Customer Reviews

Very Nice recording. More Consistent than their last.

Caveat: Oregon is my favorite band. Though I enjoyed their previous album, 1000 Kilometers, I found it to be uneven. This album is more consistent and features not only the expected great songs from Ralph T., but also 1 nice song each from the other band members. The recorded sound is good (not quite as good as "Prime" or some other earlier recordings, but still good). The album ends with the title track which captures a drum solo which is pretty representative of what M. Walker does live, so it pretty effectively "takes you there" to the live feel. There is also the expected redux of an old song, in this case "Song for a Friend", which is nicely done. And there is also the expected "soft and melancholy" song, in this case "As She Sleeps". Also soft and highly effective is "Summer's End", which comes from an earlier Ralph T. solo album (Lost and Found). All in all, a very nice record, very definitely recommended. Well done, Oregon !

Their "good" is most group's amazing...

Like Jim (who's review is below) Oregon is BY FAR my favorite band. I have EVERY SINGLE RECORDING they have ever made - ever. I was pleased to hear that they were recording again and that this release came out relatively quickly (for them). In short, this is a GOOD recording from them... Now, let's be clear that these gentlemen work at SUCH a high level of musicianship that their "good" is most group's amazing or break through... Also, as someone who is truly a student of their music and recorded output... this effort gets a "GOOD" from me. The headline for me in this recording is that Mark (the percussionist) finally takes his place as a EQUAL part of the group after being wallpaper and a sideman on several of their previous recordings - here he is assertive and you hear why this man deserves to be in the company of these legendary music makers. I am a little disappointed by the flatness of the recording. There is no depth (like the ECM recordings) or hidden sonic fire (like in the 1970s recordings). In this environment, some lovely tunes become dull and lifeless... That said, I am thrilled that Oregon is still making music, still blazing a trail through countless styles and genres effortlessly. Buy this recording... You'll be happy you did...

4 virtuosos at the top tier of the musical pyramid

These guys are incredible! Just saw them a couple days ago, and the energy they bring to their live shows is great. They got a standing ovation just before intermission, and a longer one after the show.... anyway, this is an amazing record. Key tracks are "Aeolus" and "As She Sleeps".

RIP Collin Wilcot
