3 stars Shades of Orion 2 is the second installment of the collaboration between Pete Namlook and Tetsu Inoue under the project name Shades of Orion. Like the previous album in this series with Tetsu Inoue, this album is also ambient at large. Actually, Shades of Orion 2 is just one constant drone that goes on for over 70 minutes, packed full of resonances, spacey atmospheric sounds, cosmic waves sounds, sounds of communicating satellites, and the occasional bass-like boom of a distant star imploding in on itself to create a black hole.

Unlike the last installment, this album has no elements of trance, which I was actually hoping for this time 'round - being quite long and purely ambient, this album overstayed its welcome. Shades of Orion 2 is definitely a pleasant album to enhance anyone's cosmic dreamscape, but is uneventful and not progressive enough to be replayed more than only on occasion. Beautiful, deep, airy, only slightly boring.
