i think Xmas is a great record. i'm a big fan of all OMG records and this might be the best (maybe tie w/ Sem 3?) They're just good, gorilla-moshin' songs. (giving u a nice breather in between with the great ambients). I enjoyed Xmas a whole lot more than the new isis - panopticon. and a whole lot more than the last Cave-in - antenna. so to say that OMG isn't as good as the membs other bands, uh, not in my opinion. and besides, OMG has grown into a entirely different beast, cave-in, nor isi

If you can't hear the ISIS-esque guitar skills of Aaron Turner on some of these songs, you simply aren't listening.

"im pretty sure nate newton plays guitar in omg, and the thundering distorted bass grooves belong to caleb scofield."
this is correct. also, that part about how they need to "start" playing live shows... uh, didn't they do a whole tour last year? it'd be cool if people reviewing records actually knew something about the band...
