Following Weston's departure from the Orb, Thomas Fehlmann joined as a full-time studio member, but did not always participate in live performances. Paterson, Hughes, and Fehlmann then finished producing the album Orbus Terrarum , on which Paterson and Weston had been working. Orbus Terrarum , released in 1995, featured more "earthbound" and "organic" sounds than their previous trippy science-fiction-themed music. [6] [28] Orbus Terrarum suffered, as Paterson described it, "a good kicking" at the hands of the British press, [29] who described it as "generic" and a low point for Paterson's creativity. [26] [30] Orbus Terrarum alienated many of the group's fans, [31] and only reached #20 on the British charts. [32] American critics gave it great acclaim, including Rolling Stone who made it their album of the month, citing its symphonic flow coupled with the Orb's "uniquely British wit". [4] [33] [34] After a long world tour, the Orb, with Andy Hughes and Steve Hillage, settled down to produce their next album, Orblivion —the process of which saw a return to their spacey sounds. Though Orblivion was recorded in May 1996, it was not released until almost a year later, due to Island Records' desire to promote it as a follow up to U2 's techno-rock album Pop . [35] Orblivion sold well in Europe as well as the United States, where it reached the Billboard Top 200 . The first Orblivion single, " Toxygene ", was the highest charting single by the Orb, reaching #4 in the United Kingdom on 8 February 1997. Despite high sales, Orblivion received a lukewarm reception from the British press. [2] [36] As with Orbus Terrarum , Orblivion was better received by American critics, including Rolling Stone , who praised its "contrast of chaos and euphony". [4] [31] Meanwhile, the stresses of touring sat heavily on Paterson; he considered retiring the Orb, but continued touring and producing. [37] In 1997 the band sold their studio Joe's Garage to the Godfrey brothers of Morcheeba . [38]

6. The KLF, Chill Out (1990)
British acid house pioneers The KLF are perhaps most famous for burning a million pounds . But their rebellious, Illuminati-obsessed, art-school attitude belies the subtle beauty of their work. Chill Out is their undisputed masterpiece, following a long tradition of the English looking to the American South for inspiration. A concept album, Chill Out conjures a late night train ride from Texas to Louisiana in some imaginary theater of the mind. With field recordings and sounds cribbed from BBC documentaries and sound effects albums, Chill Out incorporates seemingly disparate parts — country, trance, preacher sermons, dub, and classical — into an effortless, ghostly rave that's somehow always been there. While they're not as famous as they should be here in the States, The KLF bridged the gap between house and ambient, esoteric and approachable, abstract and narrative, and this recording ushered in a new era of interest in the ambient genre.
