Special Collaborator
4 stars A matured but fresh music compilation for over forty years, filled with speedy groove like typhoon with bright lightning. Their newest creation "Where Words Do Not Reach" released in 2015 sounds like a novel sound explosion by a young promising act, and at the same time, like a mellow but a tad mischievous musical vibration by a veteran. Yes OHO can be called as one of avantgarde / psychedelic progressive vanguards founded in mid 1970s in Baltimore, but we cannot help feeling curious why no old-fashioned nor elderly texture be around them. Their magnificent intention for grabbing innovative musical method or impressive sound structure is, and will be kept in their open mind.

It's sorta pity their playing style, simpleness of creation, or composition method could not be thought progressive (I'm afraid freaks of so-called progressive rock nowadays could not understand their innovative points of musical view indeed), but without any suspicion they ring our bells along with funny, funky, and cynical melodic logic like Zappa, that obviously should be stuffed into short song stories of theirs. Guess there are always plenty of substantial or psychological hints for their bulky, massive creativity around them, and they would have got and digested precious material smoothly and swiftly. That's the reason why they have no authentic nor legendary vein in their creation but magmatic attachment for innovation and pleasure.

Let me say OHO can be interpreted as acronyms of "originality, humanity, and opacity" (sorry for my cheep cheesy joke), and I do hope they will be active, aggressive, and anti-conservative ... maybe not only me.
