OM expands their sound with great results on God is Good. This one has (and I think this is the intent) a timeless, ancient feeling. The extra instrumentation from traditional middle eastern instruments colors the fuzz-bass and drum thunder in a beautiful way throughout. New drummer Emil Amos is a more than capable replacement for Chris Haikus behind the kit, and quite frankly I like his style more. This is a record you'll want to have if you're a fan of theirs, or of creative, forward thinking truly "progressive" rock in general.
Alas, it appears he proved all the detractors wrong and with drummer Emil Amos (from the mighty Grails) in tow, along with THE Steve Albini made a record that's more memorable than any of the other Om output to this date. In my opinion, at least. The added instrumentation, including tamboura and flute give the material a lot of character, while Amos uses his skills to his advantage on the second half of this all-too-short record. God is Good, indeed, insofar that this is playing within hearing distance.
