Quiet, again.

I have been an O'Hearn fan since his Private Music label days. Even to this day, his masterpiece Ancient Dreams and the excellent Between Two Worlds amaze me (iTunes, that you don't offer these two brilliant works here is ridiculous). I have been following his journey ever since, and have enjoyed many of his newer recordings. When I heard O'Hearn was returning to his old analog studio equipment for this new album, I was truly excited to imagine what we would be hearing next, after so many years of his minimal, but well crafted ambient outings. But, unfortunately for me, this album doesn't measure up to what I was hoping for. While this album is indeed as gorgeous as anything O'Hearn has done in the last several years, I was ready for his return to something more overall percussive and groove/ beat driven.

A treasure!

Every Patrick O'Hearn release is a truly a work of consummate art and craftsmanship, each one offering something new and exhilarating. The work found on 'Transitions' has elements both new and familiar, but altogether nothing you've every heard before. Like all the others before this, you can play it on a loop and find something unexpected with each listen. I consider myself lucky indeed to be a lifetime fan of Mr. O'Hearn's has given me peace, hope and inspiration for over two decades. His music is to be treasured.


I have been a fan ever since I heard Trust way back in 95 in Tower Records in the SF Bay Area. I always enjoyed O'Hearn's use of analogue string synths in most of his songs in the 90's(a few in the 80s, with Coba being my favorite O'Hearn song of all time). I gave this album a few weeks to digest. I don't like it that much(almost gave it 2 stars). Its mostly ambient in nature, which isn't bad, but to me, his 'trademark" sound isn't their in many of the songs(2-3 of them or so). My favorites are: 1) Reaching Land(sounds like the 90s stuff), and Playground(with the use of the synth strings)...other than these two, the rest are just average to not good. Disapointing album from a long time fan. One other critisism is that Mr. O'Hearn takes a looong time to release music. Every few years is fine, but 4 years between releases is to long, especially for electronic type music without vocals.
