Biography

BIOGRAPHY
Midnight Oil were more than just a rock & roll band. From the northern beaches of Sydney to the streets of Manhattan, they stopped traffic, inflamed passions, inspired fans, challenged the concepts of “business as usual” and broke new ground.

To see Midnight Oil in full flight was to experience the full visceral, transcendent, kinetic power of live rock & ... Read more in Amazon's Midnight Oil Store

5.0 out of 5 stars QUITE SIMPLY AN AWESOME RENDERING FROM THE OILS. 19 Feb 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Easily my all time favourite album. This combines soaring melodies, wonderful harmonies with political comment, scathing lyrics & insights all delivered in a package of wonderful driving rock. If i had to choose just 1 album to keep and ditch the rest of my collection this would be it. Diesel & Dust is quite simply superb !!

5.0 out of 5 stars what an amazing album 8 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
One guy came to me one day and said "listen to that one buddy, it's pretty cool". It was in 1993, and most people had never heard about this band in europe, including myself.

And it was the great shock. It takes only a few seconds to realize what a masterpiece you have. This kind of thing happens rarely. Such an incredible voice, and this powerful, wild sound, coming from "elsewhere"... They reinvented rock & roll, and they did not joke!

Beds are burning was this kind of song that could appeal to almost everyone, from the hard rock purist to the radio amateur. The melody itself is eternal.

Another fantastic song on the album is "put down that weapon". Musically as impressive as the former one, it impresses also with the passion Garret has to deliver his peaceful message.

There is no weak track on this album. I mean, try any of them alone, and you will have something between "positively inspired" and "amazing".

Every track has got this sense of rough urgency that is the "trademark" of the group and in the same time the whole is perfectly produced and played.

Just my opinion, in the "ranking game" : Now that I know most of their albums, I would give 5 stars for 3 of them :

1. 10,9,8,7,6,5...

2. Diesel & Dust

3. Place without a postcard

Enjoy !

5.0 out of 5 stars Oilies Rule! 21 Aug 2003
By 49er
Format:Audio CD
One of the great albums! Gut rock with political undertones from a terrific group. Buy it and play it loud. When you have bought this one, you will want them all.
The band combine the sort of powerhouse playing with lyrics which actually mean something. A long forgotten art. Buy yourself a little magic from Oz, never mind the amber nectar this is the best thing to come of Oz ever .
Far better than their cricket teams!!!!
