Oneida - Rated O

Speaking of ambitious projects, how about a triple (!) album of wild experimental music that takes a lot of its goals upon the idea of repetition and the different states it can induce on its listeners? That's exactly what this indie project from Brooklyn has in store with Rated O, which apparently is only the second album in a trilogy named Thank Your Parents. Being veterans as they are, it's audible that Oneida are also becoming more and more experts in the studio, and even when pushing limits to the extreme, you can always feel that these are really-well-crafted jams made by two sound scientists cleverly manipulating the resources on their hands. With an impossible balance between meticulous labor and delirious instincts, they create almost 2 hours of diverse and unclassifiable songs that take influences on psychedelic rock, krautrock or hard rock, only to end up with something genuinely original and truly hypnotic on the way (8/10)
