    No wonder Sonic Youth asked them to open some of their concerts : it's noisy, crafted, with big hints of jazz. It's also the most astounding psychedelic record I've heard in long times. Sometimes it sounds like old school Herbie Hancock mixed with loads of ethnic sounds and noisy guitars ("I'm a song"). OOIOO is far superior to the Boredoms, and that says how gifted No wonder Sonic Youth asked them to open some of their concerts : it's noisy, crafted, with big hints of jazz.

    OOIOO are truly creative. This album has a strong psychedelic and krautrock touch and sparse melodies that could go on forever. If you like german rock or free jazz, this is for you.

  1. Gold and Green may be the band's most approachable album, but as with all their releases, it's a charming reminder that experimental music doesn't have to sound like it was hard work to make.
  2. Fortunately, the huge elemental diversity on G&G is more spread out than on previous efforts, leaving breathing room and allowing each well-crafted sound to sink in.
  3. Gold and Green finds its mark far more consistently than Kila, despite being a far more expansive and rambling album.
