    O.S.I. - Office Of Strategic Influence


    Year of Release: 2003
    Label: InsideOut
    Catalog Number: IOMCD 116
    Format: CD
    Total Time: 76:05:00

    This review is excerpted from Clayton's March 9, 2003 The Prog Life column found here -ed.

    And speaking of Dream Theater former keyboardists[*], Kevin Moore has gotten together with Dream Theater drummer extraordinaire Mike Portnoy and Fates Warning guitarist Jim Matheos to form the side project, Office Of Strategic Influence. This album sounds exactly what you might expect when combining the hard-edged musical approach of Portnoy and Matheos with the softer, Pink Floyd-style approach of Moore's current group, Chroma Key. To be more specific, this sounds like a Porcupine Tree album. In fact, Porcupine Tree leader Steve Wilson sings one of the songs on this cool disc.

    *which Clayton was in the context of the article, in his Planet X - Moon Babies review; tracklisting is for the 2cd special edition -ed.
