Tim O’Brien is a low-key, charming performer of acoustic folk and bluegrass music with interests from country to Western swing. He used to front the 80s bluegrass group Hot Rize. I don’t think this CD matches O’Brien’s earlier The Crossing. However, it is a fine companion to that project. If you are a fan of The Chieftains, I think you will enjoy both CDs. Bluegrass fans should check out Hot Rize’s So Long Of A Journey live album.
Tim O'Brien has a mind-boggling range of musical styles, and this one is another aspect of his outreach. This, plus the companion piece ''The Crossing'' (1999) chronicles his exploration into his Irish ancestry. It is full of clarity and variety. Mick Ryan's Lament is outstanding, and close to the most perfect anti-war song I've ever heard. Great instrumentals in here, too. Lots of Tim-style lyrics placed over traditional melodies. I do hope there is more O'Music to come!
