4.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly good concept album.... 27 April 2001
By A Customer
i got The Omnichord Album as a promo from my Uni newspaper, and was definitely pleasantly surprised. every track on this record features an obscure synth instrument, the Suzuki Omnichord. And many of the lyrics can be read as a celebration of this instrument, or the emotions it evokes. The omnichord itself produces a lush, space-age sort of sound, and an interesting backdrop for the driving drum tracks and the lead singer's dreamy vocals. First single "scream if you want to go faster" is vaguely reminiscent of The Divine Comedy and U2...the album also evokes echoes of Gorillaz, Blur, James, Belle and Sebastian, and The Eels. However, like all good bands, The High Fidelity take influence without copying. Everything on this record is new and interesting; they all sound like lullabies from mars, especially the amazing "Electromale," the fun and funkee "Orgasmatron" (during which the Omnichord gets STOLEN by an anonymous caller!!!), and the delicate perfection of "Nothing Left To Fight." The Omnichord Album was a bold gamble, but surprisingly, one that deserves to pay off handsomely, if only for their elegant use of the mid-song pause...

5.0 out of 5 stars The best album you never bought 16 Jan 2011
This was a concept dreamt up by myself and John Peel after buying him an Omnichord for his 60th birthday . It still is one of my proudest achievements and every track sums up 5 beautiful years spent with Adrian , Ross and Paul . Hopefully one day people will realise how this album and Demonstration by The High Fidelity were completely out on their own and likely 10 years ahead of themselves .
A 2nd Omnichord album is in the making after a strange last 10 years but years a person would have to take to reach this point of being proud of this band .
