Oberon

Regress Records (Argentina)

Reviewed by:Nicole, Derek and Kevin


Derek: So this is a Norwegian on an Argentine record label. This is the global economy at work.
Kevin: Being reviewed in an American magazine. Praise GATT.
Kevin: So this seems like a cross between new-age, rock, latin and jazz.
Nicole: It seems like there is a tiny bit of John Tesh in there
Kevin: More like Yanni with all the synths going on. Wow, heís singing in English. Why?
Nicole: I was going to say Yanni, but it doesnít sound that pretentious
Kevin: If you, Yanni and John Tesh were on an airplane and there was only one parachute, what would you do?
Nicole: I would attach Yanni and John Tesh together and throw them out.
Kevin: I would commit suicide.
Derek: Iím allowed to just take the parachute arenít I?
Kevin: I donít think this is as bad as either of them, but I think that Yanni or Tesh fans would probably dig this more than us.
Derek: Is this what Norwegian music sounds like in general?
Kevin: I bet most Norwegian music isnít sung in English. Itís just the cheesy synth sounds that really bug me. With his bass voice, if you had guitars instead of synths, this might almost sounds like Death Metal
Derek: Maybe we should stop before we upset Oberon too much.
Kevin: yeah, I guess Iím having a problem being an impartial CD reviewer here, because Iíve exchanged e- mail with Oberon and he actually seems like a nice guy. I wouldnít recommend his CD though honestly.

Kevin: whatís this? Oh, it was good for a minute.
Derek: I think that he only put on the initials of the next song because it was too sappy.
Nicole: What is it?
Derek: Love is the Light Of The World
