3 stars US ensemble OHO was formed in 1973 and is still an active unit today, rapidly closing in on its 40th anniversary: Not without a fair share of challenges and line-up alterations along the way however, the financial ones of the former often making a large impact on the latter. "Okinawa" was their first-ever production, initially issued as a privately pressed vinyl LP in 1974, reissued on CD in the 90's, and now remastered and reissued again in 2010.

If you generally enjoy challenging progressive rock as it was made in the 70's, and in particular if you fancy a band emphasizing the lyrical and vocal dimensions of that approach, you'll most likely find Oho's "Okinawa" to be an interesting experience. Not without faults, but with 30 creations to explore there should be plenty of material to enjoy even if a few should be given the skip.
