"In this age of expanded-definition stoner when just about anything seems to qualify as long as it has a catchy riff, it’s reassuring to know that there are acts like OJM out there giving new life to the rooted conventions of the style...." (

"...With a history that spans 13 years and several releases, you would hope that OJM would have a little more to offer and they certainly do. Sure, this is a riff fest from start to finish but the riff is integral to the song in each case and not just something that sounds cool that the rest of the band have to follow, as seems to be the case with so much stoner nowadays. In songs such as “Rainbow” and “Ocean Hearts” the riff actually becomes secondary to the soaring vocal melodies that pull the songs along.
