Ohgr, the nouveau-industrial collaboration between Skinny Puppy's Ogre Nevik and Mark Walk, returns with the sophomore chapter of its wry, 21st century schizoid man industrial shtick. The delicious, silly pun of its title is a knowing wink to longtime fans and paranoids alike, a telling hint of just how seriously the industrial music vets may take themselves. But their music is another matter, and the Ogre/Walk duo manage to cut through the slick showbiz hoodoo of more successful contemporaries like Marilyn Manson and White Zombie, seeking no less than to tap into the rich tangled, if oft-oxidized roots of industrial/electro rock, from Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle to "HiLo"'s more dance-floor-friendly nods to OMD and the Silicon Teens. Punctuated with compelling digital noise, fervent beats, and deceptively soothing interludes, Ogre's processed voice haunts "JaKo" and "WaTergaTe" like a malignant computer virus. Yet there's an often playful '80s electro-pop sense at work throughout, from subtle melodic touches to the overall economy they bring to every track, even the propulsive sequencing of the instrumental "ShiTe". Enhanced CD also contains a video for the track "MaJik" --Jerry McCulley

"This, the second chapter in Ohgr's "let's see what kind of weird effects I can get out of this keyboard" saga. SunnyPsyOp is definitely a step up and a step forward in a different direction than it's older sibling; Welt. This album is much darker than Welt, and seems to take a few steps into Skinny Puppy industrial territory. SunnyPsyOp also seems to be much more cohesive than Welt as most of the songs are connected between intro's and outro's, and all seem to fit nicely together. The CD also comes with a great video (for your computer) for the song MaJiK. My only complaint about the album is it seems a tad bit short and perhaps could have had a few more tracks on there. Aside from that, yet another great musical achievement from Mister Ogre."
Better than Welt

"Welt was pretty good, but this one blows that record out of the water. It is so much more lush and varied in style. Songs like Jako and Majik are highlights. One or two may be less memorable but as a whole this proves that Ogre can hold his own ground. I dont mind one bit that he is singing, even if I did prefer his sick as hell distorted vocals that were present on earlier puppy releases. He sounds great on here and I totally recommend this to Ogre and Cevik Key fans alike. Also get Cevin Key's "The Dragon Experience." That record is also essential like SunnyPsyOp is and all Skinny Puppy albums are!"
