Format: Audio CD
The second album in a trilogy named 'Thank Your Parents', this 3-disc affair sees Oneida treading familiar ground but in a grandiose way that not only sums up their overall sound nicely but also propels them into the future with speed.

Each disc clocks in at around 40 minutes and it's obvious that it's conceptual rather than just cramming together a load of previously unreleased material. Disc one is strictly 'new sound' with styles Oneida normally steer clear of, such as the ragge-booty-bass drums of the first track and the screaming nightmare that is the last track. I was worried that it would all be like this, but it seems they're really stretching their wings without losing sight of their true noise.

Disc two is a lot more familiar, chiming in the repetitive hypnotism of their disjointed racket and the punk rock elements of albums like 'Secret Wars' and 'Each One Teach One', it has some psychedelic jams that are extremely satisfying and some new and exciting techniques that sent chills up my spine.

Disc three is a lot more like their previous record 'Preteen Weaponry' in that it consists of two long and noisy jams that are typically entrancing (if you know your Oneida)... At times, I found myself staring at the floor while I was supposed to be working, it just engulfs your brain. I don't know how they can be so repetitive and not get boring at all. They must be using some kind of ... MAGIC.

Quite honestly though, this album is superb and any fans of Jimi Hendrix, Parts & Labor, Om and other noise rock/thicker-than-steel psychedelia should seriously give this band a go. This album does not disappoint!

Format: Audio CD
A very impressive CD, in fact a triple CD, that totters on the edge of self indulgence in places but is very entertaining. The first CD is a mix of many influences but with a dance rock edge. This was intially my least favourite but it is real grower and gets more interesting on each listen. The tracks are also gererally shorther - about 5 minutes. The second CD is virtually heavy metal / space rock with lots of early 1970s Hawkwind and Black Sabbath type riffs thrown into the mix. I found this the most immediate and it's my favourite. The final disc is very much Kraut Rock with shades of Julian Cope's longer mid period tracks and the tracks (all three of them) hover around the 15-20 minute mark. I also caught the band live at the refurbised Garage in North London in August 09 - several tracks from this set were played and they did not disappoint. Highly recommended 9/10.

I bought this on a whim and know nothing about Oneida or their previous work. It's worth a listen and I was pleased to find Oneida push the experimental boundaries. No three minute verse, chorus, verse, chrous MTV-friendly blandness here and that's a very good thing. As with a lot of bands that push the envelope a bit it doesn't always work. When they get it right though, it's fantastic.

The 3rd CD is my favourite. Repetition done properly with a definite Krautrock influence in there. At least one track is about 20 minutes long but that's not a problem. When you've got the groove right why change it baby? The thing is these tracks do change but very subtlety and it's done in such a way that it feels like a thorough head massage. Another thing I like is it doesn't the same as anything else I've heard. If you need a frame of reference it's similar to Wooden Shjips. But only simialar.

The 1st CD I don't rate. Strikes me this is dance musuc done by people who don't really understand dance music. It's at the heavier end of spectrum but has nothing remarkable to make repeated listens attractive.

CD two is fairly heavy and repetitive but unlike the last CD is not chillout stuff. Has it's moments but for me the repitition thing is better with calmer music. Otherwise it can be a bit like a pneumatic drill!

I read a couple of good reviews about the album and thought I would splash out on it. Three CDs for £9 isn't bad. Good points, Oneida are one of those bands that can jam on a groove without it getting boring and repetative. I think there are some fast ones, some slow ones and some with vocals on. Bad points, some of the tracks are 10 or 20 mins long and it can all blend into one if you are not careful. Not even 2 hours of music on 3 CDs.

Well worth a try though.

The Oneida record I've been wanting for so long 10 Aug 2009
By J. ausura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Every one of their records have given me a little bit of something I liked, but this one finally puts them towards the top of my list of favorite bands. It starts out completely electronic dub and ends as a psych freak out worthy of any Acid Mothers/Can/Amon Duul fan's attention - over the course of 2 hours. Maybe the best part is that the progression feels totally natural. It makes a 3 disc set seem like something that any indie rock band in 2009 should be doing, although I can't name a single other band who could pull it off.

It's probably not the kind of record that fans of Oneida's more concise songwriting will fall in love with. Then again, it's hard to imagine an Oneida fan that can't stomach some ambitious scale. If you like any kind of psych or krautrock you'll probably think this is the second coming.

One of the best records of 2009 30 Oct 2009
By D-Cos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rated O is the second of a projected triptych of albums slated from Oneida and i can't imagine them surpassing this. Oneida's new album may not be for everyone but if you like unforgiving sonic and psychedelic exploration and tightly crafted krautrock thrills (tracks 6-9), this won't disappoint. The amazing thing about Rated O is how much new ground they traverse in these songs. But this shouldn't come as a surprise to fans of the band. They have tinkered their brand of music with every album regardless of what fans or slimeball journalists want from them. Buy this album and listen to it alone, the journey will be worth your time.
