5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 31 Jan 2014
This review is from: Lousy with Sylvianbriar (Audio CD)
The greatest.... and I mean the greatest.... undiscovered band of the last ten years. Complex, audacious, funny, inventive, groovy, sexy and disturbing. The bastard mutated children of David Bowie Frank Zappa and Prince. Played a blinder at Green Man 2012. Ripped the lid off the tent!

Brilliant album great songwriting and lush waaaarm production. No filler at all - love the cover too. Apparently oM having been recording for eons and have been right under my radar until lately - I love finding artistes like this with such an amazing back-catalogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great - Accessible, 22 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lousy with Sylvianbriar (Audio CD)
Great album, a lot more accesible music than the last couple of albums, hints of Suede, Bowie as well as the usual fantastic Of Monteal sound, several catchy tunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars back on top, 22 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lousy with Sylvianbriar (Audio CD)
I'll keep this short and sweet: this is the best and most accessible oM album since Hissing Fauna, and one of the best of the year. Although the rest of the band has changed, this is still very much Kevin Barnes' songwriting talent on display, so you probably either like him loads or you don't. Not many artists can cover so many different styles and pull it off. I was lucky enough to hear these pre-release and acoustic, and after a couple of slightly overindulgent, slightly overproduced, slightly inconsistent albums, he manages it again here. This is a band that's been going a long time so i've been expecting them to drop off but for now oM remains (imho) one of the great under-appreciated bands in the independent rock/pop music world. In 20 years or so, depending slightly how their next albums go, and after many of us are old or no longer interested in new music - I wonder if Barnes will be recognized as one of the all time great singer/songwriters, up there with the likes of David Bowie.
