I can't stop playing Oasis at the moment, Zion in particular. '97 was obviously a good year for soundtrack releases, but why doesn't this one get more mentions. Definitely one of the better '90's albums

I think Summer Storm is genuine 'best of' candidate. Beautiful melody and danceable rhythms.
I'm playing it right now. I give it 6/10, as there are some dull moments and I do think the versions of Flashflood and Waterborne, are best with Zlatko's guitar.
Nice to read and write on the forum, while people somewhere else in the world are hearing the same music.

I believe the Canyon Cazuma dvd will contain the EF composed tracks from Oasis and Canyon Dreams. It's a bit of a shame that father and son are clinging so much to their own stuff, that the original dvd's can't be released in their proper form. I have none of them, and to sit through only Edgar's tracks might become a bit too new-agey for me.

Oasis is pretty bad in my opinion. I cant stand Zlatko's guitar playing. It makes my ears bleed. I lost my copy of Oasis (I left it on a plane), and have yet to replace it. I feel bad that my TD collection is not complete but really never listened to it much.

The albums that came shortly after Oasis are a massive improvement to me.

I'm not a huge fan of 90's releases, but IMO this is a much more consistent album than TOTT, TOB, Rockoon, Atlantic Walls, Atlantic Bridges, Tournado, Valentine Wheels and Mars Polaris. I also prefer it to the DM series.

To be honest, I havent heard Oasis in a long time. I should give it another try and will probably pick up a copy of it on the used market. Now that I think of it, it may be Tournado that I dont like very much. I find it soooo hard to keep albums from that era separate in my mind. The tunes all sound the same! Bland, bland, and bland.

I know what you mean Tom. If I can't instantly recognise at least two tracks from an album, then it doesn't rate highly with me. A lot of 90's album tracks are insipid and way too similar.

Oasis must be a good album. Over at Amazon.com there are used copies selling for $150 and $59 dollars!!

It's not that good. I recently paid £5 for a new copy. :D

Agreed Mick, definately underrated a great album IMO along with Goblin's Club it got me back interested in TD after a dodgy period early 90's.

I have to say this is a quality recording :shock: Flashflood and Waterbourne are total class IMHO,Saw them play these on the 97 tour and ZPs guitar antics were top quality.......on a whole the album is very nice/all IMHO of course :wink:

That would be my assessment. Good album. Haven't listened to it for a while, must dig it out. Too many CDs, not enough time.
