.o.rang's Fields and Waves: this field is private
12/19/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Fields and Waves," .O.Rang's followup to the album "Herd of Instict," seems a masterpiece in so many ways. Paul Webb and Lee Harris, formerly of the 80s group Talk Talk, bring a wonderful array of exotic instruments into a sort of bluesy, electronic atmosphere. They even create their own "instruments" using programming, layering, and lots of expirimentation. Some ".O.riginal Treated Instruments" include acoustic guitars and basses. Some tracks include the kindly layered "P.53," the groovy "Jalap" and the fun piece, "Hoo." This album is a great accomplishment by Webb and Harris, just as Herd of Instinct is. Anyone who's a fan of Talk Talk should listen to this disc, as should followers of industrial artists such as Tool and nine inch nails.-Bill Washburn (indigae)"
An outstanding release from the rhythm section of Talk Talk.

"_Fields & Waves_ is even better than O Rang's first release, _Herd of Instinct_. Like its predecessor, this set of songs is best described as a successful mixture of several genres of music that focus on rock and, to a lesser but still very significant and immediately noticeable extent, ambient, jungle, and house music. The entire first half of the CD is a tour de force, with non-stop excellent tracks coming in a refreshing, highly inventive, rhythmical, and sometimes even catchy wave of sounds both familiar and alien. The songs generally become less intriguing after the ostinato sitar and distant, abrasive electric guitar wails of "Moratorium" -- with the exception of "Forest," a jungle/ambient composition with unintelligible Native American-style chants and "Chemical Brothers lite" break beats that's one of the best tracks on the disc -- but how often do you hear a CD on which over half the tracks are pure gold? Paul Webb and Lee Harris have created something extraordinary, here; don't miss this."
Remainds of the Future

"The Music of 'O' Rang remind me the inner power that sleeps in my soul. The rythms conduct me to the origins of everythings where lives the non- style, and the music sounds evoque me the future to come in this extrange ellipsis when the extremes are in contact revealing the edge of something that changes and always remains the same:
Music to love across the time that never tired.
Music that penetrates my conscience to enjoy without the categories of time when the rythms make the rituals of ours inner life."
