I think Phil has probably had some compositional input, but definitely a lot less than Paul. You can even see it live - Paul's by the synths while Phil is manning the desk. It upset me a bit on Wonky where seven of the tracks were just credited to Paul - suggested that they weren't on such good terms and Paul wasn't willing to split the credits any more. Even if the new music isn't that great, I'm really happy that the two brothers are on good terms again. Orbital are a hugely important band to me, and the way their last breakup was worded suggested things weren't good between the pair of them which made me sad.

Can't speak for most of the other groups, but FSOL was fairly equal, in that they'd general do a back-and-forth between the pair of them on a track: Brian would start, then Gaz would do work, then Brian would go back to it, or vice versa. There are a few Brian solo tracks scattered throughout the discography but it's mostly an even split.

they just released two live albums (they're basically identical, so I don't know why the need for both, but whatever - they're beyond overdue for a live album), which include 3 new tracks - "Copenhagen", "Phuk", and "Tiny Foldable Cities". All three are excellent (as was "Cooping Lisa", which they were playing before)...new stuff seems like it'll have the "classic" Orbital sound, much like the first and last tracks on Wonky. In fact the whole live set rules, everyone who likes the band should get it. Don't wanna get too hyperbolic here but it gave me the same feeling I got when I first heard Everything, Everything

I've only been a 'casual fan' of Orbital over the years, but I downloaded 'Live At Eventim Hammersmith Apollo (02-12-17)' out of curiosity, as I didn't like the Blue Album and only bits of Wonky

but I totally agree - it's a great concert, and man... the new version of "Satan" is fantastic

they also make "Forever" into a Kraftwerk tune and turn "Girl With the Sun in Her Head" into a total rave-up

but yea that version of "Satan" is something else

The new tracks sound okay live, but here's hoping for a great new studio record. It's hard to know exactly what you'll get from a YouTube live recording. And while Wonky and Blue are decent albums, I'm looking forward to a new record with more lasting impression...

have you heard the Live Here Now recording? pretty close to studio quality, and they're excellent

btw I have to amend my previous post - "Copenhagen" IS "Cooping Lisa", or the latter was just an early version of the former. still, they're 3 for 3 on the new tracks as far as I'm concerned
