate about prog bands.

5.0 classicThompson D. Gerhart STAFF | September 27th 10

I think this may be my album of the year. The whole thing is just so fresh... Heavy yet light. Poppish yet well-grounded. Deviating yet catchy. The vocals are a little hard to get into upon first listen, but you come to love them very, very quickly. And the lyrics... They're quirky, but fun. This whole album is simply great.

5.0 classiccray sean | February 14th 13

I hate religion too, Orbs. It's proggy, it's metal, it's melodic, it's eerie. Orbs is truly doing something different in a genre that really doesn't do much other than what is expected. The keys are incredible on this album, something about it that just sucks you right in.

4.5 superbProYiffer | October 4th 10

This album is incredible, my favorite songs on here are: A Man of Science, The Northwestern Bearitories B. Kid Cancer, and Eclipsical.

This album was so awesome a year ago

3.5 greatTravis Montgomery | December 22nd 12

The Metalcore/Post-Hardcore equivalent of a supergroup. I mean, the album is relatively good, and each musician is obviously talented, but even after repeated listens, all I'm left with is a somewhat unsatisfied feeling. In this case, the whole isn't equal to the sum of its parts. 3.4/5

3.5 greatYetAnotherBrick | June 5th 11

Asleep Next to Science is a vibrant, fun, progressive adventure. Although it can get a little long and over-bombastic, the songwriting is still very solid throughout the album, with occasional exceptions. (One being the rather unfortunate ending to the otherwise awesome "A Man of Science"). All of the music seems very fresh and alive, and all of the album's ideas intrigue, lyrically, especially. The lyrics are written with a smart-alecky -but still smart and subtle- tone, and all the songs speak of very interesting topics, ranging from personal and emotional (from "Eclipsical: " Does anyone believe in God, and do you feel the flames of Hell? 'Cause I do. Or maybe I don't at all, it's just really fucking hot in here..") to broadly philosophical (from "The Northwestern Bearitories A. We the Animal: "The bears asked me to dinner, they had me over, didn't have me for."). The words are always clever, fun, and thought-provoking, just like all the music. I recommend this album to any prog-head or open-minded person in need of some of hearing and/or mind stimulation.

3.5 greatIsaacbean | April 22nd 11

A great record. It combines catchy vocals with stunning keys and guitar, being tied together with quirky effects and timings. Takes a little bit to get used to some of the sounds, but overall, a very memorable album.

Bump

3.0 goodaemaeth | September 18th 10

One crazy ass f***ing ride and I can't wait to get back on. Though this is not my preferential genre, this album is definitely worth a listen.

Bump

0.0 Eli EMERITUS | September 14th 10

I should love this.....but it's like they tried too hard. It's a mash up of styles, and nothing really works. Plus, the vocals are damn near an album breaker, wtf were they thinking?
