9/10 Phil Staff review, 16 September 2009

I think there's been a fair bit of fretting over Om since Chris Hakius left early last year which isn't really surprising considering he was half the band. Emil Amos from Grails has since stepped in and, despite initial reservations over a contrast of styles, seems to have fitted right in if the couple of times I caught them live last year and this new LP (God Is Good) are anything to go by.

His more elaborate fills do pop up from time to time though, a subtle evolution which is mirrored elsewhere. I think they'd probably taken their minimal metal mantras about as far as they could really go with Conference of the Birds and Pilgrimage so it's perhaps no surprise that this seems to me to be an LP of consolidation, pointing the way to future directions with its slightly more opened up instrumentation (piano, tambura and flute can all be heard at various points), a greater emphasis on little post-production touches and the fact that the shorter tracks are the stronger ones for a change.

A quality LP and hopefully a taster for more to come.
