CD REVIEW: OMM – Omnium Omnibus
By Ben Ohmart - 12/03/2002 - 02:44 PM EST

Artist: OMM
Album: Omnium Omnibus
CD Review: This is probably the single best deal available in music at present. 5 bucks at the Omnium site gets you this 67 minute collection of world beat music, taken from the various previous releases from the great Omnium catalog. Yeah, compare that to the $22 they want for a single CD on TV (Now That’s What I Call Music springs to mind) and know that your Brain is getting a Much better deal as well. When the 80s comes back via Oysterband’s ‘On the Edge’ and the girl fronts the violin before the club beat of ‘L.I.L.T.’ from Fiamma Fumana, well, it doesn’t get much better than this:

1 Boiled In Lead • Sugarfoot Congress 4:18
2 Oysterband • On The Edge (single edit) 3:30
3 Horace X • U.K. Cosmopolitan Sound 5:01
4 Fiamma Fumana • L.I.L.T. 4:03
5 Garmarna• Den Bortsålda (Sold Away) 4:22
6 The Ukrainians • Oi Na Hori (On The Hill) 3:01
7 Sviraj • Ti Si Moja Sreca (You Are My Good Fortune) 3:52
8 Reptile Palace Orchestra • Gankino Horo 5:57
9 Ruth MacKenzie • Give Us Room To Roar 3:13
10 3 Mustaphas 3 • Speed The Traktor 4:38
11 Sabah Habas Mustapha & The Jugala All Stars • Di Nagara Deungeun 5:54
12 Dembo Konte & Kausu Kuyateh with the Jali Roll Orchestra • Ami N’Diaye 5:42
13 Tiger Moth • Speed The Plough 2:57
14 John Kirkpatrick Band • The Swirling Serpent / Beast of Burden 3:48
