Unlike previous Orb albums, Cydonia featured several 'proper' songs with vocals, which critics felt did not sound similar to Orb songs. Singers Nina Walsh and Aki Omori appeared on two tracks each on Cydonia, providing vocals and co-writing lyrics with Paterson, who felt that this new direction for the Orb was more similar to the experimental work of Orbus Terrarum, rather The Orb produced two CDs worth of material for the album and eventually cut it down for the final release.

I'm not sure why a lot of people give this album a bad rap. If you like ambient music, and have discovered that other place in your mind, then this album wisks you there. Sure there are a couple (two tops) of crossover tracks here, but hey LX needs to make a living. Doesn't he? This album isn't generic, it's name brand Orb. In fact, I'm listening to it now. If you fully disagree with my commentary, then you haven't given the album a fair chance. - Promis- has a lot of cool sounds, and is enlightening. - Ghost Dancing- let's you dance with ghosts - Turn it down- Needs to be turned up! - Plum Island- Is a secret that should be told (Listen beyond the vocals) - Hamlet of Kings is a great track (Look for a psy-remix of this track on Alex's 'Voyage into Paradise' compilation. It's listed as 'The Rob-4 Horseman') - Thursday's Keeper- evolves into a masterful composition - Terminus - Dub Masterpiece it is!
