5 stars OGO DYS is the one-man project of Halmstad, Sweden based Magnus E.A. Lundberg who has created many alias for his projects but this one as OGO DYS has got to be the most eclectic and weird of all. This project basically existed from 2008 - 2013 with four albums, two EPs and a compilation. OVERION-3 is the second album after the debut "Neptune Everywhere" and the following EP titled "Ohm." Once again, this is the Magnus Lundberg hour where he plays everything and displays his knack for cross-pollinating the most disparate styles of music possible in the most creative and often bizarrely creative manners ever. This one was only released as a CD-R on Cosmic Pancake Productions in Sweden and on the 100% Zero Records in the US.

OVERION-3 continues the eclectic freak show with four tracks all titled "Phase" with the numbers "I" "II" "III" & "IV" following. This album runs over the 34 minute mark and displays some longer tracks that wend and wind all over the friggin place but still keep a general groove and pace unlike the frenetic nature of the debut. In fact i'd say that OGO DYS perfects the stylistic approach laid down on "Neptune Everywhere" as it continues the eclectic mix of Cardaics prog x punk rock, Zappa inspired avant-prog angularity, Mr Bungle genre fusion with the addition of psychedelic and experimental sound effects and crafts a more focused and mature presentation of these possibilities. There are also still elements of those Oingo Boingo cartoony moments as well as classical music explorations but one thing is for sure, dude is ADD AF and that doesn't change here at all.

Perhaps the biggest difference on OVERION-3 is that this album plays more like a classical music album that has different suites and generates an infinite supply of tone, timbre and time signature changes but still has key melodic underpinnings that maintain a thread of continuity that makes this an infinitely more mature album than the adolescent angsty predecessors but that does not mean that this one is not without its moments of tantrum inducing angst, it simply means that the compositions are more focuses as how to deliver the disparate rotisserie of styles that generate like a Mr Bungle meets Pryapisme marathon of friggin music genre ninja warrior olympics. There are also moments of pure classical music that while executed well also display the limitations of being a one-man band at least in terms of production however Lundberg as a musician is flawless and juggles all the elements of virtuosity with gusto.

Despite all the elements on board, there are moments when i feel the whole thing is going to bust into the theme music for The Simpsons as there is a significant underpinning of Danny Elfman going on with the music of OGO DYS although that quickly dissipates when the music becomes jazzy funk and then i'm thinking more that this reminds me of some of the Buckethead Pikes that followed this. Could BH have heard any of this weirdness? Probably not but the music of OGO DYS is much more sophisticated than the chicken lover and favors quality over quantity. "Phase IV" has some great samplings from the 1959 sci-fi film "Plan 9 From Outer Space" that goes into extreme avant-prog territory unlike anything else. OMG this is the coolest track ever! Zappa outbursts enshrouded by wild and unusual counterpoints on full prog mode for over nine minutes which infuses cartoon music and punk is like the coolest ever! OMG! This album is perfect for hardcore extremists who love music at its most avant-garde fueled with a punk energy.
